At the recent Gamescom event, Microsoft unveiled that the Xbox Game Pass will come to more countries on September 1, 2017. Since the launch of its Xbox Game Pass service, when the service had 100 games available with support for 31 countries all over the world, Microsoft added more titles to the table. Subscribers can play more fun games now, and because of the expansion of the service their number will increase now.

The Xbox Game Pass library

Microsoft is granting a free 14-day restriction-free trial subscription to the service. Along with added support for more countries, more titles will reach the existing game library on September 1. Check out the new cool addition to the Xbox Game Pass library below:

Don’t worry that the already existing titles will go away because this is not going to happen. The previously included games will not cycle out, and Microsoft itself confirmed this. The company promised that the games that are already available on the service would not get cycled out of the library until November.

Eight new countries to receive the service

The eight countries that will get access to the Xbox Game Pass on September 1 are: Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, South Africa, Turkey, UAE, Argentina, Brazil and Israel.

Xbox Design Lab service expands to more countries

Another significant announcement that was made by Microsoft at Gamescom 2017 is that the Xbox Design Lab service will expand to 22 more countries and they include the following: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Romania, Portugal, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.

The Xbox Design Lab provides users the opportunity to create custom Xbox controllers packed with unique accents, metallic finishes and all kinds of grip options. You get to choose from a vast range of colors, and you can even engrave them with whatever text you want.
