Microsoft announces Xbox Game Pass service

Microsoft announces the Xbox Game Pass service for the Xbox One. For 10 euros per month you get access to ‘more than 100’ Xbox 360 and Xbox One games.

A first ad for the Game Pass shows that games such as Halo 5, Mad Max, LEGO Batman, Payday 2, Fable 3, Gears of War: Ultimated Edition and Saints Row 4 are part of the offer.

Publishers 2K, 505 Games, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, Sega, SNK, THQ Nordic and Warner Bros. are also part of the program. The range of games keeps changing according to Microsoft.

According to Microsoft, the Game Pass service does not use streaming technology. Instead, the games you select will be downloaded to your Xbox One. According to Microsoft, this ensures that you do not suffer from problems while playing.

The Xbox Game Pass service is launching this spring. It is not yet known exactly when the service will launch. Earlier this month Microsoft unveiled the Xbox Games With Gold for the month of March.
