Microsoft have made some exciting changes to their Xbox Game Pass, the monthly subscription service which provides Xbox One gamers with a Netflix-like library of games to download.
An announcement from Phil Spencer on Major Nelson’s blog today revealed that all new first party Microsoft titles will be added to Game Pass the day they are released at retail.
“Today, we’re excited to announce plans for a major expansion to Xbox Game Pass that underscores our commitment to deliver our fans the ultimate gaming subscription service.
Moving forward, we plan to release all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release. This means that when Sea of Thieves launches on March 20, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass to all members.”
Xbox Game Pass currently costs £7.99 per month, with free 14 day trials available for new subscribers (and potentially an extra month free if you turn on auto-renew)
