Every year the Black Friday craze hits earlier, and while we aren’t even into the Thanksgiving week just yet, console manufacturers are already battling it out.

Microsoft has already opened the dances with its Black Friday deals open to Xbox Live Gold members, but there is a juicy one for everyone. Those who don’t have an Xbox Game Pass subscription can get the first month for $1 (or €1 if you’re in Europe).

Unfortunately, the deal is open only to first-time subscribers, but it’s still rather sweet. There are no strings attached, so if you don’t want to pay the $9,99 (or €9,99) required after the first discounted month, you can simply unsubscribe.

The service gives you unlimited access to over 100 games until they’re rotated out of the line-up, including titles like Halo 5: Guardians, Mad Max, Metro: Last Light Redux and more.

In order to advertise the deal, Microsoft released a new ad featuring the same theme and actor from the one launched a few days ago. You can watch it below.

Recently, Microsoft’s executives explained that Xbox Game Pass is “off to a very good start” and is “showing promising early results.” CEO Satya Nadella himself explained that the goal of the service is to become a sort of “Netflix of Games” accessible across different devices. For now, the service is available only on Xbox One.
