According to the official Xbox page on Facebook, Xbox Game Pass is poised to release on June 1st and include 100 plus games at launch, and a nifty 14 day free trial.
For those that don’t know: back in February Microsoft announced Xbox Game Pass, a new gaming subscription service that grants you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 Games at the price point of $9.99 USD per month. How it works is that every month new games will cycle into the subscription, while some will cycle out, meaning you have a constant stream of new experiences to play in your library.
Available on both Windows 10 and Xbox One, Game Pass is only purchasable at a monthly subscription rate. The service is notably not a streaming service, meaning you actually download games; however, downloading games doesn’t mean you own them, but you will have access to them if you retain the subscription. Once you download a game you can play offline for up to 30 days.
The Game Pass also notably comes packed with discounts that include 20% on Xbox One game purchases and 10% on all related add-ons, such as season passes and DLC. The discounts only apply when the base game is currently in the catalog.
A launch library has not been divulged, but we do know that games like Halo 5, Payday 2, and LEGO Batman will be available.
