Xbox Games Pass gets new Microsoft Studios games on release

Launched in June 2017, Xbox Game Pass allowed gamers access to a library of games for $9.99 a month.

Last year, Phil Spencer stated in an interview with The Guardian that he and Shannon Loftis talked about how a service like Xbox Game Pass could benefit narrative-focused single-player games as audiences for those experiences aren't as "consistent" and it's a hard business decision to finance them.

Xbox Game Pass will now include access to all Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios as soon as they're released. It'll also include the upcoming State of Decay 2, Crackdown 3 and the future games from Microsoft's biggest franchises - Halo, Forza and Gears of War.

With the launch of Xbox Game Pass last June, Microsoft chose to start treating Xbox One more like Netflix, offering access to lots of games in return for $9.99 per month.

The battle lines in the gaming console market have been drawn yet again as Microsoft has finally launched its gaming console Xbox One X in India. Subscribers will be able to hold onto save files to pick right back up where the game was left off if the subscription is renewed or the game is purchased. It's going to be launched on March 20th.

Rs 509: The plan revision was also applied here, post which users get 1GB data per day for 91 days instead of 84 days. Some of the rivalry tweets held previous year between Reliance Jio and many others telecom service providers.

As part of the expansion of Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft will be partnering with GameStop to offer a new subscription card for those who want to give the service as a gift or don't want to pay online.

It's hard for anyone to argue against subscribing to Xbox Game Pass at this point, if you already own an Xbox One at least.

Consumers can also buy the Xbox One X from Landmark and Croma retail stores.

To date Xbox Game Pass has only included older games. Recently released first-party games, like "Forza Motorsport 7" and "Cuphead", are notoriously missing from the Game Pass service; despite today's announcement, Microsoft says it doesn't "have any other announcements at this time" regarding those titles. Clearly Microsoft sees subscriptions as more lucrative than boxed game sales now.
