Xbox Live Gold subscribers can now benefit from a 14-day free trial of Microsoft’s new Xbox Game Pass which will launch officially on June 1.
For $9.99 a month you’ll get more than 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games including popular titles like Bioshock and Gears of War as well as smaller titles. These will rotate on a monthly basis and gives subscribers the chance to download rather than stream the games, the preferred method for Microsoft’s competitors. This means that players wont have to worry about network problems both local and server-side that could hamper the game playing experience.
Game Pass is great for anyone who wants a collection without having to select and purchase games individually and with many more popular games soon to be announced, it seems well worth the price tag.
Once launched the Xbox Game Pass will be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK, and United States.
