Beginning this spring, Microsoft is venturing into a new Netflix-like game subscription service called the Xbox Game Pass. For a monthly fee of $9.99, Xbox owners will have access to more than 100 Xbox One games and also titles that are backward compatible ready.
With this subscription service, games can be easily downloaded directly to your console and notable games such as Halo 5: Guardians, SoulCalibur II, NBA 2K16 and PayDay 2 is included in the lineup.

One of the best things about Xbox Game Pass is that you can discover and download the full titles directly on your Xbox One. That means continuous, full-fidelity gameplay without having to worry about streaming, bandwidth or connectivity issues. In addition, all Xbox One games in the catalog – and related add-ons – will be available to purchase at an exclusive discount for Xbox Game Pass members, so you can make the games you love part of your permanent library to play whenever you want. Every month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, giving you a constantly-updating library of games. Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play.[/quote]
The Xbox Game Pass will be updated monthly with more games being added into the library and some titles will be removed. Microsoft did clarify to Kotaku that if players choose to unsubscribe from Xbox Game Pass, only their access to the games library are removed. Their saved game data will be available should the players renew their subscription to the pass or purchase the game from the catalog.
As a subscriber to this service, all games on the Xbox One catalog will be 20% cheaper and another 10% discount on related add-ons, if the base game is available in the catalog.
