Microsoft have revealed plans to introduce an EA Access-like subscription service of their very own, giving subscribers “unlimited access” to more than 100 titles for $9.99 per month.
According to Spencer, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to “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.”
Subscribers can purchase all games in the Xbox Game Pass library at a 20% discount, while their add-ons will receive a 10% price drop. More games will be added every month, with some being cycled out to provide subscribers with a “constantly-updating library of games.”
An alpha version of Xbox Game Pass will begin rolling out to select members of the Xbox Insider Program today with a limited number of titles available. The service will initially be exclusive to Xbox Live Gold members when it launches later this spring, before being made available to the “broader community.”
