Upon its launch in June of 2017, the Xbox Game Pass released with the intent to create a service that kept gamers in mind. This meant that Microsft sought to create a service that boasted a diverse, ever-expanding library of over 100 games for its consumers, complemented with one monthly price.
Due to the overwhelming response the service has received thus far, Microsoft has today announced plans for a major expansion to the Xbox Game Pass service. This expansion includes plans to release all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios into the Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release!
This, for example, means that upon the release of Sea Of Thieves on March 20, it will also be included in the Xbox Game Pass to all members.
On top of this exciting announcement, Microsoft has also announced more choice in their subscription offerings for the Game Pass. More specifically, this means that they are working closely with retail partners to offer a 6-month Xbox Game Pass subscription card for fans seeking a variety of ways to purchase and enjoy new games and services. The 6-month Game Pass subscription card will be available at select retail partners for 59.99 USD from March 20.
With the addition of more games, new releases, and the new subscription offer, Microsoft is giving their fans more choice and value in how they discover and enjoy their games — whether this be a purchase for their permanent library, or they’re playing through the Xbox Game Pass.
