Xbox’s Game Pass to Receive at Least Five New Titles Per Month
A few weeks ago, Xbox launched their subscription based game service, which will allow subscribers to have access to a library of over a hundred games. The service includes games such as Halo 5, Gears of War, and many others. During this years E3, more details about the cycle of games on Xbox’s Game Pass emerged.
Xbox’s Game Pass Senior Product Manager Dennis Ceccarelli spoke about the program during an Xbox live stream at E3. According to Ceccarelli, on the first of every month, at least five titles will be added to the library of playable games:
So on the first of every month, you’re going to see at least five new games enter the Game Pass catalogue — every single month. Again, we’re really trying to give a great mix of games across different ratings, different experiences, different genres, so no matter who you are, if you’re a Game Pass member, every single month there’s something new for you to play.”
One of the big concerns among fans is how long games will stay available. With larger RPG titles, there comes the question of how long the game will take to complete, and if it’s worth trying through the Game Pass if players won’t have enough time to finish the title. Ceccarelli assures fans that games will spend enough time in the library to fully enjoy them:
We see a lot of questions and a lot of assumptions about, ‘When are these games going to leave the catalog?’ While there’s not one set amount of time that a game will be in the catalog, and some titles will leave the catalog eventually, I want to put some fears at rest because our first games won’t be leaving the catalog until late November.
In reality, the vast majority of our games are going to be in there much, much longer than that so you’ve got plenty of time to play through the great experiences that are in Game Pass, engage with DLC, just really enjoy that content — it’s not leaving tomorrow.”
Not only will subscribers of Xbox’s Game Pass be able to play the titles, a discount will be offered to any game in the library as long as the subscription is active. Currently, the monthly subscription runs at $9.99 per month. There is also a 14 day free trial for those who want to check it out before they commit to the monthly amount.
