During Microsoft‘s E3 press conference, Xbox announced a number of new titles coming to Game Pass. The subscription service for its family of Xbox One video game consoles is described as “Netflix for video games” and grants users a catalog of games from a number of developers. Launched on June 1, 2017, it has proven to be a rather popular service for Microsoft.
Without a doubt, the biggest games coming to Game Pass are Fallout 4, The Division, and The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. With Fallout 4 coming to Game Pass today, many gamers may be getting in some pre-Fallout: 76 time in order to prepare for the latest installment in the franchise. In fact, each of the aforementioned titles is available for Game Pass subscribers today.
Moreover, it was also revealed that Halo: Master Chief Collection will also be joining Xbox’s subscription service later this year, as well as Forza Horizon 4 and Crackdown 3, becoming available through Xbox Game Pass at launch, in a manner similar to Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2. It also appears that Gears 5 – the next installment in the Gears of War franchise – will be receiving the Xbox Game Pass treatment at launch.
While the above games are plenty reason to pick up the Game Pass subscription, there’s plenty more coming as well, including Ashen, Warhammer Vermintide 2, After Party, and Phoenix Point at release. This news follows a Microsoft announcement back in January that revealed the expansion of Game Pass to include titles at-launch, which is something many subscribers may certainly appreciate.
Nevertheless, these games will certainly be welcomed into the catalog as E3 moves forward. Bethesda’s conference begins tonight at 6:30 PM PT / 9:30 PM ET, and considering Fallout played a major role in Microsoft’s conference, it will be interesting to see what Bethesda has in store.
