Every day, Microsoft makes Xbox Game Pass a better and better deal for players able to afford a $15-a-month subscription. Dozens of games of all types are currently available for subscribers, giving them a massive on-demand library of games that includes some truly great titles. And not only has it grown today, it’s going to get much bigger in the coming year.
Amid all of the announcements made during today’s X019 event, Microsoft made time to hype Game Pass and announce several games for the service. This included games new and old, AAA and indie, with highlights including ten classic Final Fantasy games and three of the more recent games in the Yakuza series. All of these and more were shown off in a highlight reel at X019 that offers a quick glimpse at what’s coming to subscribers in the coming year.
That rollout of new games actually starts today, with the addition of games like Rage 2, Remnant: From the Ashes, The Talos Principle, and today’s big release, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. This will continue throughout the rest of November and into December, as the holiday season will mark the Game Pass debut of high-profile titles like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Halo: Reach, and Life is Strange 2.
Then, after that, 2020 will see even more additions ranging from to new indie games to classic AAA games. What’s more, Microsoft will continue to add more games to Xbox Game Pass the day they launch, so subscribers won’t have to wait to jump into the likes Minecraft Dungeons and Microsoft Flight Simulator, as well as all of the 2020-bound first-party titles announced at X019 today.
Capping off the Game Pass announcements, Microsoft announced that it is once more offering a huge discount on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions. If anyone is still on the fence about Game Pass, they can get three whole months for just $1-a-month. Naturally, this is a limited time deal, so Xbox owners should act fast.
Also worth noting, while Xbox Game Pass is available on PC as well as Xbox One, not every game will be accessible for both platforms. And while the games in the highlight reel do show which platforms they are or will be playable on, curious subscribers should check out Xbox’s website for more information.
