Xbox Game Pass: What is it and what games can you play? Now includes Rocket League

Posted On: Jul 11, 2018   |   Posted By: Pocket-lint

As well as Xbox Live Gold, which is mandatory for online gaming, Microsoft offers a separate monthly subscription service for gamers: Xbox Game Pass. It gives you access to more than 100 games to play on your Xbox One for one monthly fee. And, unlike PlayStation Now, it isn't a cloud service so you don't have to rely on your own broadband speeds to play. Well, not to stream anyway, because you'll still need to download the games. However, once downloaded, you have complete access to a game as long as you continue to pay the monthly fee. You can even use some of the included games on a Windows 10 PC, through Xbox Play Anywhere. It's only a handful at present, but the cross-platform games list is expanding all the time. We've put together a handy guide on Xbox Game Pass, with details such as price, availability and the games currently on the platform. Hopefully it will give you everything you need to know about it.
Xbox Game Pass reduced from £7.99 to £1.49 - see this deal here
