Gaming fans are in for a sweet surprise as Xbox has launched a new service called “Xbox Game Pass” with unlimited access to over 100’s of games on its platform with a monthly subscription fee of Rs 699. The list includes fan-favourite hardcore games like Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, LEGO Batman etc. This service will be available from June in all the 31 markets around the globe to consumers with Live Accounts.
Before availing the paid service, users can experience a 14-day free trial so as to make up their minds. The gamescan be downloaded on the consoles directly and can be used to play online or offline, without any streaming or connectivity issues that once bothered the gamers before.
Users can also buy their favourite games with additional discounts such as 10 percent on Xbox one, plus they can also avail a season pass for any game too. Microsoft had earlier tested this feature in its beta/insider program.This service is being tipped on the lines of Playstation Now, which also allows users to play subscription based games at a monthly fee of $19.99 as compared to Xbox’s $9.99, also Playstation Now does not allows you to buy games, thereby making Xbox Game Pass a better bet.
