Microsoft yesterday announced its new Game Pass service for Xbox One, a subscription to the Netflix style that allows us to access games unlimited. Before its arrival, many users were feared that it supposed the end of Games with Gold, the other service that gives us games in Xbox One and 360. Today Microsoft explains that this service is not in danger.
Microsoft has been clear: both services will not compete with each other, because they are different and offer different benefits. “Games with Gold and Xbox Game Pass are two different services with unique benefits,” a representative told Kotaku.
“Games with Gold is a specific add-on to Xbox Live Gold members, which offers players two to four free games each month for their enjoyment. Xbox Game Pass is a service designed on an unlimited access subscription with games 360 and Xbox One. Xbox Live Gold is not necessary to enjoy this feature, but to play online those Game Pass titles that have multiplayer among their options, “he explained.
This same representative has confirmed that the catalog will be updated month by month, and that from time to time, there will be titles that disappear from the digital bookstore, something similar to what services like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video do in their respective catalogs .
We have made a special that will help you to know more about this promising Netflix of Microsoft video games. Xbox Game Pass will allow us to enjoy games like Halo 5: Guardians, Banjo-Kazooie, Gears of War: Judgment, Sunset Overdrive, Dark Void, WWE 2K16 or Borderlands – among others – which will be downloaded to our hard drive for a monthly payment . Multiple companies have already confirmed their presence, increasing the initial catalog to more than 100 titles.
