Halo 5 is the only thing I've seen in the trail that I'd be interested in. But I've a few games on my plate at the moment so I'll hold off for now. Does the trial have an expiry date? As in is it only being offered for a limited time ?

Nice. Yeah, there are plenty of games on Xbox Game Pass that i haven't played either. $10 a month or whatever it is doesn't sound that bad. Part of me does feel like it should be part of Gold sub though if it's mostly older games.

This is a great deal that MS can throw in for those who are getting an xbox one s. Give them a $30 value for 3 months with the system and MOM and DAD can see how easy it is to have so many games for jr. to play for $10!

I've been playing Double Dragon Neon ( Which would have been perfect with online co-op:smash:), Payday 2 and Shantae and the Pirate's curse. Can't really dive deep into any more or I'll have to much to play. To my knowledge the trial is NOT for a limited time. I think kinda like netflix and hulu give you a free trial before you buy, this is here to stay.

I sort of agree with you but with the volume of games offered, if they got rid of games with gold and substituted this in its place, I'd have no issue.

Starting on July 1, even more great games are coming to Xbox Game Pass for you to enjoy. And don’t forget, if you haven’t tried Xbox Game Pass yet, you can play free for 14 days.

Dead Island Definitive Edition
First up, we have Dead Island Definitive Edition, one of the quintessential zombie games. In Dead Island, four survivors awake in a hospital, only to find themselves surrounded by an infestation of zombies. You get it all with Dead Island — a large open world to explore, multiple playable characters, a great story arc with tons of side missions, an extensive crafting system and thousands of zombies to fight. In short, Dead Island is a must-play this month, solo or with your friends. How long can you survive?

Resident Evil 6
Co-headlining July’s new releases into Xbox Game Pass is Resident Evil 6. More of a third-person shooter than its survival-horror roots, Resident Evil 6 is an incredibly ambitious effort from Capcom, delivering the ability to go solo or partner up in co-op for four different-but-integrated campaigns spanning seven different key characters. Where other Resident Evil games focused on a more crawling pace, confined spaces, and scarce resources (especially ammunition), Resident Evil 6 delivers the opportunity to create blazes of glory across a series of intense shootouts, vehicle chases, and boss fights.

We also highly recommend checking out the latest installment in the franchise, Resident Evil 7, which returns Resident Evil to its roots in one of the best true survival-horror games to release in recent memory, available today here in the Xbox Store.

F1 2015
If you enjoy racing, you’ll be thrilled to hear that F1 2015 is joining Xbox Game Pass in July. F1 2015, one of the best installments in the long-running franchise from Codemasters, offers a gripping simulation of the Formula One racing experience. Finding the right level of finesse is key to finishing in the winner’s circle, and in F1 2015 you can hone your driving skills against challenging AI competition before competing with friends.

The Flame in the Flood
We are really excited for the Xbox Game Pass community to check out The Flame in the Flood, one of the best single-player experiences of 2016. Guide Scout and her faithful pooch Aesop downriver to find resources, safety, and hope in this post-apocalyptic tale of survival (spoiler alert: there was a huge flood). Navigate your raft from island to island as your adventure for a brighter tomorrow unfolds.

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
In the world of high-octane action platformers, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition ranks among the very best. Fluid and fast-paced with wonderfully unique, Mexican-inspired art and level design, Guacamelee delivers tons of fun with a unique flair that you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else. You play as Juan, a humble farmer, tasked with defeating countless enemies on a quest to rescue El Presidente’s kidnapped daughter. Play on your own or join forces with family and friends to defeat each boss, conquer each level, and save the day in this awesome game from Drinkbox Studios.

Bard’s Gold
Guacamelee’s retro brother from another mother, Bard’s Gold, is a super fun 2D platformer with strong RPG elements and a visual style that harkens back to the days of 8-bit gaming yore, which is pretty awesome if you’re a retro gaming fan (or a child of the 80s, like many of us!). Diverse dungeon-focused level design is paired with progressively challenging gameplay (and a bunch of achievements) to create a really fun and engaging experience. Each level has its own surprises and secrets, so explore the nuances and clever design elements Bard’s Gold has to offer. It will be time well spent!

Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine
One of our favorite hidden gems from Xbox 360, Majesco’s award-winning Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine is a top-down stealth action strategy game with the team-based objective of successfully pulling off heists and robberies. Play through the solo campaign and unlock four additional characters (eight total in the game) so you and your friends can each find the right character and special skill to pull off each heist in multiplayer. Don’t get caught!

If you get MS Rewards from Bing or elsewhere, a 12 month sub is 29000 points, which is essentially the same as a little more than $30 of gift cards (or the price of 12 months of live via rewards, which is in itself a pretty solid deal).

Anyone in the world even subscribe?
i just signed up over the weekend, enticed by the silly "Win a TV" contest advert on the Xbox dashboard. I'm really enjoying it, playing a mix of new and old games. Never got around to Mad Max before, and it's really good! And doing State of Decay again. Great game only brought down by so-so graphics, but it seems like the frame rate took a big hit on the Xbox One (or was it that bad on the 360 as well, can't remember). 14 free days, and I'll probably subscribe on a month-to-month basis, depending on what gets added.

When we launched Xbox Game Pass in June 2017, we knew we wanted to craft a service with gamers in mind. That meant a diverse, expanding library of over 100 games and counting, matched with one monthly price and unlimited access to download and play full-fidelity experiences.

We’ve been blown away by the incredible response. Following launch, we heard from fans around the world who wanted Xbox Game Pass in their country. In September, we expanded globally and Xbox Game Pass is now available to fans in 40 countries. We’ve also continued to expand the catalog with new games added to the Xbox Game Pass library every month, so there is always something new to play.

We know our fans value having a variety of games to play at a low monthly price. We’ve also heard from fans that the ability to play new blockbuster games in Xbox Game Pass is important. So we’ve continued to explore new ideas to make this possible.

Today, we’re excited to announce plans for a major expansion to Xbox Game Pass that underscores our commitment to deliver our fans the ultimate gaming subscription service.


Moving forward, we plan to release all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release. This means that when Sea of Thieves launches on March 20, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass to all members.


This plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch.


Our fans have also asked for more choice in the subscription offerings available for Xbox Game Pass. As part of today’s library expansion, we are also pleased to announce that we are working closely with our retail partners, such as GameStop, to offer a 6-month Xbox Game Pass subscription card for those fans who look for a variety of ways to purchase and enjoy new games and services. The 6-month Xbox Game Pass subscription card will be available at select retail partners for $59.99 beginning March 20. By working closely with retail partners, Xbox Game Pass will have valuable ambassadors in popular destinations for gamers to discover new and exciting games and enjoy community.

With the addition of more great games, new blockbuster releases and a new subscription offer, we are giving fans more choice and value in how they discover and enjoy games – purchase games for their permanent library or play through Xbox Game Pass for one low price.

We’ve only scratched the surface of the opportunity this new model brings to the industry and what we can deliver to our fans. We firmly believe Xbox Game Pass will be a catalyst to create new opportunities for game developers and publishers to innovate in the way games are developed and delivered, leading to entirely new ways to play.

We’re truly humbled by the incredible response we’ve received to date for Xbox Game Pass, and we look forward to offering an unprecedented choice and value with Xbox Game Pass this spring and beyond.
