    A new Xbox One killer release looks ready for launch
    While Microsoft’s Project Scorpio is set to be the most powerful console ever created when launched, normal Xbox One owners don’t have to worry about missing out on this new feature.

    The Xbox Game Pass was announced earlier this year and is a new service that will allow fans to choose between a 100 games, Netflix style.

    Subscribers get unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility games for £7.99 a month.

    This includes the likes of Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Mad Max, Terraria and Fable 3.

    It’s been in the alpha testing phase as part of the Insider Program which now looks to be moving toward the final launch version.

    “Thank you for participating in the Xbox Game Pass Alpha Preview,” an Xbox message reads.

    “Your feedback has been invaluable and will make the service better for all gamers….We’re getting close to launch and Xbox Game Pass will be available for all gamers later this Spring.”

    The Alpha phase wraps up on April 28, meaning that Xbox One’s next killer release may be launching as soon as May.

    The Xbox Game Pass will not be without its rivals, with PlayStation Now and EA Access both available for those willing to spend the cash.

    The Nvidia Shield is another device that has access to Geforce Now, another rival streaming service that is getting a major revamp later this year.

    As an added bonus, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will receive access to the new Xbox Game Pass service before it launches, although no established release date has been revealed.

    “One of the best things about Xbox Game Pass is that you can discover and download the full titles directly on your Xbox One,” reads a Microsoft blog post.

    “That means continuous, full-fidelity gameplay without having to worry about streaming, bandwidth or connectivity issues.

    “In addition, all Xbox One games in the catalog – and related add-ons – will be available to purchase at an exclusive discount for Xbox Game Pass members, so you can make the games you love part of your permanent library to play whenever you want.

    “Every month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, giving you a constantly updating library of games. Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play.”
