Xbox Game Pass is certainly one of the best things that has happened to gaming recently. The idea for a subscription for access to dozens of games may not be particularly innovative or new, but Microsoft has done a particularly good job of it. First of all, it provides a great variety of games from a number of studios, and it is not limited to just a few flagship brands. Therefore each month, we can count on new games to check – both new and older.
What's more, if you choose the PC service or the Ultimate version that offers all the possibilities, we also get access to the Electronic Arts' portfolio in its EA Play subscription. The main disadvantage of Game Pass, however, is the temporary access to many of the games available in the plan. From time to time, selected productions disappear from the offer, so paying a subscription for many months in advance is not a guarantee that we will always have access to our favorite game (except for Microsoft's games developed by Xbox Games Studios).
The richness of Xbox Game Pass means that when you run it for the first time, you can have some trouble choosing the game to install and test. Therefore, we present to you the best games available in the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. However, take into account that some of them may only be available on PC, while others, only on Xbox. Please refer the text boxes to find out where the game is compatible with your system.
Two new productions made it onto the list. One of them completely new, and the other is a game released some time ago that only recently made its way to Xbox Game Pass. The two additions, i.e. Hi-Fi Rush and Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, replaced games that were removed from the service, namely The Hitman Trilogy and What Remains of Edith Finch. The text was updated by Matt Lugowik.
