In a revolutionary step for serious gamers of the Xbox console, it is finally possible to have access to an entire library of #Games via subscription. Xbox released the Game Pass, a monthly subscription that allows gamers to play over 100 games from the comfort of their home. However, only Xbox Live Gold Members have access to the 14-day free trial, which they are offering as a special deal for the more expensive membership subscription. Everyone else can start their 14-day trial period on June 1, 2017. Either way, players will be able to try a plethora games without paying the full price up front, and maybe even find a new gem hidden in the archives.

Game Pass: what now?

In short, this is a digital gaming subscription that is way more advanced than renting games. The catalog features a combination of over 100 Xbox One games and backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games. Subscriptions are $9.99 per month, which is a fraction of the price of a single video game, and are available on the Xbox website. What's more, the Xbox company will be releasing new additions to the catalog every month, so players will always have something new to check out and try. Any games that you want to keep in your library permanently can still be purchased, but at a discounted price, so you can play it for as many months or years as you desire.

Quality games and big names

A gaming subscription service is certainly nothing new, but a common complaint in the past was that only games that nobody wanted to play would be made available.

With the Xbox #Game Pass, it features a broad range of games that can be played on Xbox One or the Xbox One S. Try out well-known blockbusters like "Halo 5: Guardians" and "Payday 2." Other popular games come from the sports and family-friendly genre, such as "NBA 2K16," "LEGO Batman," and "Banjo-Kazooie." Old-school players will be drawn to the retro and classic games like "Pac-Man Championship" and "Mega Man Legacy Collection." Some of the most popular first and third person shooters of all-time have even been made available, like the "Bioshock" franchise, "Borderlands," and more.

While this pass might not be for everyone, if you are the kind of person that purchases at least one new game every few months, this service will probably save you money, in return for a massive amount of games to choose from. Either way, there is no reason not to take advantage of the free trial and see if any games make this service worth it. #XBoxOne
