Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service from Microsoft that gives you access to over 200 games a month for $10. There are a couple of options when it comes to subscribing. You can either get Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, or bundle Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Live Gold for $15 with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
A lot of critically-acclaimed games are joining the service in the coming week or two. You can take a look at the complete list below. I would recommend checking out Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMix, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, No Man's Sky, and The Witcher: Thronebreaker.
- Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled (Xbox One and PC) on June 18
