Last month, Microsoft announced Xbox Game Pass – a new subscription-based service for game distribution on Xbox One. Despite availability still being limited to a small pool of Xbox Preview members, four new games have already been added to the service.

For those with access to Xbox Game Pass, it now appears that four of 2K Games' biggest classics are now available to download. The remastered versions of both BioShock and BioShock 2 have been added to the program, taken from the release of BioShock: The Collection. Strangely, Xbox Game Pass users will have to make do with the Xbox 360 version of BioShock Infinite via backward compatibility, despite a remastered version having released late last year. Borderlands is also playable in its original Xbox 360 form.

We can likely expect more titles to arrive in the coming months, to reach the total of 100 titles promised by Microsoft for the service's public rollout.

To access the current library of Xbox Game Pass titles, you'll need to be running the latest Xbox Preview Alpha ring build and enroll yourself in the limited test catalog. However, being restricted to only a certain subset of active Xbox Preview members, getting access currently proves to be quite the challenge.
