Recently, Microsoft announced a number of new improvements to Xbox Game Pass. Aside from the general availability of the Xbox Game Pass application, the company unveiled some upcoming additions to the catalog. Some blockbusters and smaller experiences are joining the service very soon.
Yesterday during The Game Awards 2018, the company announced that Ashen, Below, and Kingdom: Two Crowns would be joining the service in December. However, there are even more amazing experiences on the way apart from the already-announced Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice for December 17 and Ori and the Blind Forest for December 20.
Mortal Kombat X
Mortal Kombat X is a gory and thrilling fighting game from the legendary franchise coming to Xbox Game Pass today.
Pro Evolution Soccer 19
Pro Evolution Soccer 19 is a soccer simulator from Konami which many gamers prefer nowadays. It's joining the service on December 13.
Shadow Warrior 2
Shadow Warrior 2 is a first-person action game which continues the legacy of the franchise from yesteryear. It's coming to on December 20.
Spintires: Mudrunner is an off-road racing game which involve extreme weather conditions. It's launching on Xbox Game Pass on December 13 as well.
Since the service launched, many gamers have been asking Microsoft how many subscribers it has. While usually the company doesn't comment on sales figures, during an interview between Head of Xbox Phil Spencer and LevelUp, he revealed a general count. There are "millions of subscribers" today.
It's great to see that Xbox Game Pass is doing so well. Hopefully the trend will continue in the future as more high-profile titles join the service. Do you pay $9.99 a month for Xbox Game Pass? Let us know.

Game-Pass is the gift that keeps on giving
Can't agree more.
I would just call it a renting service. Nothing is really given because 1) you're paying and 2) it's only renting.
I got game pass as soon as they said first party games were added on day one. Also, I have never payed full price. They have deals going all the time. I have probably averaged paying $5 a month. You only need 2 full price games a year to make it worthwhile. I was already planning on buying gears 5 and crackdown depending on reviews. All the other games from 2019 are icing on the cake.
I'll take PES 2019. Cheers.
I actually just got Game Pass using the free trial, been playing Ashen and Ruiner with it. Although I was under the impression Hellblade was on there, but it's not listed on the Xbox as a Game Pass title, oh well. Shadow Warrior 2 will be worth it when it's released and I'll jump in FH4 as well. I'm going to snap up the month for $1 while it's still available as well.
