Microsoft has announced the next wave of titles headed to Xbox Game Pass, it's Netflix-style subscription service for Xbox One games. For September 2018, 10 new Xbox One games will be available under the $9.99 flat monthly fee (opens in new tab), including previous first-party releases like Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Quantum Break. As detailed on Xbox Wire (opens in new tab), each of these games will be available via the subscription on September 1.

Alongside the previously-announced addition of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Quantum Break, Onrush, Aven Colony, Shadow Warrior and Sky Force Reloaded are all headed to the service. Other ID@Xbox games will also be available, including Manual Samuel, Snake Pass, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, and InnerSpace.

One of this month's top picks is Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which bundles together the first four mainline games into a single package. Alongside being newly-enhanced for Xbox One X, the game's latest update brings major improvements to gameplay and stability. Quantum Break also can't be missed, which offers a unique third-person shooter adventure, bending time in unthinkable ways.

If you're yet to check out Xbox Game Pass, subscriptions can be picked up at the online Microsoft Store. For $9.99 a month (opens in new tab), subscribers can access a rotating library of over 100 titles, spanning Xbox One, Xbox 360, and original Xbox.

  • I own both titles and both are awesome. If you haven't yet played Quantum Break, you definitely should. Great story, great mechanics, and that ending! OMG!
  • If it had a better cover system, like maybe Gears, it really would have been perfect. My only complaint about the game.
  • I see a lot of people saying that about this game but I think the idea is to make it a free flowing game where you don't duck and cover but use your powers but people try to duck and cover on it more than not.
  • Yeah, if you are predominantly in cover in QB, you aren't playing the game correctly.
  • Wow great line up!
  • Finally! Now it is worth paying for the service
  • Always the same question to make: Which of these (if any) is Play Anywhere? I hope it's not Quantum Break because I already have it. But please tell me some of these games are for PC too.
  • Quantum Break was pre Play Anywhere, it had its own method of doing that though.
