Microsoft has announced a variety of changes coming to Xbox Game Pass – it's Netflix-style subscription service for games. The service currently provides access to over 100 titles and future first-party releases for a flat monthly fee – with more on the way following its E3 2018 press conference.
The biggest new feature coming to Xbox Game Pass is "FastStart" – a new system designed to deliver games to players faster than before. Using machine learning, the feature learns how gamers play titles to streamline the download process and reduce waiting times. Microsoft states the feature currently cuts download times in half, with its algorithm set to improve over time. Microsoft is set to debut FastStart later this month to Xbox Insiders with the June update.
Xbox Game Pass is also getting several new titles today – Tom Clancy's The Division, Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls Online. Microsoft also expanding its launch day offerings, with Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Ashen and Phoenix Point all set to hit the service at launch.
