This morning, Xbox’s Phil Spencer announced a new EA Access-style subscription service called the Xbox Game Pass that will offer subscribers access to a rotating catalogue of games every month.
Once the Game Pass launches this spring, it will include 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games and will cost £7.99/$9.99 a month. Each month, new games will be added and removed from the service’s library.
Spencer confirmed that SEGA, among other developers, like 2K, 505 Games, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, SNK, THQ Nordic and Warner Bros. will offer their games in the Game Pass.
If subscribers choose to cancel the service but still want to continue playing a game, they will be able to purchase it at a discount, Spencer declared. He also noted that unlike the PlayStation Now service, users will download the games directly to their system, so there won’t be a need to stream them.
Select Xbox Insider Program members in the Alpha Preview will have access to the service beginning today.
Spencer didn’t mention exactly which SEGA games will be added to the service, but which ones would get you interested enough to give it a try? Perhaps SEGA could be really cool and bring over Phantasy Star Universe, eh?
