At Xbox, we put gamers at the center of everything we do and remain committed to giving you the freedom to play the games you want, with the friends you want, on the devices you want. This year is shaping up to be an exciting one for gamers. As we prepare to launch Project Scorpio this holiday, bringing the most powerful console ever made to the Xbox One family of devices, we continue to make platform improvements to connect the growing community of players on Xbox Live and add to a robust and diverse portfolio of games across Xbox One and Windows 10.

Today, we’re continuing our commitment to give you more options to diversify and expand your library of games with Xbox Game Pass, a new gaming subscription service coming later this spring. Xbox Game Pass gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games – all for $9.99 per month.

With great games from top industry publishers such as 2K, 505 Games, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, SEGA, SNK CORPORATION, THQ Nordic GmbH, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft Studios, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and you will always find something exciting to play across a variety of genres. Some of the fan favorite titles coming to Xbox Game Pass when it launches to the broader Xbox community in late spring include, Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II.

One of the best things about Xbox Game Pass is that you can discover and download the full titles directly on your Xbox One. That means continuous, full-fidelity gameplay without having to worry about streaming, bandwidth or connectivity issues. In addition, all Xbox One games in the catalog – and related add-ons – will be available to purchase at an exclusive discount for Xbox Game Pass members, so you can make the games you love part of your permanent library to play whenever you want. Every month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, giving you a constantly updating library of games. Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play.

It’s important to us that Xbox Game Pass provides an enjoyable and seamless experience. Before the program rolls out to the broader community later this spring, we’ll be testing Xbox Game Pass with select members of the Xbox Insider Program in the Alpha Preview ring, starting today with a very limited number of titles. The titles that are available in Preview are just a small glimpse at the expansive catalog of games that will be available when Xbox Game Pass launches late spring. Xbox Live Gold members will also be receiving exclusive access to Xbox Game Pass prior to the program launching to the broader community. We’ll have more details on timing closer to launch.

We hope you enjoy Xbox Game Pass and all that it has to offer. We’re looking forward to hearing the feedback from the gamers in the Xbox Insider Program and then from the rest of the Xbox community when it’s broadly available later this spring. Your feedback will make this program better for all gamers.

Thank you for your continued passion and support of Xbox.

I got halfway through and got a bit bored if the sameness if it, but I did really enjoy it, especially the nemesis system. 

I started to play it but quickly stopped. 

I'm not a fan of Lord of the Rings so the world it's set in holds no interest to me. 

The fighting system is a tweaked version of the Batman Arkham games and I hadn't long finished playing Arkham Knight and so felt like I was playing the same game again so just moved onto something else.

Agreed that it did feel a bit "samey" to Arkham series.  However, i did like those games.  I felt that with the SofM game, that if you mixed up main quest with side quest it got better.  If you just did nothing but side quests for a while, it got boring.  

 

Suppose that's the same as the Batman games too

I will wait to get Horizon and Mass Effect for the autumn because soon its spring and summer so time will be limited.

I'm late to the party but I picked up my first souls game, bloodborne being it and what a game it was - completed the whole game inlcuding all the chalices and the last "true" boss and its one of the best games I've played, very rewarding.

 

Dark Souls 3 is next on my list especially with the new ringed city becoming available soon.

Also still waiting for official WoW vanilla servers but thats just a dream, would love to play that game again casually this time - luckily I am not 16 again.

COD came yesterday. Really fast delivery from Simply Games.

Took a while to install as you need 130gig free and MW Remastered is just shy of 60gig. Won't bother installing Infinite Warefare as I hate the futuristic rubbish.

Gameplay is addictive as I remember and looks great on the PS4, I can see me spending endless hours on multiplayer with it.

I was exactly the same as you mate but I believe one of the main developments they're trying to make is to make it less repetitive.

 

Which does make me pretty excited for it.
