Microsoft have announced Xbox Game Pass – a Netflix-like subscription service that will offer over 100 free games for £7.99 a month.

It will be a download subscription, not a streaming service like Playstation Now, allowing subscribers to download games directly to their system and play them as if they were purchased digitally.

They will then be able to purchase the games in the catalog at a discount (20% off games, 10% off add-ons,) adding them permanently to their Xbox library.

Games will include Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, Saints Row 4, Lego Batman and new games will be added each month.

Xbox Game Pass will start rolling out today to select members of the Xbox Insider program today, with plans to launch exclusively for Xbox Live Gold subscribers before eventually going live for all Xbox One owners later this spring.
