| 25 January, 2018, 00:59

Whether Xbox One exclusives will be permanently available remains to be seen, but it's good to know that this is at least Microsoft's intention with its Xbox Game Pass.

Until now, the Game Pass service has been home to more than 100 games - but all of which were established and long since released Xbox games.

Microsoft's Game Pass launched in June a year ago and is available to Indian users for a price of Rs 699 a month.

The team at Xbox also stated that this will also be the case for upcoming releases that have yet to be announced by Microsoft Studios, including any future installments to the Forza Motorsport franchise.


Microsoft has also announced a new subscription offer for Xbox Game Pass. GameStop and other retailers will start offering six-month Xbox Game Pass subscription cards, starting March 20.

Today, January 23, Microsoft launched the Xbox One X in India, which is presently the most powerful gaming console in the world. Microsoft's $9.99 a month service will also include launch-day accessibility of future titles Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2, the announcement video revealed. Xbox Game Pass follows the lead of movie and TV streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, which have their own exclusive offerings available to anyone who pays a monthly fee.

"We firmly believe Xbox Game Pass will be a catalyst to create new opportunities for game developers and publishers to innovate in the way games are developed and delivered, leading to entirely new ways to play". The new Xbox One X is going to be available from Tuesday itself from Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Landmark, and Microsoft India stores, alongside the speciality gaming stories across the country.
