    "Moving forward, we plan to release all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release. This means that when Sea of Thieves launches on March 20, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass to all members.

    This plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch."

    That's interesting. Maybe not a good fit for me, but I could see a lot of people digging it.

    Pretty cool. I only want State of Decay though.

    This also leaks to "Microsoft play anywhere" so the games that have that would be free on your PC as well.

    Interesting. That might convince me to pick this up and give it a try.

    I found a deal that is $5/month for Game Pass for Gold members--is it worth it? There are a ton of games for it and some are pretty good (plus the new exclusive releases added). Is this worth it?

    $60 a year for a massive library of games isn't bad if youll play them. Personally, I have a backlog of games already and own a lot of the games from the games with gold program so it doesn't entice me much.

    That's my issue right now. But there are some cool looking indy games and some good 360 games that look worth it.

    $5 for a month trial doesn't seem bad
