Microsoft announced the Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup today, and also shared the Xbox Game Pass additions for October 2018.
Forza Horizon 4 here I come
If I pay for a month of game pass can I play Forza horizon 4 on my pc with it? I have an Xbox one but it's in my son's room so I can never really use it.
Yeah, it’s a game pass play anywhere title.
Cool I wasn't sure if play anywhere worked with game pass. Thanks. Might give it a try then. Really liked 2 but never played 3 because guy at work out me off talking about how you had to make your own events. Hope this one isn't like that.
The guy at work is an idiot. That simply wasn't true and you missed the greatest racer ever made.
FH4 via Game Pass on PC. That's exactly how I'm going to play. Enjoy!
This is mental. Surely MS are throwing away sales by the thousands, 7 months of game pass is about the retail price.
They can't possibly recouperate the money with this service. I get to play Forza Horizon 4 on my PC all month for £1. Amazing.
Im sure Microsoft have crunched the numbers and decided it makes financial sense.
I wouldn't worry about Microsoft. I think they know how to make a profit.
Not caring about how much a mega-corp makes/doesn't make on a product. It is a great deal to me.
I don't care about ms one bit, it just boggles my mind, why pay £50 for this game when you can just pay a few pounds and be done with it in a couple of months
It is actually very smart. The majority of fans who want to own the game will most likely still buy it. People like myself who would never have purchased it will instead get gamepass. Plus MS are focussed on the bigger picture. For example if they can get gamepass subscribers to reach just 6 million that is equivalent to selling 1 million games per month. On the other hand if they continue this to xbox 2 and get 20-30 million subscribers it would be the equivelant of them selling 3-4 million copies per month. not to mention their plan of offering a streaming type service on other devices. Subscribers could easily be in the 10's of millions with this model. They are in it for the long haul. Not short term. Just look at the billions Netflix spends on content and their profit.
Gamepass is a great service, but when it comes to FH4 I'm paying for keeps! Ultimate Edition all the way!
Ultimate Edition is pre-loaded and ready to go! I feel ya fellow gamer...
I strongly recommend anybody that hasn't already played metro give it a try, forza 4 is obviously amazing, I'm looking forward to playing wolfenstein as I have only played the sequel. split second also a really fun racer but I have it from a previous games with gold month
