In terms of video games, Microsoft would like to take the rank that Netflix has earned in streaming films and series. A significant expansion of the Xbox Game Pass was unveiled at E3.
Maybe the Xbox exclusives aren’t (yet?) Enough to keep up with the PlayStation, but Microsoft just picked another race and took the lead there. In the background, Microsoft has been working on Xbox Game Pass and the video game subscription offer for years. Most recently with the purchase of Bethesda, the portfolio of Xbox and PC games was significantly increased.
At E3, Microsaft showed an impressive list of new releases, all of which will be available in the Game Pass from release. Since yesterday (June 13th) the following games are already included in the subscription:

Everything in one subscription
The Xbox Game Pass is available in three variants. You can find all the important information on the official website. Here are the key data: For 10 euros per month you can get a subscription for either the PC or the Xbox Series X / S or Xbox One. The PC version also includes EA Play, the game subscription from Electronic Arts.
If you want everything together, go for Game Pass Ultimate for 13 euros a month. There you can get the Game Pass for PC, console and Android, as well as EA Play and Xbox Live Gold (required subscription for most of the multiplayer functions of Xbox games). As with any subscription model, you do not own the games, if Microsoft should delete them from the offer, you can of course no longer use them.
