    Like Netflix, you cancel the next renewal and can play until that date.

    When your subscription runs out you can keep the Xbox app and games installed they just won’t launch. Means you can re sub and pick up from where you were.

    they just added deep rock galactic, overwhelmingly positive on steam. Great game, especially co-op with mates.

    Still waiting for EA Play to come to PC.

    One thing that's annoying is that they haven't rolled all of Bethesda's back catalogue into any of the microsoft ecosystem. You can get just about everything on Gamepass or the windows store, except Doom (2016).

    No dates have been given - was supposed to be Dec 15th, but delayed, apparently due to COVID...... seems like such a bullshit excuse. Anyway, the only official dates available now at "coming 2021" and they haven't given any updates since

    I subscribed a couple of weeks ago and EA Play is now a part of the $11/month sub price. Well worth it for me, with the NFS series, Forza, Crysis series (including the remaster), Halo series and Minecraft W10 and Java (installed but not yet available).

    Gamepass PC is currently 3 months for $1 if you don't have an active subscription. Subbed myself to play FH5 when it releases, will probably squeeze in a few other titles in that 3 months too.

    This one is high on my and my daughter’s list, which is scary because she’s just learning to drive.

    The game pass? Na plenty of great stuff on the pass. But fh5 is one title that will help it get alot more.

    Issue is its just the base game so I will upgrade for $50 to get the dlc and VIP.

    I'm still earning enough points each month from MS Rewards to cover the GPU sub, I purchased the FH5 deluxe upgrade with points as well. Good times.

    Dlc's have been some of the highlights, blizzard mountain (fh3) and fortune Island (Fh4) were great.. Lego was bit meh.. My son loved it though.

    IMHO DLC is ruining games. Nobody is doing anything new anymore, just releasing DLC for 3 year old games so they can keep the price jacked up.

    … and remasters - sorry I know that’ll ruffle a few feathers but just do something we haven’t seen before please.

    Nah I actually disagree with that one :D Some of the remasters I've seen have been amazing.

    Not for full price though, especially if you own the original (looking at Origin with NFS HP and Crysis there as an example).
