Microsoft is now letting even more people test the Xbox Game Pass service before its public rollout later this year. A new wave of invitations for Preview members, the third overall, is now underway.

Players who are in the Preview program can join the Xbox Game Pass Alpha Preview by launching the Xbox Insider Hub and selecting Xbox Game pass Alpha Preview. The new wave of invitations were delivered by Xbox Live Messages; one was sent to GameSpot.

Xbox Game Pass, which was announced in February, is a Netflix-like service that provides subscribers with access to a catalog of 100 games (see all the confirmed titles here). Some games could drop out of the library, based on what third-party publishers want, but Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said people can subscribe with confidence.

Xbox Game Pass is expected to launch for all Xbox One owners this Spring, though a date has not been announced. Considering a new wave of alpha invitations is available now, it's clear that the testing process has not yet finished.
