That’s right. You heard it. Same as title. Great deal for a month. Available on the GamePass store of the Xbox One. Just purchased last night myself and pre-loaded and played Gears 5 early.

You’re welcome.

I can't even install this bitch right now. Must be getting choked on all those $1/free Game Pass subs.

I've bought 1 month for $1 for 5 months now for Gamepass on PC. xD Will probably do it again if I can.

@BenjaminBanklin: they must. That sucks haha.

Maybe restart and try it again, the oldest trick in the book

If you own an XB1 and don't have Gamepass by now, you're doing it wrong imo.

Game pass is a great idea. I'm not a subscriber because I do very little gaming anymore, but it is a great deal from the trial period I had used.

Some people prefer to own their games though. I honestly would rather just get a digital copy of gears for example.

Yeah I guess... but for the price of buying a copy of Gears outright, you can almost get a year subscription to Gamepass. Then you get access to all the other games too.

Anyway, each to their own.

Same with PC for Ultimate. Actually Ultimate on Xbox I think you get Gold with it as well.

I absolutely don't understand anyone playing games on PC or Xbox not jumping on the many deals giving Gamepass away for next to nothing. If all you use it for is to play lots of big games for next to nothing to decide if you want to buy a physical version or not that alone is a fantastic deal.

Yeah, agreed.

Plus there is a sh*t-tonne of indies on there too.

I get that that's a crazy deal - but the value is really only there if you actually want to spend time in a Gears of War game... Or whatever other AAA schlock comes with gamepass.

Good deal for those who want this off course, but not a good use of my time, even if it's basically free

Awesome deal for sure but I just love having a physical game collection too much. I’d rather just pay for my games once and be able to play them whenever I want to instead of continually paying a subscription fee to have access to them plus the games will rotate in and out so if a game leaves then I’ll have to buy it anyway if I want to keep playing it.

@xantufrog: True, but the schlock is pretty good assuming you don't own any of the games. I mean, Devil May Cry 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Metro Exodus. It's nice getting things like Minecraft, Hello Neighbor and Goat Simulator cause its what kids love to play and don't have to buy games they never play.

I know its nice getting sweet games, some I hate I bought already, but I kind of like playing the new games that come I would like to try but would never pay for. So although not bangers, I really love getting Vampyr, Void Bastards, and Shenmue 1. If I didn't already beat others, I'd love them to.

Honestly, I like many, love it mostly for indies, cause so many come, and hard to pick, they are bread and butter to make sure I get my $15 a month. I've really liked getting, Outer Wilds, Human Fall Flat, Yoku Island Express, etc. Everything mentioned I've legit played and mostly beat, unlike some frauds who spout off.

Sorry man but I disagree, this is just MS way of getting people used to digital only.

I will stick with purchasing AND owning my games thanks :)

@xantufrog: It's incredible value, especially with PC gamepass included. I'm struggling to find enough time to play all the games, but I'm half way through Gears 5 on x1x, while guiding Chelsea to the league in FM19 on pc while the cutscenes are on.

@X_CAPCOM_X: You could subscribe to Gamepass for a year and buy a discounted digital copy of gears from GP, for less than a digital copy alone from the store.

Exactly, there always has to be options as just one is a very, very bad idea.

I am a digital lover now, so this pretty much aims to me. Sorry Daily, but doing all digital this gen is just so much easier for me personally. Love it but I'm still against Streaming.

I was thinking of getting it just to play through Blair Witch. Most of the games I have, but they do have some good ones on there.

Well I am severely disappointed...after all last night when Xbox Live was done and I couldn’t play, to now I’m in the beginning of act II and there’s a gamebreaking glitch that is stopping me from progressing forward. Super lame. Poked around on the Internet and I guess I’m not the only one.

Those are low settings I hope.

Anyway, I got the Game Pass for PC (Beta) for a dollar. Gonna see if I can download Gears 5 when I get home.

Yeah I grabbed that ultimate offer, only to play GeoW5 a little early. Won't continue the sub after two months because I don't game on PC (yet).

On Experienced (hardcore) this is a challenge and I love it.

Jack being able to support in multiple ways is a great new gameplay addition to it.
