The Game Pass is a subscription service that Microsoft provides for $10 a month. Members can play hundreds of well-known and fan-favorite titles as they like. There is also an Ultimate Game Pass that offers the service for both console and PC. First-time subscribers will get the first month at $1. As of January 2021, the subscription service boasts 18 million members.
