Halo 5 is going to be 4K I reckon, they said they'll talk about it more at gamescom...

Dead Rising 3 and Dirt Rally seems pretty generous. Still nothing to tempt me into using my trial though... yet.

I do think this is a good thing if you just bought a One as you get loads to play. They should lay off too many Games with Gold Alumni though

Are they locked out of EA stuff because of Access?

Probably. I'm all for these subscription services though, for someone who plays a lot of games like me they're ideal. The only reason I'm not in on Game Pass is the relatively high price. If, say, Ubisoft did one for £20 a year I'd be all over it.

DR3 is good and Dirt Rally is great (and also relatively recent). It's becoming an increasingly tempting value proposition for me. May be swayed when I upgrade to One X.

I'm tempted by this but I kind of have enough to play for now, if it was £5 I would probably go for it, but £8 is a little much with all the other subs I have for things it all adds up pretty quick.

The major plus I've had with Game Pass is that 2 of my mates have it so we suddenly have lots of online games to play. Also, the likes of Blood Bowl 2, The Golf Club and Mad Max wouldn't have ever been played, thanks to this all 3 are great.

We’re excited to announce seven great new games added to the catalog on August 29, and September 1.

ReCore Definitive Edition

ReCore DE is coming – and it’s coming right to Xbox Game Pass! ReCore is an ambitious action/adventure title that puts you in the shoes of Joule, accompanied by her three incredible corebot companions, as you traverse the dystopian world of Far Eden. Battle a wide array of enemies, complete side quests, and solve challenging puzzles in this innovative 3D platforming experience.

Metro: Last Light Redux

The post-apocalyptic fun continues in September with Metro: Last Light Redux, an absolute FPS gem from our friends at Deep Silver. Last Light lands you in Moscow in the year 2034, where you play as the character Artyom, navigating the Moscow metro tunnels and combating a hearty mix of human and mutant adversaries. Blending in strong survival and strategy elements, Metro is a compelling sequel to the FPS classic Metro 2033 and an experience Xbox Game Pass members will not want to miss.

Fable II

Also coming to Xbox Game Pass in September is the legendary action RPG, Fable II, published by our very own Microsoft Studios. You play as Sparrow, a young child (you can choose male or female) on a journey to gain vengeance against the evil Lucien. Combat enemies, complete side missions, and find allies on your way to becoming a true hero. With both single player and co-op modes, September is a great time to explore the magical open world of Albion.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves

Xbox Game Pass’ stable of awesome fighting games gets a boost in September with the NEOGEO classic, Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Fight with one of 12 characters in Arcade mode, defeat both bosses, and become the King of Fighters. Or, find a friend and battle it out for couch co-op supremacy. If you’re a fan of Fatal Fury, or just classic fighting games in general, you are going to love getting your rounds in with Garou.

10 Second Ninja X

Requiring skill, speed, and precision, 10 Second Ninja X delivers a heck of a lot of fun and plenty of challenge to Xbox Game Pass members. The premise is simple – you have 10 seconds, a sword, and three shurikens to complete each of the 100 levels in this awesome platformer from our friends at Curve Digital. Explore the different paths to accomplishing each level’s objectives, unlock costumes, gather achievements and find all nine collectible items as you work your way from Level 1 to Level 100. You only get 10 seconds per level, but we won’t be surprised if you lose whole days chasing victory in 10 Second Ninja this month.

Hue

Curve Digital is also giving Xbox Game Pass members access to Hue this September, another terrific Indie puzzle-platformer from our ID@Xbox program. Hue is both the game title and the name of your main character, who is on a mission to bring color to an otherwise monochrome world and solve the mystery of Hue’s lost mother. Read letters from Hue’s mother, learn to control the colors you progressively unlock, and leverage those colors to solve challenging puzzles. With a unique and engaging art style, Hue is a must-play in Xbox Game Pass.

The Bridge

As if your brain wasn’t getting enough of a workout, the brilliant minds at The Astrophysicists Guild bring you The Bridge. A 2D puzzler, The Bridge is tons of fun and very engaging. And while the puzzles will keep you thinking, it may be the black-and-white art design we love most about this game. The Bridge feels like an artist’s sketchbook, with each puzzle occupying a single screen, which allows you to closely analyze each level and decipher the best path to completion. Just don’t be tricked into thinking logic alone will help you succeed in The Bridge – without a fair amount of finesse, and meticulous execution, you may find you need multiple attempts to solve each puzzle and complete the game.

First three on that list are good ones - don't know too much about the others. I've currently got a Gamepass active. I may keep it for September. I love the fact that you can dip in and out, too.

In honor of our Halloween theme through October, our Game Pass Goal will focus on unlocking achievements in our Frightfully Fun collection of titles. Getting an achievement in two different games from the collection gets you a reward, but you’ll need to get an achievement in six different Frightfully Fun games this month if you want to be eligible for the grand prize!

Lastly, we are excited to announce that fans can now use Xbox Gift Card credit to purchase an Xbox Game Pass membership. Starting September 12 and in addition to debit card, credit card and PayPal, an Xbox Game Pass membership can be purchased with an Xbox Gift Card, or existing credit sufficient to cover the low monthly fee.

Now let’s learn more about the new games coming to Xbox Game Pass in October:

Super Street Fighter IV

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – get your fight sticks ready, because Capcom’s Super Street Fighter IV is coming to Xbox Game Pass! Street Fighter is a legendary fighting franchise and for our money, SSF IV is one of the greatest fighting games ever released. Fight as Ken, Cammy, Zangief, Dhalsim, and the rest of the crew across a variety of single and multiplayer game modes, including classic Arcade and online ranked head-to-head battles. Fine tune your strategy and stickwork to become one of the finest combatants Street Fighter has ever seen. Or at least, the best fighter your couch has ever seen.

State of Decay

We are so excited to announce Undead Lab’s gem, State of Decay, is also joining Xbox Game Pass in October! Remastered and re-released for Xbox One, State of Decay is an engrossing third-person open world zombie action survival game (say that three times fast) where you step into the shoes of everyday store clerk Marcus Campbell, tasked with navigating the apocalypse and contributing to the survival of your friend and newfound allies in Trumbull Valley. If you’re a fan of zombie games or survival games, here’s your bacon. And don’t forget, the saga continues with State of Decay 2, coming soon to the Xbox One family of devices in 2018!

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell

The deal sweetens in October with Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, the fun and exciting standalone epilogue to the open world action adventure hit, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected. Choose either Johnny or Kinzie, and use your superpowers to defeat enemies, summon demons, and defeat Satan (never a small achievement). Also, if you’ve been enjoying Saints Row IV and continue enjoying the action in Gat Out of Hell, you should check out the latest installment in the Saints Row realm, Agents of Mayhem, available right now in the Xbox Store.

The Bug Butcher

You’re welcome; we’ll just say that now. Because we think you are really going to dig Awfully Nice’s The Bug Butcher. Jump into your classic story-based Arcade mode or see how long you can last against the insect horde in Panic mode. Whichever you choose, the premise is simple: look up, squeeze trigger, and use power-ups to obliterate every enemy bug that comes your way. Oh, and try not to get hit. Do that, and you’ll easily collect all 90 stars on hard in Arcade mode and become a legend as the last Bug Butcher standing atop the leaderboards in Panic mode. If only it were as easy as it sounds. Things can get heavy in a hurry in Panic mode, so consider finding a friend to fight alongside you for some co-op action! We love this game and are so excited to share it with our members. Want a target to shoot for? Beat all 30 levels in Arcade mode and collect 51 or more stars to best the Xbox Game Pass team top performer.

Costume Quest 2

Halloween isn’t all scares and screams. Double Fine’s Costume Quest 2 is great Halloween-focused fun for all ages this October. Costume Quest 2 is set on Halloween night and offers players the choice to control one of two twins, Reynold or Wren, and discover the host of fun Halloween surprises their neighborhood has in store as you try to save Halloween from the evil dentist, Dr. White. Of course, evil villains are sometimes complex individuals, so take a hop in the Costume Quest time machine to learn more about why the evil dentist grew to hate Halloween and how you may be able to end he and his orcs’ reign of candy-less terror. Engage the locals in conversation, smash objects with your candy bag, combat monsters, and evolve both your powers and costume as you level up this October in Costume Quest 2.

Maldita Castilla EX – Cursed Castle

When we think of castles, we think of ghosts. And when we think of ghosts, we think of Halloween. So, it only makes sense that we would bring you Maldita Castilla EX this month, a tremendous retro medieval platformer and extension upon the original Maldita Castilla arcade game. But beware: conquering the Castle is not for the faint at heart. This is a challenging game with multiple endings depending on how precise your stickwork is (aka how often you die). Make it through in a single run without dying and unlock the ultimate ending. Or accept the frequent deaths and simply enjoy the scenery, which is full of all kinds of spooky, grotesque, and interesting enemies and objects throughout the game.

Tower of Guns

Your mission in Tower of Guns is clear and present — run the gauntlet and destroy the Tower of Guns. Actually, achieving that mission in this first-person shooter is both fun and challenging, as you select one gun and one perk to help you through each run at the Tower. Replayability for Tower of Guns is high, with randomly generating levels ensuring familiar but fresh experiences across hours and hours of gameplay. Dodge cannon shots, malicious robots, and grab secret loot stashes as you strategically move from room to room and take your shot at glory. Can you take the Tower?

Xbox Game Pass: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Halo Wars DE, Resident Evil HD and More Available November 1

Most recently we revealed the addition of Original Xbox games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility library. To celebrate the launch, we’re adding the Original Xbox Ninja Gaiden Black to the Xbox Game Pass catalog, for members to enjoy for free as part of their membership, and is available to play right now – go check it out.

Now let’s learn more about the new games coming to Xbox Game Pass in November:

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
We’re excited to announce Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is joining Xbox Game Pass for the next three months. If you haven’t played Konami’s critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning latest installment to the legendary Metal Gear franchise, wait no longer.

In The Phantom Pain’s single-player campaign, you must stealthily guide Snake through an open world full of countless, dangerous enemies, while navigating the rugged terrain of Afghanistan to take down the evil Patriots organization. Once you finish with the campaign, gather your Xbox Game Pass comrades and jump into The Phantom Pain’s base-building multiplayer mode, Metal Gear Online. There’s so much to do, so don’t miss out on all the fun and intensity Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain can offer while it’s in the Xbox Game Pass catalog from November 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018. And, if you love Metal Gear Solid V, get ready for next chapter, Metal Gear Survive, which is set to release on Xbox One February 20, 2018.

Halo Wars Definitive Edition
November signals a return to the Halo universe with Halo Wars: Definitive Edition. Halo Wars is an incredibly exciting top-down real-time strategy experience, which requires you to master everything from tactical troop deployments to base building to resource management. Play though the Campaign as you lead the UNSC’s Spirit of Fire against the Covenant forces in this epic adventure. At 1080p, 60fps, and paired with a dynamic soundtrack, now’s the best time to experience this RTS classic.

Resident Evil HD
There’s no better time to bring Resident Evil HD to Xbox Game Pass than during Halloween. As a franchise, Resident Evil is a cornerstone of today’s thriving survival-horror genre within gaming. Dark, ominous, and sure to elicit an involuntary response or two, Resident Evil HD takes you back to 1998, where you take on the role of either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, members of the STARS special forces team sent to investigate a series of very unusual murders. Cornered and sheltered inside a seriously spooky old mansion, you’ll find that your health is precious, and your ammo even more so. Can you survive the dangers of the night and uncover the evil intentions of the Umbrella corporation?

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty
The hits keep coming in November with Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, an iconic 2D platformer that deftly strikes a perfect balance between Oddworld nostalgia and next-gen polish. In New ‘n’ Tasty, you control the lovable Mudokon, Abe, who is thrust into the position of hero-to-be once he realizes the meat processing plant where he works is about to get into the Mudokon-processing business. Not keen to become meat snacks, Abe sets out on a quest to escape the guards, Sligs, Scrabs, and other creepy creatures inhabiting the meat factory. Help Abe sneak his way to survival!

The World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap
For the action RPG and tower defense fans out there, our friends at Neocore have a treat for you: World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap. Jump back into the gothic realm of Incredible Adventures and protect the Silent Forts from the hordes of monsters seeking to destroy Borgovia. Build, protect, and defend solo or cooperatively, and even battle online against your friends and fellow Xbox Game Pass members. We love this Indie gem and we hope you do too!

Mega Man 9
More Mega Man, they said. More Mega Man, we bring. Our blue buddy returns to Xbox Game Pass with more to explore in Mega Man 9. For the uninitiated, Mega Man is a legendary 2D platforming shooter delivering hours of fun battling a wide array of bosses, from Hornet Man to Splash Woman and many more in between.

Sky Force Anniversary
If flying and shooting is your thing, then you better make time in November for Sky Force Anniversary. Brought to you by developer Infinite Dreams, Sky Force Anniversary is an exceptionally fun and fluid vertical scrolling shooter, demanding laser focus, nimble thumbs, and a deft trigger finger. With a deceptively simple but engaging progression system, collect as many stars as you can to strategically build out your weaponry, fortify your defenses, and achieve all four objectives for each stage. Beat all nine levels at each difficulty level and defeat the evil General Madness to unlock a bonus! Having trouble completing your missions as a squadron of one? Pull a friend onto the couch for some local co-op and take down General Madness together!

I haven't been an xbox gamer since the 360 days so I'm hoping I won't have that much. I've looked at my account and a few old classics have raised a smile and will get installed.
Civ Rev, Poker Smash (this was super awesome), Carcassonne and Catan are day one musts.
