Can you pay upfront for this and does it provide a discount?

I saw that currently Game Pass is £1 for new subscribers. If I bought it does the sub stay at £1 or goes back up to £7.99?

Well that's gooseberry fool, I have the trial running so I can't have the £1 price I would have to pay £7.99 even though I have never had an actual sub outside the 14 day trial.

December games -

Gears of War 4
December brings a big list of holiday gifts for Xbox Game Pass members, and the first out of the box is Gears of War 4, the latest installment in the critically-acclaimed third person shooter franchise from The Coalition.

Now, with the complete set of Gears of War titles included with your Xbox Game Pass membership, there has never been a better time than this holiday to become immersed in the story of the Fenix.

Jump into campaign solo or co-op and take on the role of J.D. Fenix, son to Marcus Fenix and Anya Stroud, as you and your band of Outsiders confront the Coalition of Ordered Governments, battle the impending Swarm, and unravel the mystery of Marcus Fenix’ last 25 years. And that’s just in the single player campaign – there is more excitement to be found in multiplayer or Horde mode. As an added bonus, The Coalition is kicking of December with a double XP incentive.

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
Also headlining December is Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, THQ Nordic’s third person action adventure journey based on the lore of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. You play the horseman War, and you are tasked with venturing out from The Scalding Gallow to explore and discover new lands, weapons, enemies, and abilities. The Endwar has begun on Earth, inciting a great battle between angels, demons and man. Only War can break the Seventh Seal and finally restore order to the realm.

And don’t forget, Darksiders III is coming to the Xbox One family of devices in 2018, so if you’ve been curious about Darksiders but have never played it before, now is a prime opportunity to use your Xbox Game Pass membership and see what all that buzz is about.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter
Friends and family unite this December to solve the thrilling mystery of Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, brought to you by BigBen Interactive. The legendary detective is back with five cases to investigate, as well as a host of additional personal, professional, and moral hurdles to overcome along the way. Use your detective powers to collect all the evidence and solve each puzzle as you bring peace and security back to the streets of London.

This War of Mine: The Little Ones
Xbox Game Pass gets another diamond in the rough this month with This War of Mine: The Little Ones, a civilian-based perspective on the Bosnian War, developed by 11-bit studios and published by Deep Silver. This War of Mine is equal parts strategy and survival, requiring you to take on the role of a bystander to war and scavenge for resources, ration supplies, and try (oft unsuccessfully) to avoid the perils of war. This War of Mine is a demanding game covering a very sobering topic, and one you are not likely to forget anytime soon.

Casey Powell Lacrosse 16
If you’re a sports fan, fun times await this month with Casey Powell Lacrosse 16. Lacrosse is a fast-paced, action-packed sport requiring keen strategy and tactical precision and CPL 16 delivers pace and excitement reminiscent of the real thing. If you’re new to Lacrosse, jump into the Lacrosse Academy to develop and polish your skills. From there, play pickup in Quick Match (solo or competitive multiplayer) or start your sure-to-be-illustrious journey in career mode. Are you a fan of customization? With CPL 16, create your own characters, build your own teams and forge your LAX dynasty from the ground up.

Mega Man 10
Did we mention we love Mega Man? The adventure continues in Xbox Game Pass in December with Mega Man 10 joining the catalog. Mega Man 10, the last and final installment in the legendary platforming saga, allows you to assume the role of either Mega Man or Proto Man and take on classic boss battles with Blade Man, Chill Man, Sheep Man, and more! Mega Man may seem fun and simple, but it can be a very challenging test of your skills. Struggling with your stealth? Play through the main story or jump into Challenge Mode, where you can polish your abilities in 88 different mini-games. There’s never been a better time to join the action and defeat the evil Dr. Wiley!

Mass Effect
We are beyond excited to bring Mass Effect to Xbox Game Pass on December 1! One of the greatest single-player action RPGs of all-time, Mass Effect is a true classic that has aged extremely well. In Mass Effect, we follow the story of Commander Shepard, a 22nd century soldier assuming the tiny little mission of… saving the entire universe from a super race of ill-intentioned, mighty mechs. Choose from six different classes and up-level your character as you seek out and complete combat missions, resource gathering expeditions, and other side quests. Winner of multiple awards, Mass Effect is an incredible experience that we highly recommend you make time to check out in your journeys through the Xbox Game Pass catalog!

With over 100 great games, for just $9.99 a month, plus new games added every month, Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play. Thanks for reading December’s Xbox Game Pass update, and don’t forget, you can start your Xbox Game Pass membership for just $1 between November 17 – 27.

For all the latest Xbox news, keep it locked to Xbox Wire. Until next month, game on!

Gears of War 4 this month, MGSV last month, Recore Definitive the month before. A pretty constant stream of good "headline" games. It's a great service. Hopefully, they'll get a broader selection of publishers as the service evolves. A reduced price Gold + Gamepass would be great, too. Maybe, £10/month for both.

Interesting that they’ve added Mass Effect. Are they going to try and poach subscribers from EA access? Still doesn’t feel like the better value of the two services, although it gets props for not being EA.

I think that's a win for both companies. Microsoft gets another decent game on the service and a +1 to the overall number on there. EA won't mind Game Pass taking an old 360 game, and there's potential to turn a few people into Mass Effect fans, which might then make them an Access subscriber if they want to continue the story.

They did this a while back putting Dead Space on as a Game With Gold too. I can't see any of the big new EA releases going on Game Pass, but they might let MS cherry pick a few of the older titles.

Bit of a cop-out putting old Games With Gold on there. :?

That is a really decent selection of games. Has anything else been taken out yet? I know MGS5 was only for a limited time.

I am enjoying the games still. I will probably play a little NBA, Halo War 2 and WWE, but will concentrate on the three indie games that I have not played. I like getting the chance to try different types of games. I don't think I will ever find the time to replay a Fable game or Darksiders.

NBA 2K16 was delisted, though NBA 2K17 is being added in February.

Edit: WWE 2K16 is being removed at the end of this month too.

Not bad at all!

I subbed to this for the free 14 day thing to play Resi 6 (instead of buying it when it was in the sale) and I'm struggling to find something else I actually want to play :lol: :oops:

Yeah I got a month free when I bought my X and beyond a little bit of GOW:UE I've not touched anything on it. Think I'll be cancelling the renewal and waiting till I've cleared some of my backlog.

Check out some of our stuff!
