Game Pass is Microsoft's own gaming service that serves like Netflix but for video games. The company has now announced several new games joining the big list. 

Larry 'Major Nelson' Hyrb announced on his official Twitter account eight new video games coming to Xbox Game Pass. Many of the games added a pretty new so it's worth signing up. 

The eight new games included are: NBA 2K17, WWE 2K17, Halo Wars 2, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition, Fable Anniversary, RIME, Riptide Renegade GP and Letter Quest: Grimm’s Journey

Xbox Game Pass costs around $10.95 NZD in New Zealand per month and several games are downloadable for you to play. Unlike EA Access, this service includes games from more than publisher. 

Not to mention the games are fully playable on Game Pass so you are not just playing a demo or extended trial. I have Game Pass right now and enjoy it on my Xbox One a lot. A full list of available games can be seen by clicking here
