Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass now has a release date and subscribers will be able to play over 100 games spanning both Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles. 

Every Xbox One owner will be able to sign up to the service from June 1st, 2017. However, early access to the service is available now if you are an Xbox Live Gold member. 

If you are unfamiliar with Xbox Game Pass, it's a new Netflix style subscription service that allows you to play and download a host of Xbox One and Xbox 360 backwards compatible video games. You can enjoy the likes of Halo 5: Guardians, NBA 2K16, Lego Batman and more. 

The service will approximately cost $10.95 per month. Alternatively, you can sign up and start a 14 day free trial to see if this is something you want to keep paying for every month.
