Microsoft has revealed the official launch date for their Xbox Game Pass program. Announced earlier this year, the Xbox Game Pass program is a digital gaming subscription service giving players access to over 100 Xbox One and Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games for £7.99 GBP per month.

As of now, Xbox Live Gold members can start using the program via a 14-day free trial. The program will be available at large on June 1st for all users meaning that everyone with an Xbox Live account can start their 14-day free trial. Players who will decide to jump on the bandwagon will be able to purchase a subscription online and at retail later this year.

As an added benefit, Xbox Game Pass members can purchase all Xbox One games in the catalogue, and related add-ons, at an exclusive discount to make them part of your permanent library.
