The new Xbox One X patch for Forza Horizon 3 supports 4K resolution

Also known as "Netflix for Xbox", Xbox Game Pass is presently limited to Xbox One consoles. This update to the $10 a month service will allow subscribers access some huge games as soon as they release. It's always been a neat little extra, but as of this week it's evolving into something much more useful. This will begin to take effect with the release of Sea of Thieves in March, to be followed by both State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3. After getting beaten out by Sony during that fateful E3 Microsoft has really kicked it into overdrive - competition is good! Start your 14-day free Xbox Game Pass trial today: http://www.xbox.com/game-pass or directly from your Xbox One console. "Yes if the title is Xbox Play Anywhere you can play the PC version too if you are a Game Pass member", Greenberg said. This novel step also includes future unannounced games like the next Halo, Forza and Gears of War games-as well as all future Xbox One exclusives to boot. "We are delighted to offer the world's most powerful console with access to most diverse games line-up in Xbox history, including Forza Motorsport 7, Assassin's Creed: Origins, Cuphead and Super Lucky's Tale", Priyadarshi Mohapatra, country general manager, consumer and devices sales, Microsoft India, told reporters here. The cards will cost $60 (matching Game Pass's existing fee of $10/month), but will mean you don't need a credit card to subscribe.

Interestingly, the press release is sure to mention that all future exclusives will also be made available through Xbox Game Pass on the day of their release.

"We've only scratched the surface of the opportunity this new model brings to the industry and what we can deliver to our fans", Microsoft's head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, wrote yesterday.
