Kotaku has asked Microsoft to clarify some of the less in-depth points of the announcement, namely whether the new service will change how Games with Gold works.
“Games with Gold and Xbox Game Pass are two different service offerings with unique benefits,” says a statement Kotaku received. “Games with Gold is an added benefit specific to Xbox Live Gold members that rewards players with two to four free games each month to enjoy. Xbox Game Pass is a subscription-based service that gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 backward compatible games for Xbox One for $9.99 USD per month.”
It’s also worth noting that you don’t need Xbox Live Gold for Game Pass like you do to receive the Games with Gold benefits. “Xbox Live Gold is not required for Xbox Game Pass, however, Xbox Live Gold is required for multiplayer titles that are part of the Xbox Game Pass catalog,” Microsoft’s statement continued.
