Microsoft Says First-Party Titles Will Be Permanent Part of Game Pass

New Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games revealed

Both games will also be playable on an Xbox One with backward compatibility. Next month's selection includes the 2D platformer Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India, 90s FPS reboot Shadow Warrior, explosion-heavy arcade racer Split/Second, and the Xbox 360 version of Sega's classic Crazy Taxi. From their point of view, it's pointless to sell Xbox products because their new Game Pass announcement will cut into software sales.

Xbox players can begin downloading "Shadow Warrior" for free from february 1 to february 28.

There are some okay games coming to the Xbox Games With Gold for Xbox Live Gold subscribers in February, 2018.

It should be noted that while six games have been released, only five can be bought online. However, at least Xbox Game Pass subscribers know that they'll be able to get first dibs on the game alongside everyone else who plans on playing the game day-one.

Of course, nothing is going to change for the selection of other games continually added to the service. Unlike its sequel, the game runs at 60 FPS on Xbox One. They have gone as far as saying they "don't understand why one should still sell Microsoft consoles". Split/Second is also available soon as one of February's Games with Gold. While there may be a lack of an absolute blockbuster in the line-up, the sort of games included here are those best served by the subscription service.

For Xbox 360 owners, February 1 will bring a free download of Split/Second, which will remain available until February 15th (retail price: $19.99).
