Wasn't expecting Dirt Rally to go in. Might buy a month just for that.

Isn't Game Pass gonna remove games periodically too? Like Netflix? If so, I hope you guys cover that to let us know.

If you go into the app it tells you what games are added and any special promotions that may be going on, like what they recently did with Payday 2 and all the DLC being discounted if you are Games Pass member. I am sure they will add a tab to let you know what games will be leaving soon as well.

Yes, we'll definitely cover it if we hear about it! According to Microsoft they will make big announcements and give "plenty of notice" so it won't be very secretive or hard for us to find the information.

I'm hoping it would just be included with the addition announcements and they'd say "X games are being added; X games are being removed."

They start removing games in October (I think). Until then, they'll add more every month. :)

If you look at the Game Pass discounted price (if you wanted to purchase the full game), the Xbox One titles have a sale expiry date one year from the date they were added to Game Pass. That could indicate that Xbox One titles (360 titles don't show expiry) will stay in the library for a year before being removed. WWE 2K16 and NBA 2K16 appear to be the exceptions, expiring after 6 months.

I own Limbo and So Many Me already, but everything else is new to me. I assumed previous GWG titles would be added since that just makes sense, and I'm fine with that since I joined the GWG program late and missed some good ones.

The biggest takeaway here for me is Dead Rising 3. I've wanted to play it for a little while and had hoped it would get added to the Games Pass. I actually held off on buying it assuming it would eventually make it to GWG or the Games Pass, being an Xbox exclusive and all. I'm glad I was patient. smile

All of the games in the pass are slated to stay until at least November, then they will periodically remove them

Are any games being de-listed? Or do they keep adding the games into game pass without removing any?

The only question that I have about them removing games and maybe somebody knows the answer. Lets say for example, Bioshock is on gamepass and come this November, they remove it, and you still have it downloaded on your Xbox One, do you still get to play it or will you be forced to buy it if you want to finish it? Just wondering if anyknow knows the answer to that??
