Get a year's worth of Xbox Game Pass for half price

Press B to unleash 100+ games new, old and strange.

The Xbox Game Pass is like Netflix for games, giving you access to nearly 200 Xbox titles as part of a monthly subscription. Thanks to the upcoming festivities, you can get a year's worth of Xbox Game Pass for the price of six months over at Amazon, coming to £47.99 in total.

There are plenty of games to be had, from blockbusters to indie darlings, old-school Xbox 360 games to cult classics such as Blood Bowl 2. Xbox Game Pass is also updated regularly, with new content every month.

Over at Argos, a mere six months of Xbox Game Pass costs the same. Meanwhile, an annual supply of Xbox Game Pass will set you back £54.99 at GAME - a less substantive festive offer.

Microsoft exclusives such as Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 4 join the Game Pass catalogue immediately following launch. This likely applies to upcoming releases too, such as Gears 5. Check out our regularly updated Xbox Game Pass games guide for a comprehensive list of available titles via Xbox Game Pass.

Note that Xbox Game Pass is separate from Xbox Live Gold. If you want online multiplayer gameplay (such as in Sea of Thieves), further exclusive deals and the popular monthly free games, you'll need to get yourself Xbox Live Gold.

Unlike Netflix, Xbox Game Pass requires a download of any title you'll be looking to play. (For now - Microsoft will begin trialling a streaming service soon.) So it's worth looking at storage solutions for your Xbox One, especially if you've got your eye on this year's AAA big boys. Our sister site Jelly Deals has a comprehensive list of the best Xbox storage solutions to be had.
