Microsoft is expanding its Xbox Game Pass subscription service

The program will kick off with Sea of Thieves on March 20th, which means that anyone with a subscription for Xbox Game Pass will be able to download and play the game on launch day. It's also worth noting that the Game Pass now only supports games that are on the console and does not now feature support for the Xbox Play Anywhere program, which lets gamers buy one title and enjoy it both on a PC running Windows 10 and the console.

In case you missed it previous year, Microsoft launched a subscription service that allows Xbox One owners to pay $9.99 a month in order to have access to a ever-growing collection of downloadable games.

In the announcement, Xbox boss Phil Spencer also dropped some hints that the console's biggest franchises will be popping up on the subscription service too. The full patch notes can be seen below that detail everything new with the latest Xbox One update, but you can also look ahead to the Xbox One's Alpha Preview to see what's coming in the future.

Also known as "Netflix for Xbox", Xbox Game Pass is presently limited to Xbox One consoles.
