According to some recent pieces of information, Microsoft is going to end its subscription to Xbox Live Gold. After what feels like an eternity, the change will signal the end of the “Xbox Live” label. Games with Gold, which debuted in 2013 on the Xbox 360, will supposedly also be discontinued.
The recent information was sourced from WindowsCentral. However, the link to this was missing a few hours later. However, some other sources were able to grasp a few more details reported in the piece. According to the available information, the company is going to substitute the Xbox Live Gold subscription with a new plan i.e., Xbox Game Pass Core.”
Xbox Game Pass Core might be unveiled on September 1. The prices are reportedly the same as the Xbox Live Gold. Thus, you can anticipate paying $9.99 monthly or $59.99 annually for a subscription. It is believed that the new subscription plan will come with some new offerings like the ability to play multiplayer games online, and grant users access to exclusive Game Pass discounts and deals.
In addition to this, users might get access to almost twenty-five Game Pass tiles. These might include Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Grounded, Halo 5: Guardians, Halo Wars 2, Among Us, Descenders, Dishonored 2, DOOM Eternal, Human Fall Flat, INSIDE, and Ori. Furthermore, the game titles like Fable Anniversary, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Will of the Wisps, Psychonauts 2, State of Decay 2, and Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited could also be a part of the new package. Besides these gaming titles, the company might introduce new ones in the future.
According to reports, the current Xbox Live Gold subscribers will inevitably be shifted to Game Pass Core subscribers. Moreover, the Live Gold members will have access to previously acquired free games. They could access the free games from their accounts. In the meantime, the thing to notice here is that none of this information has been confirmed by the company as yet.
