Xbox have announced big news today, with a massive change coming to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.

Xbox Live is the subscription that allows players to play online, while Game Pass is their library of games for players if they have signed up.

Xbox Game Pass Core will be a merging of the two, and is scheduled to release on September 14, costing $9.99 per month or $59.99 per year.

Thankfully gamers will not have to change any login or payment details for their existing Xbox Live Gold, and will not lose any existing games.

Xbox released a statement and an explainer video on Twitter, which goes through all the details:

Today, we’re continuing our commitment to give players more choice and value by introducing Xbox Game Pass Core, launching on September 14. Game Pass Core is the evolution of Xbox Live Gold.

"With this evolution, we’re saying farewell to Games with Gold," the statement continues.

"We wanted to use this opportunity to re-imagine how to include content with this subscription. We found that the answer to the most compelling catalog was to leverage select titles from our Xbox Game Pass catalog.


At launch, they will be releasing the 25 games below for players to download, with more to be added:

Among Us, Descenders, Dishonored 2, Doom Eternal, Fable Anniversary, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Grounded, Halo 5: Guardians, Halo Wars 2, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Human Fall Flat, Inside
