The gaming console market is a notoriously competitive field — and Microsoft is taking a different approach: if you can’t change the gear, then change the game. Microsoft launched Xbox Game Pass last summer and provided members with access to over 100 games. If you’ve not yet tried the service, head below to learn how you can start a 14-day free trial.

With access to over 100 great games, the only problem that Xbox Game Pass holders have these days is deciding which games to dive into next. Whether you’re looking for throwback classics or digging for new treasures, there’s a ton of quality in all this quantity.

Since its launch over 12 months ago, Xbox Game Pass has already seen a variety of improvements to the service. It’s available in more than 40 countries and all future first-party games hit the service the same day that they launch, meaning subscribers also get instant access to blockbuster games.

Even more importantly, Xbox Game Pass is a step towards liberating consumers and gamers from the usual trappings of buying video games and consoles — meaning customers get to discover and explore more games for less. It’s actually changing gaming habits, and allowing people to game more, even outside of the Xbox Game Pass library. The higher number of active players and increased communication means more networks of gamers who talk to each other about new releases, and who are more willing to spend money on a new game with a built-in team they’ve already started to play with.

Similar to other content services, Xbox Game Pass gives you access to a massive library of games that’s updated each month for a single, monthly fee. You can play both Xbox One and Xbox 360 backward-compatible games right on your Xbox One. You also get access to Xbox exclusive titles, like Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 4, and State of Decay 2 the day they launch. You can see the entire selection right here.
