Can You Play Xbox Game Pass Titles Without Downloading?
Xbox Game Pass officially launches today on Xbox One, giving owners access to over 100 titles. There are quite a few big-name games featured, such as Halo 5: Guardians, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, and Sunset Overdrive. For just $9.99 a month you can download any of the titles straight to your Xbox One, and play them at your leisure. You’ll also get access to discounts on certain games, if you want to purchase them to own. Of course, cancelling the service will lock the game out for you, unless you’ve purchased it at that point.
With so many games on offer, you’ll no doubt want to jump in as soon as possible. Unfortunately, you will need to completely download each title available on the service before you can start playing, just like you would any other Xbox One title. You can’t stream the games available, and you won’t be able to start them in the middle of downloading either. The service functions pretty much the same as if you’d bought a game normally. Just select what you want from the list, download it, and you’ll be ready to go.
