These 19 Games Will Be 'Free' With Xbox Game Pass Core At Launch

Microsoft has announced today that Xbox Live Gold is being converted into the new "Xbox Game Pass Core" membership this September, and as part of the change, "Core" members will get access to over 25 Game Pass titles.

At the moment, Microsoft is only confirming 19 of these games, with more to be revealed before the Game Pass Core launch date of September 14th. All of these will be playable at no extra charge:

Xbox Game Pass Core will remain at the same price as Xbox Live Gold ($9.99 per-month or $59.99 per-year) and include online multiplayer access as well as member benefits. Microsoft has also confirmed that in addition to the titles listed above, more games will be added to the selection around 2-3 times per-year.

If you already have Xbox Live Gold, your membership will become an "Xbox Game Pass Core" subscription on September 14th, so you don't need to do anything on your end. Sadly though, it means the end of Games With Gold.
