Today at E3, Microsoft announced that they are expanding the Xbox Game Pass catalogue by adding some new titles which include Forza Horizon 4, Fallout 4, Tom Clancy’s The Division and The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.
Microsoft also announced FastStart, an innovation from Microsoft’s Machine Learning Team which will enable you to jump into your game twice as fast and play after downloading just a fraction of your title. FastStart identifies which files are needed to begin playing and prioritizes the download of those files first, enabling you to quickly jump into full-fidelity gameplay while the remainder of your title downloads in the background. Simply find the FastStart-enabled title you want to play, hit Download and your console will take care of the rest.
The Redmond Giant is also planning a game streaming service which will play a crucial role in unlocking console-quality gaming on any device. The launch date of any such service is not made to the public as of yet. We will learn more about Microsoft’s plan regarding this streaming service in future.
