For those unaware, Xbox Game Pass is a subscription-based service that works much like Netflix, allowing users to download and play titles from a library of over 100 Xbox 360 and Xbox One games on Xbox One.
The copies of the two most recent Forza games certainly do sweeten the pot — they’re sold outside the Game Pass program, meaning players get to keep them after their subscription-based time ends. Both titles are also part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program, meaning you can play them on Windows 10 PCs as well. Moreover, a year of Xbox Game Pass normally costs $131.40 AUD, so you’re getting a bargain without even factoring in the cost of the two free games.
If you already own the two Forza games, that’s no problem — Xbox’s Major Nelson has confirmed that subscribers “will receive codes to download Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Motorsport 7 via Xbox Message Center, likely within 7-10 days, but no later than October 21, 2018.” That means you can gift the codes to a friend!
