Microsoft has revealed the full list of 36 games that’ll be available as part of the new Xbox Game Pass Core subscription tier, which is about to replace Xbox Live Gold.
The tier, which will sit below the standard Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate offerings, includes a much smaller library of games, which will rotate in and out.

Game Pass Core goes live tomorrow, signalling the end for the Games With Gold scheme that gifted members a couple of games they could download and keep. Existing subscribers will be automatically moved over to the new tier and games already redeemed can be kept and redownloaded at any point.
The price isn’t changing, thankfully. Xbox Game Pass Core will cost the same £6.99/$9.90 a month, or £39.99/$59.99 a year. Gamers will also retain access to online multiplayer.
Microsoft announced around half of these games back in July when Core was confirmed, but now we have the full list. There’s plenty of classics in here, but most of them are a little long in the tooth at this point. There’s no access to games like Starfield, for instance, which is a day one launch for subscribers to Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate.
However, prepared to what gamers got with Games With Gold, this is a huge upgrade.
In a blog post, Microsoft said it plans to update the library 2-3 times a year and the subscription is available to Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X gamers. Here’s what you’ll get straight out of the gate:
Doom Eternal Standard Edition
Forza Horizon 4 Standard Edition
Gears 5 Game of the Year Edition
Golf with your Friends
Halo 5: Guardians
Halo Wars 2
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
Human Fall Flat
Ori & the Will of the Wisps
Payday 2: Crimewave Edition
Slay the Spire
Spiritfarer: Farewell Edition
State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition
The Elder Scrolls Online
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge
