When we launched Xbox Game Pass in June 2017, we knew we wanted to craft a service with gamers in mind. That meant a diverse, expanding library of over 100 games and counting, matched with one monthly price and unlimited access to download and play full-fidelity experiences.
We’ve been blown away by the incredible response. Following launch, we heard from fans around the world who wanted Xbox Game Pass in their country. In September, we expanded globally and Xbox Game Pass is now available to fans in 40 countries. We’ve also continued to expand the catalog with new games added to the Xbox Game Pass library every month, so there is always something new to play.
We know our fans value having a variety of games to play at a low monthly price. We’ve also heard from fans that the ability to play new blockbuster games in Xbox Game Pass is important. So we’ve continued to explore new ideas to make this possible.
Today, we’re excited to announce plans for a major expansion to Xbox Game Pass that underscores our commitment to deliver our fans the ultimate gaming subscription service.
Moving forward, we plan to release all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release. This means that when Sea of Thieves launches on March 20, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass to all members.
This plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3 but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch.
Our fans have also asked for more choice in the subscription offerings available for Xbox Game Pass. As part of today’s library expansion, we are also pleased to announce that we are working closely with our retail partners, such as GameStop, to offer a 6-month Xbox Game Pass subscription card for those fans who look for a variety of ways to purchase and enjoy new games and services. The 6-month Xbox Game Pass subscription card will be available at select retail partners for $59.99 beginning March 20. By working closely with retail partners, Xbox Game Pass will have valuable ambassadors in popular destinations for gamers to discover new and exciting games and enjoy community.
With the addition of more great games, new blockbuster releases and a new subscription offer, we are giving fans more choice and value in how they discover and enjoy games – purchase games for their permanent library or play through Xbox Game Pass for one low price.
We’ve only scratched the surface of the opportunity this new model brings to the industry and what we can deliver to our fans. We firmly believe Xbox Game Pass will be a catalyst to create new opportunities for game developers and publishers to innovate in the way games are developed and delivered, leading to entirely new ways to play.
We’re truly humbled by the incredible response we’ve received to date for Xbox Game Pass, and we look forward to offering an unprecedented choice and value with Xbox Game Pass this spring and beyond.
Watch any NFL game and you’ll see player and coaches reviewing videos and images on light-blue Microsoft Surface tablets. But Microsoft’s involvement with the NFL goes much deeper than sideline branding.
Just ask the Seattle Seahawks, who use Microsoft technology on the field to improve player training, recover, and wellness, and off the field to innovate and execute for its rabid fan base — so well that the Seahawks have sold out 127 straight home games (and counting) and were ranked #1 in game day experience by the NFL’s ‘Voice of the Fan.’
To find out more about the Seahawk’s digital transformation, I talked with Amy Sprangers, VP of Corporate Sponsorship
Any technologies you adopt have to serve multiple goals. You’re not just in the football business; you’re in the entertainment business, the hospitality business…
Our objective is to be on the frontline of embracing technology on the field, to identify the right investments to make sure our franchise succeeds. The detailed data we gather helps improve recovery time, reduces time off the field, maximizes our players’ impact when it comes to game time…
But you’re right. Off the field obviously matters, too. We want to connect closely with our fans to give them the best experience when they come to the stadium — and when they go to an opposing team’s stadium on the road. We constantly want to improve how we connect with fans. We’re proud we are ranked #1 in game day experience, but we want that experience to get even better.
So how do you turn all that data into actionable insights?
It starts with clearly defining your objectives. For us, that means making sure our fans have an incredible experience.
We have data to support that. We’ve sold out 127 consecutive home games. Over 99% of our season tickets holders renew. Our fans in this community and across the country are passionate about the Seahawks.
That, as a front office, is our most cherished responsibility. Our goal is to be the best stewards we can be to our players, to our fan base, to our partners across the country… at every level our goal is to be a championship-caliber team.
Like any business, sports are obviously cyclical, but when you make customer experience a top priority, you can smooth out some of those cycles.
But you don’t just wake up one day and say, “Let’s use technology to help us build our business.”
That’s definitely been an evolution. It took time to reach a state of maturity to really capture insights from the rich set of data we have.
But, really, that’s the Microsoft partnership paying off. The various applications in Dynamics 365 (a suite of ERP and CRM applications) helped us evolve. That’s how we manage our ticket holder database. We capture information that comes from our fans to invest in the right areas of our building: Improve sound, food and beverage, safety and security of fans and guests… we can do that because we can analyze and make sense of all the data we receive.
It can be hard to sift through a massive data set and decide what to work on, so we keep it simple: We look for ways to make the most impact. If we hear that a fan can’t hear a call from a referee’s mic on the field, we look at ways to improve that. If we hear there is a certain section where food and beverage lines are longer, we work to improve that. We analyze points of purchase to help lines move more quickly so guests can get back to their seats.
Speaking of food and beverage, you brought that in-house. Why?
That’s a great example of listening to our fans. We know how important it is for fans to feel safe and secure… and to be served great food. So last march we decided to launch our own hospitality company, First and Goal Hospitality.
We wanted to control that. That’s all a part of constant renewal, of making investments to be sure we’re first in class.
It starts with data, but you have to act on your data. You can’t wait.
Keep in mind that at CenturyLink Field we also have the Sounders (soccer), we host major concerts… next year Taylor Swift will perform here. Over 2.3 million people a year come to our facility.
So we have to be proactive, because ultimately we’re in the experience business, and customer expectations constantly evolve.
Speaking of being proactive…
What’s next for us? Continuing to explore ways to improve customer experience. Continuing to leverage insights. Expanding our use of mobile technologies.
Customization of data will help us moving forward. Whether it’s football, soccer, concerts… we’re pushing to provide a customized experienced for everyone who visits the building.
From our perspective, if our fans aren’t constantly expecting us to deploy new things, better things… then we’re not doing our jobs.
Every business wants ‘raving fans.’ How has the Seahawks organization built such a devoted fan base?
For the Seahawks specifically, when fans come in the building, it’s all about ritual. You wear all your gear. You paint your face. You dye your hair.
More than that, though, our fans believe — with good reason — that they make an impact. We lead the league in opposing team false starts. Our defense will speak to the power of our fan base. Our fans are so loud they actually impact game play.
So we looked at how can we celebrate and honor our 12s. The 12 flag raising tradition came directly from feedback from fans; it’s one way to pay tribute to them. When our team takes the field, it’s a special moment.
Our fan share ownership when they come into the building. That feeling is true and authentic, because it comes from the fans themselves.
We also have a fan council, a great representation of season ticket holders who meet to share positive and negative feedback, describe improvements they would like to see… that’s another great set of information that helps us improve our fan experience. Whether it’s sound improvement, concession improvement, more choices or grab-and-go locations where a fan can access healthy options and be in and out very quickly…
We really feel like we have a great responsibility to our fans. It’s not lip service. They integral to everything we want to accomplish on the field, off the field, in the community… our fans aren’t “just” fans. They really are a part of the team.

Gears of War 4
December brings a big list of holiday gifts for Xbox Game Pass members, and the first out of the box is Gears of War 4, the latest installment in the critically-acclaimed third person shooter franchise from The Coalition.

And that’s just in the single player campaign – there is more excitement to be found in multiplayer or Horde mode. As an added bonus, The Coalition is kicking of December with a double XP incentive.
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
Also headlining December is Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, THQ Nordic’s third person action adventure journey based on the lore of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. You play the horseman War, and you are tasked with venturing out from The Scalding Gallow to explore and discover new lands, weapons, enemies, and abilities. The Endwar has begun on Earth, inciting a great battle between angels, demons and man. Only War can break the Seventh Seal and finally restore order to the realm.

Use your detective powers to collect all the evidence and solve each puzzle as you bring peace and security back to the streets of London.
This War of Mine: The Little Ones
Xbox Game Pass gets another diamond in the rough this month with This War of Mine: The Little Ones, a civilian-based perspective on the Bosnian War, developed by 11-bit studios and published by Deep Silver. This War of Mine is equal parts strategy and survival, requiring you to take on the role of a bystander to war and scavenge for resources, ration supplies, and try (oft unsuccessfully) to avoid the perils of war. This War of Mine is a demanding game covering a very sobering topic, and one you are not likely to forget anytime soon.
Casey Powell Lacrosse 16
If you’re a sports fan, fun times await this month with Casey Powell Lacrosse 16. Lacrosse is a fast-paced, action-packed sport requiring keen strategy and tactical precision and CPL 16 delivers pace and excitement reminiscent of the real thing.

From there, play pickup in Quick Match (solo or competitive multiplayer) or start your sure-to-be-illustrious journey in career mode. Are you a fan of customization? With CPL 16, create your own characters, build your own teams and forge your LAX dynasty from the ground up.
Mega Man 10
Did we mention we love Mega Man? The adventure continues in Xbox Game Pass in December with Mega Man 10 joining the catalog. Mega Man 10, the last and final installment in the legendary platforming saga, allows you to assume the role of either Mega Man or Proto Man and take on classic boss battles with Blade Man, Chill Man, Sheep Man, and more! Mega Man may seem fun and simple, but it can be a very challenging test of your skills. Struggling with your stealth? Play through the main story or jump into Challenge Mode, where you can polish your abilities in 88 different mini-games. There’s never been a better time to join the action and defeat the evil Dr. Wiley!
We are beyond excited to bring Mass Effect to Xbox Game Pass on December 1! One of the greatest single-player action RPGs of all-time, Mass Effect is a true classic that has aged extremely well. In Mass Effect, we follow the story of Commander Shepard, a 22nd century soldier assuming the tiny little mission of… saving the entire universe from a super race of ill-intentioned, mighty mechs. Choose from six different classes and level-up your character as you seek out and complete combat missions, resource gathering expeditions, and other side quests. Winner of multiple awards, Mass Effect is an incredible experience that we highly recommend you make time to check out in your journeys through the Xbox Game Pass catalog!
With over 100 great games, for just $9.99 a month, plus new games added every month, Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play. Thanks for reading December’s Xbox Game Pass update, and don’t forget, you can start your Xbox Game Pass membership for just $1 between November 17 – 27.
