There's a good chance Microsoft will have more games to reveal in May, considering the new game arrivals stop halfway through the month.
Offering access to over 100 games, the Xbox Game Pass subscription normally costs $9.99 per month. However, Microsoft is currently offering three months of service for a single dollar to anyone who's currently not subscribed.
The company is also planning to introduce a new "Ultimate" subscription service later this year that will combine Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for $14.99 per month.
