Microsoft has announced a change to its Xbox Live Gold subscription pricing policy, which will allow gamers to get a specific set of titles for free every month, as well as have access to online multiplayer.
Microsoft refers to this decision as evaluating the value of its services, and also links it to economic changes in certain markets. The company noted that in some territories the price of Live Gold has not changed for over a decade.
- Month – $ 10.99 ($ 1 increase)
- Three months – $ 29.99 ($ 5 increase)
- Six months – $ 59.99 ($ 20 increase)
The half-year cost now equals the twelve-month plan, however Microsoft hasn’t offered that option since last year.
Users who already have six or twelve months of Xbox Live Gold will not be affected.
Microsoft also shared its February selection of games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers:
- Gears 5
- Resident evil
- Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition
- Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb
- Lost Planet 2
