Xbox Game Pass deal saves you $20 while giving you two free games

TODO alt text

Xbox Game Pass is arguably the closest thing we currently have to a "Netflix for video games" - a service which lets you gorge yourself on a veritable buffet of games in exchange for a monthly fee. For the remainder of September, you can get a year's membership for nearly 20% off while also securing yourself two fantastic games which are yours to keep forever, even if you don't renew your Game Pass subscription.

While I compared the service to Netflix, there is one major difference between Xbox Game Pass and the former proliferator of mail-in DVD slips: streaming (or rather, the lack thereof). With Game Pass, you download the entire game you want to play instead of streaming it. This means even if you don't have the fastest or most reliable internet, you can still enjoy a large selection of titles.

Though you'd typically lose access to these games once your subscription runs out, this particular deal includes Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 3, yours to keep in perpetuity. And with Forza Horizon 4 arriving on Xbox Game Pass the same day as it launches at retail (October 2), that gives you a lot of asphalt to burn and dirt to kick up.

Just this September, Xbox Game Pass added Halo: The Master Chief Collection (complete with new updates to matchmaking and graphics), Quantum Break, and Snake Pass, among others. But if you want to peruse the selection before committing your dollars, check out our list of every Xbox Game Pass game.
