Today Microsoft revealed that its new Xbox One game subscription service will be available on June 1st. Called Game Pass, the service was first announced back in February, and it offers access to more than 100 Xbox One and 360 games for $9.99 per month. (You can check out the full list here.)

Unlike PlayStation Now, which offers streaming for a range of games, Game Pass will let subscribers download the included games. They’ll also have the option to purchase titles at a discount if they want. The current lineup includes games like Halo 5 and Gears of War 3, and Microsoft says it will continue to grow over time. “Each month, Xbox Game Pass will add a new set of games to the catalog so there is always something new to play across a diversity of experiences, genres, ratings, and more,” the company says.

While Game Pass will be available to everyone in June, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get early access to the service starting today.
