Microsoft Ends $1 Game Pass Trial Prior to Starfield Debut

The Popular $1 Game Pass Trial Is Removed Once Again

In a surprising move, Xbox has taken a decisive step ahead of the highly-anticipated launch of Starfield on Friday, September 1st. The game was slated to be available on the Xbox Game Pass from day one. However, it appears that gamers won’t be able to access the title through the popular $1 Game Pass trial option.

This isn’t the first time the $1 Game Pass trial has faced removal. Earlier this year, it was briefly taken down only to make a comeback. As Starfield’s release date looms closer, the trial option has once again been removed.

The decision has left fans speculating about the potential reasons behind Xbox’s move. Some speculate it might be related to the sheer magnitude of Starfield’s launch, with Xbox possibly looking to capitalize on the game’s popularity without offering it as part of a trial promotion. Others believe it could be a strategic maneuver to encourage players to opt for full Game Pass subscriptions.

As the gaming community eagerly anticipates the Friday launch, Xbox’s latest decision has added an unexpected twist to the excitement. Whether this move will impact the game’s reception or Game Pass subscription rates remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure: Starfield’s journey to the stars continues to be filled with surprises, both in-game and out.
