Unfortunately, Metal Gear Solid 5 will only be in the Game Pass library till January 31st 2018.
Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, which allows players to stream roughly 100 games or so for the Xbox One, has received seven interesting additions to its library. They include Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Halo Wars Definitive Edition and Resident Evil HD as the bigger releases.
The remaining titles are just as incredible with Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, The World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap, Mega Man 9 and Sky Force Anniversary also joining the roster from November 1st onwards. Conditions apply when it comes to Metal Gear Solid 5 though – it will only be available in the Xbox Game Pass library until January 31st 2018. The other six games will remain forever.
Microsoft did clarify before Game Pass launched that some titles would be cycled out of the library though it didn’t list the criteria for certain games being removed. Perhaps it’s because of situations like this, especially if Konami sees that money can still be made out of Metal Gear Solid 5. Xbox Game Pass meanwhile costs $10 per month so it might be worth checking out.
