What Is An Xbox Game Pass?

We’ve recently just bought the family a new Xbox One, we’ve been meaning to upgrade our Xbox 360 for a long time, and once we got our head around the new features, we regret not getting one from the start. One of our family favourites is the Game Pass Library, the kids have been rediscovering some of their favourite LEGO games and me, and the man has been reliving our Sonic the Hedgehog days.
