Microsoft‘s Xbox division said on Tuesday it would launch a $9.99-per-month subscription service that will allow gamers to play over 100 Xbox One and “backward compatible” Xbox 360 video games.

The service, “Xbox Game Pass,” will allow subscribers to download games directly to a console and play them online as well as offline, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, said in a blog post.

The subscription will only be available on Microsoft’s Xbox One (MSFT) video game console and devices running its Windows 10 operating system.

The service, which will launch later this spring, will include games such as LEGO Batman, Microsoft’s Halo 5: Guardians, and Take-Two Interactive Software’s NBA 2K16.

“Xbox Game Pass” subscribers will also be able to buy games in the catalog at a discount.
