It looks like Microsoft will replace Xbox Live Gold with a new subscription called “Xbox Game Pass Core.” The changeover is said to happen on September 1.

The Game Pass Core tier will reportedly cost the same as Xbox Live Gold. That means you can expect to pay $9.99 per month or $59.99 for a yearly subscription.

The new tier will reportedly allow subscribers to do online multiplayer and give them access to special Game Pass discounts and deals.

Subscribers will also get access to over 25 Game Pass titles
