Everyone knows that Microsoft now has a video game subscription service for their console. The subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, allows players to play games for free as long as they are subscribed. Well, today Microsoft has added one of its best titles to the subscription service: Grand Theft Auto V.

It has been over several years now since the game originally launched (in fact, the game originally came out for the last generation of consoles), and yet it remains one of the most popular games out there today. Tons of people are still playing it, and for the first time in a long while, people who never bought the game can actually get a chance to try it out without actually buying it.

This is great news too because Grand Theft Auto V also comes with the ability to play the amazing Grand Theft Auto Online, which is constantly being updated and comes with all kinds of great new features.

One of those features is the recent update called the Diamond Resort and Casino, which includes a cool new questline called the Diamond Casino Heist. That update plays a bit like an Ocean’s Eleven spin-off but in the Grand Theft Auto universe.

One of the coolest features of the latest patches is the fact that the Diamond Heist requires a sort of front for setting up the actual heist, and this front actually takes the form of an arcade. So players will get a whole host of fun arcade games that come with the latest patch. Tons of games inside of the game.

But Grand Theft Auto V is also just one of the most popular games out there, even now. Its sales have been no joke for years, which goes to show that gamers are willing to pay for quality even years after its actually developed. This really says something in the age of microtransactions.

While players on the PlayStation and Microsoft Windows will not get the same opportunity, the game is truly great on every medium where it has shown up for gameplay. It is truly a testament to Rockstar, which came out with Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2018.

Be sure to check it out if you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, this might be one of those few chances to get to play something as great as this without having to buy it. It sounds like a great time.
