Microsoft Announces Xbox Game Pass for PC

Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Game Pass subscription service will be arriving on PC. The service will still be called Xbox Game Pass and will run on a simular subscription model as the original.

Phil Spencer described the service as giving players “unlimited access to a curated library of over 100 high-quality PC games on Windows 10”, with developers Bethesda, Devolver Digital, SEGA, and more confirmed to bring titles to the service.

Microsoft has also committed to providing a place for communities to grow and to focus on cross-platform gaming, with Spencer stating “building communities across all of those players, regardless of the store or platform they’ve chosen (console or PC), is also vitally important because it helps bring players together, allows games to find their largest audience and allows gaming to deliver its true potential of uniting people around the power of play.”

Spencer also announced that more Microsoft titles will be headed to PC, on Steam and the Microsoft Store. Gears of War 5 and the entirety of Age of Empires I, II & III: Definitive Editions will be available on other platforms to further give players a choice in providers.

Those who sign up for Xbox Game Pass on PC will also receive up to 20% off of games in the Microsoft Store and up to 10% off related DLC.

Microsoft did not announce a release date or pricing options for Xbox Game Pass on PC but did state that more information will be available at E3, including a larger list of titles coming to the service.
