One of the best services Microsoft has brought to the Xbox platform is Xbox Game Pass where you pay a monthly fee for over 100 games from AAA, first-party exclusives, and your favorite indie games. It has been already two years since the service was introduced and now they have announced the XGP is coming to PC.
Xbox Game Pass for PC is just like the original for console, but it will be a new experience that they are building together with the PC community. The service will come with over 100 high-quality PC games on Windows 10 and it’ll be partnered with companies like Bethesda, Devolver Digital, SEGA, Paradox Interactive, Deep Silver and there’s a bunch more. In the future when new titles from Xbox Game Studios launch they will be available for the service the same day as release so you don’t have to wait for it to be added.
Microsoft had stated they are working with over 75 developers and publishers to bring PC content to the service. One of the other pros about Xbox Game Pass coming to PC is that members will receive discounts in the Microsoft Store on Windows of up to 20% on games currently in the library and up to 10% off related game DLC.
Back in March it was announced that Halo: MCC would be coming to PC after being highly requested by the community. Today, Phil Spencer confirmed that Gears 5 and all Age of Empires I, II, and III: Definitive Editions will be hitting the PC platform as well. Here is what the Head of Xbox had to say about this:
“We know millions of PC gamers trust Steam as a great source to buy PC games and we’ve heard the feedback that PC gamers would like choice. We also know that there are other stores on PC, and we are working to enable more choice in which store you can find our Xbox Game Studios titles in the future.”
June 9th marks the day of the Xbox E3 2019 Briefing and we could expect to see more about Xbox Game Pass for PC such as when it’ll launch.
