Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service provides subscribers with access to a library of more than 100 games on Xbox consoles. Players can play these games to their heart’s content as long as they’re subscribed to the service. Many have been calling on Microsoft to bring this service to the PC as well and the company has obliged. Microsoft has confirmed Xbox Game Pass for PC today.
It’s essentially the same concept for PC as well. Subscribers will get access to a “curated library” of more than 100 PC games from many third-party developers such as Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda and Sega.
Xbox Game Pass for PC will give subscribers unlimited access to more than 100 games from well-known third-party developers. The company also said that it intends to include new first-party games from Xbox Game Studios in Xbox Game Pass for PC the day they’re released to the public. Subscribers will also receive discounts in the Microsoft Store on Windows of up to 20 percent on games currently in their library and up to 10 percent discount on related DLC and add-ons.
There are some details that Microsoft hasn’t confirmed at this point in time. For example, it hasn’t said how much Xbox Game Pass for PC is going to cost. It also hasn’t said whether you will be required to purchase separate subscriptions for Xbox Game Pass on both PC and console. The company says that it will talk more about this new service at its E3 2019 briefing next month.
