Xbox Game Pass coming to PC

Microsoft is bringing its Xbox Game Pass subscription service, which offers access to a vast library of Xbox One games for a monthly fee, to Windows PC. Instead of console games, however, Xbox Game Pass for PC will offer “a curated library of over 100 high-quality PC games on Windows 10,” Microsoft announced Thursday.

A statement from Phil Spencer, executive vice president of gaming at Microsoft, called Xbox Game Pass for PC “a new experience that we are building together with the PC community.”

Microsoft says that its list of more than 100 PC games will come from publishers like Bethesda Softworks, Deep Silver, Devolver Digital, Paradox Interactive, and Sega.

“And just as we committed on the console, it is our intent to include new games from Xbox Game Studios in Xbox Game Pass for PC the same day as their global release, including titles from newly acquired studios like Obsidian and inXile,” Spencer said. “We’re working with over 75 developers and publishers to bring PC content to the service and we’ll ensure the library remains curated and full of great PC titles across a variety of genres, with new games added every month.”

Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers will also get a discount on games and downloadable content via the Microsoft Store on Windows: “up to 20% on games currently in the library and up to 10% off related game DLC and add-ons.”

The company did not announce a launch date or pricing for Xbox Game Pass for PC. Microsoft said it plans to share more about Xbox Game Pass for PC at E3 2019 on June 9.
