Xbox Game Pass for PC

Post by Achtung Englander » Fri May 31, 2019 11:08 am

100+ games to start off with. Currently no detail on price or release date to the subscription. I expect it will run via a Win 10 app

No word on specific games? Wake me up when there's some actual information.

Guess Game Pass is officially coming to PC then...

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/05/30/ ... pc-gaming/

Catchily titled Xbox Game Pass for PC. More at E3.

Also Xbox Game Studios PC games are coming to other PC storefronts other than the horrendous Windows Store starting with Gears 5 and all the definitive editions of Age of Empires I, II and III.
Game Pass for PC priced at £4 per month...

Hmm, have to say I'm not happy if they are indeed charging a separate price.

I think it’s a bit daft if they don’t , too easy to account share.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

£4 a month is so cheap as to almost be a no-brainer. I wonder if that's going to be introductory pricing and the regular price will be closer to the XBox version.

I have to wonder whether they're going to pull one of those surprise launches tonight and have The Master Chief Collection available immediately for the PC gamepass. It'd be a headline grabber to launch the service on.

You can get the first month for £1 as well... that's nuts.

Is there anywhere to see the full catalogue? Saying that I'd pay it just for Metro Exodus and Senua's Sacrifice off the games I can see on the one screenshot I've seen.

its pretty knackered at the moment as the servers probably cannot handle the demand. I have given up downloading anything. I will give it a go in a couple of days. The app has got 2 stars. People are complaining.

They should of used Google's Stadia servers

boom boom tiss... :lol:
