Xbox Game Pass Heading To PC, Says Microsoft CEO
Gamers everythere have been enjoying Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, which is a Netflix-like subscription service that allows fans to enjoy over 100 games for the very reasonable $10/month. New adventures are being added all the time, and one of the biggest bonuses is that first-party titles are available on Game Pass on launch day. That said, it looks like the company is expanding the service to PC.
Many on PC might already know that Xbox Play Anywhere games are available on the platform through Game Pass due to their ability to be played anywhere. However, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently took the time during an earnings call to announce that Xbox Game Pass is coming to PC. How remains a mystery.
Considering Play Anywhere titles can be accessed through the service on PC, there is a chance that this announcement means they’ll be putting a focus on marketing for the platform. Of course, it’s possible that they’ll open the flood gates and allow PC players to access the entirety of the Xbox Game Pass library. Expanding the subscription service could also mean that PC exclusives might have a chance to be available for the $10/month price tag.
For those unaware of Xbox Game Pass, here’s more:
“For one low monthly price, enjoy unlimited access to over one hundred great Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles. With so many games to discover and download, your Xbox experience will never be the same.
Xbox Game Pass members can save up to 20% on Xbox One games purchased from the existing catalog, as well as up to 10% off any Xbox One game add-ons. Discounts are based on the Microsoft Store price and are tiered based on the game’s global launch date. Between 31 and 90 days from a game’s launch date, members receive up to a 10% discount off the Microsoft Store price. After 90 days from a game’s launch date, members receive a 20% discount. For game add-ons, Xbox Game Pass members receive up to a 10% discount from the day the add on is released.”
