Microsoft announced the launch of a new Xbox Game Pass for PCs. The company plans to offer a subscription-based model to PC gamers allowing them to enjoy over 100 games.
They upcoming Game Pass PC version will work on a similar pattern to the Xbox console. You can download, install and play games on your PC.
However, you need to have a compatible gaming PC to enjoy the new subscription-based Game Pass service.
The new service is going to expand the existing gaming capabilities of your PC.
Currently, the Xbox Game Pass only supports some titles released by Microsoft on Windows PCs. Microsoft already started to work on this project.
The company is working to include Sega, Deep Silver, Bethesda, Paradox Interactive and Devolver Digital in a collaboration with more than 75 developers.
Microsoft promised that the PC Game Pass will offer titles on the same day of their official release day. Surprising, you will get a discount of 10 percent on the purchase of some specific games with DLC. You will also get a discount of 20 percent on purchase from Microsoft Store.
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. 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.
No subscription plans announced yet
However, Microsoft has not shared some important details regarding the project. We don’t have any idea about the pricing.
We already know that Xbox offers a monthly subscription of $10 with a limited set of titles. Therefore, we can expect Microsoft to set a price range of $15-20 to offer more than 100 games on the PC.
Additionally, it remains to be seen if Xbox One Game Pass users can use their existing subscription to access the games on their PC. There is a slight possibility that Microsoft may force them to purchase two different subscriptions.
Microsoft has yet to announce the complete list of games available on the new game pass.
