Xbox Game Pass for PC is Officially Coming, More Info to be Revealed at E3
PC players will soon be able to subscribe to Microsoft's service that offers over 100 games for play all for a single price.
Microsoft has made no qualms in the past that it wants to bring its subscription service Xbox Game Pass to the PC platform and now, it looks like the company is finally deciding it’s time to make that leap.
As announced in a new blog post from Xbox head Phil Spencer today, Xbox Game Pass will soon be heading to the PC platform but has been somewhat reimagined. “We also considered the importance of bringing something new and additive to the PC gaming ecosystem, and we believe that we can. So, we designed a service specifically for the needs of PC gamers and PC game developers,” Spencer said in the post of the service coming to PC. “It’s called Xbox Game Pass, just like the original, but it’s a new experience that we are building together with the PC community.”
Much like its counterpart on Xbox One, Spencer said the PC iteration of Xbox Game Pass will again offer over 100 different titles to play at any given time from a variety of well-known publishers. In addition, first-party titles will also be coming to the PC version of Game Pass the same day that they release worldwide. Essentially, it seems to be the exact same service as we’re already familiar with, which is definitely a good thing considering how successful it has been.
Spencer ended the news on Xbox Game Pass coming to PC by stating that Microsoft will have more to share at its E3 2019 briefing including titles headed to the platform and a tease of when the service will go live. Until that time, stay tuned.
