Xbox Game Pass Coming to Windows 10

A tweet from Xbox announces that the Xbox Game Pass is coming to PCs. They say this will offer "Unlimited access to 100+ high-quality PC games from over 75 content partners." They promise more details at their E3 briefing on June 9th, and in the meantime offer this rundown on the plan, where Microsoft clarifies that this will be for their favorite child, Windows 10. But they also outline plans to bring more than 20 Xbox Game Studios titles on Steam, "starting with Gears 5 and all Age of Empires I, II & III: Definitive Editions." Here's word:
Two years ago, we launched Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One, and since then we’ve seen how valuable a curated library of high-quality games can be for players and game developers alike. It offers a great way to discover and play your next favorite game. We researched whether a similar opportunity exists for PC players and PC game developers, and we believe that it does. 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. 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.

Xbox Game Pass for PC will give players unlimited access to a curated library of over 100 high-quality PC games on Windows 10, from well-known PC game developers and publishers such as Bethesda, Deep Silver, Devolver Digital, Paradox Interactive, SEGA, and more. 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.

Xbox Game Pass for PC members will also receive discounts in the Microsoft Store on Windows of up to 20% on games currently in the library and up to 10% off related game DLC and add-ons.

We look forward to sharing more at E3, including the great games coming to the library, as well as more details on when and how you’ll experience the new Xbox Game Pass service for PC gamers.

Sounds good in theory ,.. but I just can't put any trust or faith in these idiots from being screwed over so many times & then being told over and over again about them RE_dedicating to PC gamers.

Actions speak louder than words and this is them doing something positive for a change.

It's Microsoft though. They are definitely a fair weather friend, so it's prudent to be cautious.

You're not going out on a blind date or something here. Just subscribe if you want to and cancel if they tank it. "Be cautious" lol come on JD.

Err this is nothing like GFWL. It's just a subscription game service where you can pay a modest monthly fee and you get access to a pile of games. Some of them good, some bad and some indies. Games cycle in and out monthly much like Netflix with its content deals. You don't stream them, you just download and play them locally. Whether its a good deal or not depends entirely on your taste and whatnot.

Also I really like Microsoft putting their stuff on as many platforms as possible instead of siloing it all off which is what they did before. I think Spencer has realized they are just one more bad console from being totally obsolete in the gaming industry and instead he's spreading their catalog to the Switch, PC and etc which is frankly better for everyone.

Yup, agreed. I think this is a good thing. Some people's mileage may vary depending on taste vs the games in the pass, but overall I like it.

Of course, this being the gaming industry, one day all publishers will release their games solely through subscription services because they're a bunch of fucking idiots, but we'll deal with that bridge when the time comes.

I was hoping that if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass you get it for both Xbox and PC, but that doesn't sound like the case. With Xbox Game Pass subscribers can already play Microsoft's newest releases on the PC so that better not change when this launches.

I've definitely gotten a lot of value out of Xbox Game Pass but I don't think I'd pay for an additional one for PC. There's just too many games to play and I don't have time for even more.

I’m assuming it means that the current Gamepass will still work as expected and will include a ton more games for PC users than before. My wife and I used gamepass to play through Crackdown 3, which was fun, if a bit visually outdated and stuck at 30 FPS. She also used the time to play forza4 with me (I bought it, she’s less interested). F4 has better multiplayer features than 3, but a less interesting world to drive around in. Pretty sure they hit their apex with FH3 and its gleefully absurd Hot Wheels expansion.
