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 weve 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. Its called Xbox Game Pass, just like the original, but its 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. Were working with over 75 developers and publishers to bring PC content to the service and well 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 youll experience the new Xbox Game Pass service for PC gamers.
