Xbox Game Pass for PC Games List Appears Ahead of E3 Announcement

Game Pass for PC Shows Up on Microsoft Store

We knew that Microsoft was planning to officially launch its Xbox Game Pass for PC service during today’s E3 Press Conference, but we didn’t yet have a list of which PC games will be included in the service. With the press conference still about 8 hours away, however, details of Games Pass for PC are starting to leak via the Microsoft Store.

Store listings of games that will be part of the subscription service on the PC are now displaying a “Included with Xbox Game Pass PC Games” badge above the purchase button, similar to how Microsoft informs users of Xbox console games that are included in the initial console-only iteration of the service.

A Microsoft Store listing also indicates that new users will be able to subscribe to the service for $1.00 for their first month with a regular price of $4.99 per month. If accurate, that compares to a price of $10 per month for the original console-based service, although it remains to be seen if Microsoft will offer a discounted package deal for both PC and console versions.

Like their console-only counterparts, Game Pass PC subscribers will be able to browse and download included games via the Microsoft Store app in Windows 10 or the dedicated Xbox Game Pass app. From Microsoft’s Game Pass PC press release late last month:

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.

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 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.
