Microsoft is bringing Xbox Game Pass to PC and earlier the company released some details with the promise to share more at E3 2019. But thanks to insider reports, we now know how Microsoft may be planning to handle Game Pass for PC. According to Brad Sams, the newly revealed Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will include Game Pass for PC.
Microsoft will share the news at E3 2019 and while this is exciting news, we aren’t sure how Microsoft is going to model the standalone PC Game. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate was introduced last month as a new subscription top-tier subscription service.
Ultimate Game Pass brings together Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass to create a single package. The subscribers can reap all the benefits from both Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass via a single monthly payment.
Xbox Live Gold — With Xbox Live Gold players have the ability to play online multiplayer over Xbox Live. Subscribers also get 4 free games every month with Xbox Live Gold and discounts on purchases made via Xbox Live Marketplace. Weekly sales offer a great benefit to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
Xbox Game Pass — Xbox Game Pass offers ultimate access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games via backward compatibility. It is a monthly subscription service that also gives 20% discount on Xbox One games and a 10% discount on related add-ons for games within the program.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate — For $14.99 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate brings together Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One players. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will soon be available in all Xbox Game Pass regions.
Now imagine paying for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and getting access to Xbox Game Pass for PC as well. It’ll be a great deal and hopefully, Brad Sams’ insider information is correct. Unfortunately, we won’t know until E3 2019.
We know that PC gamers want to see games, so I hope you’ll join us at our annual Xbox E3 2019 Briefing on Sunday, June 9 to hear more, including the amazing lineup of new games and offers to come to PC players.
Majority of Xbox first-party games release on Xbox One and PC at the same time. While Microsoft promised to bring its games to Steam, giving players an incentive like Game Pass PC can definitely bring PC players to Windows 10 Store. Microsoft had aimed to unify Windows 10 PC gaming and Xbox for years. Xbox Game Pass for PC is a major step in the right direction for the Redmond tech giant.
