Microsoft announces Xbox Game Pass for PC

Microsoft has just announced that is bringing a new version of its popular subscription service to PC in the form of Xbox Games Pass for PC.

As per the full announcement by Xbox head Phil Spencer, though the service will share the same name as the currently existing service for Xbox One, it'll be especially tailored to the PC, with more than 100 games from over 75 partners, including games from Sega, Paradox Interactive, Devolver and Bethesda to name a few.

Just as it is with the Xbox Game Pass service on console, it'll include a mix of older and new titles, including new titles from Xbox Games Studios – Xbox's first party titles – day and date with their launches from release. Furthermore, and specific to the PC version, subscribers will enjoy a discount of up to 20% off games and 10% off DLC in the Microsoft Store on Windows.

Spencer also laid out Microsoft's further commitment to the PC, revealing that as well as the previously announced Halo: the Master Chief Collection, it is currently working on bringing more than 20 Xbox Games Studios titles to Steam including the upcoming Gears 5.

There's no word on pricing as of yet or which specific games will be in the Xbox Game Pass for PC, but Microsoft has confirmed it'll reveal further details during its E3 briefing on June 9 at 9pm UK time.
