It’s official, Microsoft is finally bringing the Xbox Game Pass subscription service to PC players all around the globe.
Finally, Microsoft is embracing PC gaming. As most of us now, this gaming giant never wanted much to do with anything that wasn’t Xbox. It seems like the times are finally changing. The Xbox Game Pass is coming to PC, as Microsoft announced in a post. Strange for them to start talking about supporting PC gaming now, but they did say that their support wasn’t that impactful before. Guess they figured that a lot of PC gamers use their OS, so why wouldn’t they make it as friendly to gamers as possible?
Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that lets players pick from a huge library of games. All you have to do is pay a small monthly fee. You also get up to 20% on certain titles and up to 10% off certain DLC and add-ons. A lot of famous developers and publishers put their games on this service (including giants like Paradox Interactive, Bethesda, Deep Silver, SEGA, and so on).
This is what they said at the beginning of their post:
We believe the player should be at the center of their gaming experience and be able to harness the unique benefits of the devices they choose to play on.
Nowhere is that belief more important than on the PC. As the creators of Windows, we have a unique responsibility to ensure we’re investing in experiences that benefit players everywhere, while respecting the PC community’s preference for an open, highly customizable platform.
First, we found out the Halo: The Master Chief Collection is on its way to the PC, and now this. Seems like this is a great year for PC gaming!
