Hey, Xbox Game Pass friends! E3 has come to a close and we’re still buzzing here like a kid with a king-sized candy bar. We’ve launched Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta), brought over 100 new games to the Xbox Game Pass library across console and PC, and got called breathtaking by Keanu Reeves. We’re still reeling from that one.
There is so much more that went down so here’s the TLDR:
- At E3, we announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will also include Xbox Game Pass for PC… with no increase in price. So you can get your first month of Ultimate for $1 right now and play over 100 high quality PC games with our new Xbox (Beta) app for Windows 10. Get started here, where you can download our handy installer which will make sure your PC is compatible and on the latest version of Windows 10, and will install the new Xbox (Beta) app.
- With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, members will get access to Gears 5 Ultimate Edition, including all the benefits like the Ultimate Edition Character Pack, 30 Days of Boost, early access to play four days earlier than everyone else, and all Xbox Game Pass members have a hall pass to be the first to play Gears 5 via the tech test in July. Play the entire Gears of War anthology with Xbox Game Pass so you’re on top of your game when the time comes.
- State of Decay 2 dropped its biggest expansion yet with Heartland, and it’s 100% free to all Xbox Game Pass members! You can thank us after you survive the blood plague ferals…
- This isn’t new news, but since many of you may be new fans, we want to remind you that all Xbox Game Pass members get exclusive member discounts, like up to 20% off games in the library, and up to 10% off related add-ons and consumables. So, go snap up stuff like the brand-new Forza Horizon 4 LEGO Speed Champions for 10% less!
So yeah, lots of great things happened at E3, but we’ve still got more to come! We may have dropped a ton of games on you last week, but new games are kind of our thing, so we’ve still got a few more for you. Here’s what’s coming to console and PC in the next couple weeks:
- Resident Evil: Revelations (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate)
- Rare Replay (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate)
- Torment: Tides of Numenera (Xbox Game Pass for PC, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate)
- Goat Simulator (Xbox Game Pass for PC, Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate)
We add new games all the time, but to keep the library curated and fresh for you, we do have to let go of some beloved titles. Here is your warning that some of these games are leaving soon, so play them now! Or if you love them too much to part with them, don’t forget you can use your Xbox Game Pass member discount to buy them at up to 20% off before they go.
