Xbox Game Pass for Windows has been officially announced by Microsoft ahead of this year’s E3 conference in Los Angeles.
Microsoft has confirmed that their flagship subscription program Xbox Game Pass is coming to PC.
Xbox Game Pass is being released for PC so that PC gamers can get the same great benefits as Xbox Gamers.
The subscription based service provides access to over 100 AAA titles such as the Gears of War series and Bio-Shock.
While it may be easy to dismiss this as Microsoft trying to make more money, what makes this exciting for PC gamers is that currently, only around 20 of the games listed for Xbox Game Pass are compatible with Windows with the rest being Xbox exclusives.
What this means is that a lot of games must be in transitional development to allow them to experienced via Windows 10.
That being said, there is currently no list of compatible games, no word on pricing or a release date.
This great news comes as Microsoft further progresses their console and PC integration agenda that we have seen slowly develop over the past few years and months.
Starting with Play Anywhere which allows a game to be played on either Xbox or PC we have seen some other developments in this area.
Xbox One also has a game streaming ability allowing gamers to play Xbox games on their PC via a data stream and last week also saw the launch of Xbox Game Bar for Windows 10.
Xbox Game Bar is a program for Windows 10 that allows real time adjustments to games being played on Windows 10 and brings some features such as Social and Chat from your Xbox console into your Windows experience.
Xbox Game Pass for Windows 10 has only just been announced and there is currently no set release date for the platform.
