Xbox Game Pass is coming to PC with more than 100 games

Xbox Game Pass is coming to Windows 10, but many questions remain

With that in mind, our intent is to make our Xbox Game Studios PC games available in multiple stores, including our own Microsoft Store on Windows, at their launch.

Xbox Game Pass for PC will give players unlimited access to a curated library of over 100 high-quality PC games on Windows 10, from well-known PC game developers and publishers such as Bethesda, Deep Silver, Devolver Digital, Paradox Interactive, SEGA, and more. Announced in a blog post this morning, Microsoft is introducing Game Pass for PC but won't reveal everything until June 9th.

Obviously, there is the exclusivity window that will need to be addressed with new and unreleased titles, but Microsoft now plans to make Gears 5, all Age of Empires, and 20 more undisclosed titles readily available in the Steam store soon. According to people familiar with company plans, the PC version of Game Pass will be included with Ultimate Game Pass that was announced earlier this year for no additional cost.

Spencer added: "We know millions of PC gamers trust Steam as a great source to buy PC games and we've heard the feedback that PC gamers would like choice".

If anybody prefers to buy their games on the Microsoft Store, well, you can keep right on truckin'.

Eventually, Halo: MCC will be joined on Steam by "more than 20 Xbox Game Studios titles", beginning with Gears of War 5 and the definitive editions of Age of Empires 1, 2 and 3. This means many more games will be able to go up for sale on the Microsoft Store soon. We also considered the importance of bringing something new and additive to the PC gaming ecosystem, and we believe that we can.

Many gamers don't like UWP games because they're locked down, meaning players can't tweak the games and install mods - something many PC gamers are passionate about. The company made the decision therefore to enable "full support for native win32 games" in the Microsoft Store on Windows. But the former, more-established format has persisted as a favorite and Microsoft is giving the developers what they want.
