Game Pass for PC Beta Coming

Ahead of Microsoft’s E3 Briefing today, the company revealed that their Game Pass Service for PC will launch at a price of $4.99 per month.

The service will launch in a beta format, with more than 100 games being promised at launch from more than 75 developers. The service will be open to PC users of Windows 10, with the game downloadable on player computers and playable. It’s currently not known whether or not the service will integrate with xCloud, the company’s streaming service.

A partial list of game highlights being offered includes Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Halo Wars, Gears 5, Crackdown 3, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Shenmue I & II.

Microsoft is poised to have a huge E3 showing, as rival Sony has decided to skip the conference this year. The Redmond based company is reportedly set to unveil new game hardware as well as the above-mentioned xCloud service.

Additionally, it’s likely that additional Game Pass titles will be announced at the show, as all Microsoft first party titles will be offered on the service at their launch. This was the case on the Xbox consoles, as hits like Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, and Forza Horizon have all appeared on release day.
