Beta expected to roll out soon
[Update: Microsoft had a bit more to say about Xbox Game Pass at E3 today, likethe fact that Imperator Rome and Football Manager 2019 will make it to PC Game Pass. It’ll launch in open beta today.]
Several hours ahead of its official E3 press conference, Microsoft has opened the subscription pages for upcoming services Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass on PC, which offer player access to a selection of great titles for a monthly fee.
Xbox Game Pass PC will run at a slim $5/£4 a month and will have over 100 titles in its archive. Games spotted include Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, We Happy Few (maybe skip that one), Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 and Forza Horizon. Upcoming additions will include Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Ori and the Blind Forest and even Gears 5. There is also an ongoing Resetera thread that has dug up slots for Shenmue I & II, Hollow Knight, The Messenger and SteamWorld Dig 2, among others.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will run at a fee of around $15/£11 a month and will offer subscribers access to the same library alongside all of the benefits of an Xbox Live Gold account, such as access to multiplayer, free games every month, and selected discounts on games and DLC in the Xbox online store. It should also be noted that the Ultimate plan automatically includes Game Pass PC.
Signups for the services are open right now, with huge discount allowing you to get your first month for just $1/£1. The beta for Game Pass PC will go live in the near future, with details expected at today’s E3 press conference, so be sure to tune into that, here on Destructoid, at 13:00 PT / 16:00 ET / 21:00 BST.
