Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has announced that Microsoft will be bringing its Xbox Game Pass service to PC in the future.
The pass will offer “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.” In addition, just as with the Xbox version of the pass, all new games from Xbox Game Studios will be available in the pass on the same day they launch.
As well as the above, subscribers will get 20 percent off games included in the pass and 10 percent off related DLC. More information will be shared during Microsoft’s E3 Briefing on June 9th at 1 p.m. PT.
Microsoft also revealed that it will be bringing more than 20 Xbox Game Studios titles to Steam, starting with Gears 5 and all Age of Empires Definitive Editions.
“Enabling gamers to play together, through cross-platform play and cross-network play across Windows 10 PCs and console, is vitally important,” Spencer said. “Building communities across all of those players, regardless of the store or platform they’ve chosen (console or PC), is also vitally important because it helps bring players together, allows games to find their largest audience and allows gaming to deliver its true potential of uniting people around the power of play.
“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. We believe you should have choice in where you buy your PC games.”
Finally, Microsoft announced that it will be enabling full support for native Win32 games on the Microsoft Store.
