The Xbox Game Pass for PC is two things: firstly, it’s quite a mouthful; and secondly, it’s the new subscription service by Microsoft that gives you access to a bunch of games from the Microsoft Store for a monthly price. New games are being added each month, and we’ve got details of all the Xbox Game Pass games in August 2019, as well as the full Xbox Game Pass game list for PC.

Upcoming Xbox Game Pass games

These games are confirmed to be coming to Xbox Game Pass at some point in the future:

  • Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition
  • Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition
  • Battletoads
  • Bleeding Edge
  • Dead Cells (September 5th)
  • Gears 5
  • Gears Tactics
  • Halo Infinite
  • Halo: The Master Chief Collection
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator
  • Minecraft Dungeons
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  • The Outer Worlds
  • Stellaris (Coming Soon)
  • Wasteland 3

Not a bad lineup by any stretch of the imagination, I’d say. So you’ll have access to all these games for the $1 trial cost, plus the $4.99 (or $9.99 out of beta) monthly cost.

Xbox Game Pass for PC – subscription prices

The Xbox Game Pass site tells us the crucial info regarding prices and recurring monthly costs, so let’s get right into it:

  • You can trial the Game Pass for 1 month for $1 using the Beta App (which we’ll get into in a moment).
  • While the Game Pass is in “beta”, the recurring cost will be $4.99 per month.
  • After the Game Pass leaves “beta”, the recurring cost will be $9.99 per month.
  • You can also get the Ultimate Game Pass for $14.99 per month, which includes the Game Pass for both Xbox One and PC, and throws in an Xbox Live Gold membership for your console to boot.

It’s so far unclear how long the $1 offer will last, nor how long the Game Pass for PC will be in its “beta” phase. We’ll update this page as soon as we do know. But regardless, let’s now take a look at the games you’ll be given access to play in exchange for this subscription.

Xbox Game Pass Beta App & setup

So how d’you go about setting up this service for your own PC? Well, first you’ll need to download the Beta App from here by clicking the green “DOWNLOAD THE APP” button. You’ll also need to be a Windows 10 user. No way around that caveat, I’m afraid. And you may need to update Windows before the Beta App will deem your PC a worthy place to set up shop. You’ll be told if Windows needs an update, and if this is the case for you then all you need to do is follow the instructions that appear on-screen after you’ve run the app.

You’ll also need to head over to the Xbox Game Pass site and, you know, actually subscribe to the service. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to sign into your account using the Beta App, and under the Game Pass tab at the top of the screen, you’ll be able to access all of the above games that are included in the Pass for PC. Simple!
