5 reasons to sign up for Xbox Game Pass for PC

Xbox Game Pass for PC has quickly become one of the best gaming subscription services around.

Xbox Game Pass for PC is in beta but do not let that stop you. It is one of our favorite ways to enjoy games on PC.

1. It is super cheap!

$4.99 a month during the beta. It will be increased to $9.99 after the beta. This is incredible bang-for-buck. If you are still not convinced then the first month is just $1.

2. You can play Gears 5 and Outer Worlds!

Gears 5 is the latest title in the the epic series by The Coalition. Since this is a Xbox Game Studios game it is available today on Xbox Game Pass and has been since launch. What is even more amazing is that The Outer Worlds is available as well!

3. You'll get all of the first party Xbox Game Studio games as they are released.

That's right, any Xbox Game Studio game. This includes the upcoming Halo: Infinite title and Ori and the Will of the Wisps among many others. This goes for the Xbox version as well.

4. You can combine Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass

If you game on Xbox as well as PC then you can have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It combines Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox and PC. This means that you can have it ALL for just $15 a month. A great deal if you game on Xbox as well.

5. Xbox Game Pass has so many incredible titles.

It has such a staggering amount of great games. To name a few:

The Outer Worlds

The latest game from Obsidian is the spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas(also on Xbox Game Pass!). It is a colorful space opera. Very enjoyable quests and good combat. If you are aching for more good Fallout like game play then this is highly recommended.

Dead Cells

One of the best rogue likes we have played in years. It is sort of like a metroidvania meets rogue like with a slick movement scheme and progression system. It looks incredible and has a killer soundtrack!

Metro: Exodus

The latest game in the Metro series didn't quite live up the high expectations. It is a great game and one of the best looking ones on PC as well. The version does not include The Two Colonels DLC however. This is unfortunate because it was very well received and arguably better than the main game.

Forza Horizon 4

Another Xbox Game Studios game which makes it an exclusive for the Xbox One and Microsoft Windows as well as Xbox Game Pass. It is the latest game in the Forza series of driving games and it is just fantastic. The big word for this one is seasons. Each season dramatically changes the game play and the available races. It is a spectacular game to look at as well and runs like a dream on a powerful PC.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

A story-driven dark fantasy game about traveling Helheim to rescue the soul of your dead lover. While the game play is a bit repetitive the game is probably the best depiction of psychosis ever made in a game. It is  uncomfortable to play so be aware.


Wonderful metroidvania style games where you play as a Juan the luchador. It has a distinct art style and a ton of charm. The sequel is also available and that is just as good.Into the BreachA terrific run based puzzle game from the makers of Faster than Light(available on Origin Access). It has very charming graphics as well.
