Microsoft's video game subscription service is coming to PC.

Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft's popular video game subscription service, is coming to PC. This will give PC players similar access to a library of games for a single monthly subscription fee each month.

In a new blog post, Xbox boss Phil Spencer announced that Microsoft's Netflix-like video game subscription service will be coming to PC. However, based on the wording of the blog there could be some differences between the PC and Xbox version of Game Pass.

"[W]e designed a service specifically for the needs of PC gamers and PC game developers. It's called Xbox Game Pass, just like the original, but it's a new experience that we are building together with the PC community," Spencer writers.

Game Pass on PC will give players the same unlimited access to a library of over 100 PC games for Windows 10. However, Spencer notes that these games are from "well-known PC game developers" like Bethesda, Deep Silver, Devolver Digital, and Paradox. This suggests that the library of games on PC won't be one-to-one with its Xbox counterparts.

We reached out to Xbox to confirm whether or not Xbox Game Pass on PC will have a different library than on the Xbox.

Game Pass subscribers on PC will also have access to discounts on the Microsoft Store for up to 20% on games and 10% on DLC and add-ons.

Spencer says that specific game announcements for Xbox Game Pass PC will be revealed at E3 this year. So check out our E3 2019 schedule guide for all the info.
