  • Xbox Game Pass first-party release day availability also works on PC

Also known as "Netflix for Xbox", Xbox Game Pass is presently limited to Xbox One consoles.

The service may also be an attractive selling point for prospective Xbox owners who can catch up on games they may have missed and play new games for a pretty low monthly fee. It's always been a neat little extra, but as of this week it's evolving into something much more useful. Microsoft's move involves just its own releases, and while that may eat into physical sales for Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 in the coming months, the real pain will come if more popular third-party Xbox releases follow suit. After getting beaten out by Sony during that fateful E3 Microsoft has really kicked it into overdrive - competition is good!

What we mean is that, while a game forms the Play Anywhere program, Xbox Game Pass users can enjoy it on Xbox One and PC.

Even future video games from the Halo, Gears of War and Forza franchises will be playable from day-one of release on Xbox Game Pass.


Following yesterday's announcement of Xbox One exclusives being added to the Xbox Game Pass, Greenberg took to Twitter to answer some questions from fans regarding the subscription.

Xbox Division Boss Phil Spencer announced a major change regarding the Xbox Game Pass.

Our fans have also asked for more choice in the subscription offerings available for Xbox Game Pass. We've listened to our community and are excited to be bringing this new console to Indian gamers. Still, this new initiative from Microsoft is very generous and will entice more people to play games digitally from now on. It is available for purchase through Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Landmark, and Microsoft India stores, in addition to over 100 speciality gaming stores in the country.
