We cannot say that the price increase for a subscription service is very pleasant. However, despite its rising price, Xbox Game Pass for PC continues to host many beautiful games. The service offers free access to any game developed by Microsoft since the day it was opened. It also offers access to third-party games from publishers such as Bethesda, Sega and Deep Silver. You have the opportunity to try games that you will never buy before.
Meanwhile, EA Play will be added to Xbox Game Pass PC as part of the subscription by the end of the year. Thus, a 10-hour trial version will be available for new games such as Battlefield V, Mass Effect, The Sims 4 and FIFA 21 published by Electronic Arts.
If you own both an Xbox One and a gaming PC, you may want to consider an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. This package also offers access to over 200 games for Xbox One. You also own Xbox Live Gold, so you can take advantage of services such as online gaming or party chats on Xbox One. Android device owners will also be able to access Microsoft’s cloud gaming service xCloud.
