There are many gaming subscription services these days, and they all have their own perks – but Xbox Game Pass continues to be the leader of the pack with a massive mix of titles to download and play.

The service is best known as being a console one, but it also happens to be one that you can get on PC. And while there are differences to the line-up on PC, you are still getting a massive collection of games and there is something there for everyone to enjoy.

For all the lowdown on what games are included and how Game Pass on PC works, read on! And don’t forget that all Xbox exclusive releases get added on the day that they come out, so keep an eye on our video game release schedule to see what games are on the way.

How does Xbox Game Pass on PC work?

Much like the console version of Game Pass, the PC version is really simple to navigate. Just sign up on the official Xbox site, and be sure to take advantage of the £1 Xbox sign up offer. Once the signup process is complete, you’ll get access to all the games available.

There’s a handy app, simply called Xbox Game Pass, which you’ll be able to download for free. This will let you see and search through the collection of games that’ll run on your PC.

Just download the ones you want, and once they are installed, you just play as normal. You can continue to play it as long as each game remains part of the Xbox Game Pass library – and you will normally get a good amount of notice before a game is removed.

Which Xbox Game Pass games work on PC?

There are a huge amount of games that will work on the PC from the Xbox Game Pass library ranging from big hitters such as the latest Forza and Gears games to smaller titles such as Celeste and Ape Out – there are games that you can only play on PC too.

We’ve listed every single game available right now further down the page so you can see all there is to play – and there are quite a few games there.

Is EA Play on Xbox Game Pass on PC?

Yes, EA Play is included as part of Xbox Game Pass on PC. This was not the case until recently, but as of March, EA Play’s selection of games have been added to the PC Game Pass library. So you can now play the likes of FIFA and Plants Vs Zombies on your gaming PC, as part of an active Game Pass subscription.

Does Xbox Game Pass on PC work with Steam?

At the time of writing, Steam does not have the Xbox Game Pass library, but rumour/wishful thinking suggests that could be about to change. There have been a lot of whispers that Xbox Game Pass will be added to the popular Steam launcher in the future, and we are beginning to think we could see it happen by the end of 2021. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
