During E3 in Las Vegas, Microsoft announced the launch of its streaming service for video games also for Windows 10 platform
Microsoft has officially unveiled the new Xbox Game Pass for Windows 10, PC version of its successful subscription online gaming service. To surprise are two things above all: the price, very low, and the game catalog, very large and high level.
In addition, to launch the service also to PC gamers, Microsoft has imposed a price of only 1 euro for the first month trial. It is, however, the beta of the service. This means that in the early days something might not work 100%. However, since the beta, you will be able to play over 100 titles (and many more are on the way) at a discounted price, which will then increase. For the rest, Xbox Pass for PC will be identical to the console version: same discounts and the same way to buy games.
Xbox Game Pass for Windows 10: how much it costs
As already mentioned, the launch price for the first month of Xbox Game Pass for PC is only 1 euro. After that it will cost more, but still very little: just 3.99 euros per month versus the 9.99 euros needed for the console version. The discounted price depends on the fact that the service is in beta, when the final and stable version will be online it will probably be equal to that of the console version. Subscribers have unlimited access to more than 100 games, immediate access to Xbox Game Studios titles, discounts such as 10% for DLC.
Xbox Game Pass for Windows 10: system requirements
What will not please many users, however, is the fact that to play many titles you need the latest version of Windows 10. That is, the 1903, the one from the May Update that many still can't download due to technical problems. Among the hardware requirements to play the best Microsoft recommends an Intel Core i5-8300H or AMD Ryzen 5 3550H processor, a Nvidia GTX 1050 or AMD Radeon RX 560 video card, 8 GB of RAM and 3 GB of video memory and, above all 150 GB of disk storage space. With this hardware, the gaming resolution is 1080p.
