"[But] we've not always lived up to our aspiration of keeping gamers at the center of everything we do when it comes to the experience they've had on Windows". 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.
Xbox Game Pass for PC will bring over 100 games to Windows 10, which players can download and play for a flat monthly subscription.
This Xbox Game Pass library included some Play Anywhere titles which could also be installed and played on PC, but there was no equivalent package for PC gamers to access titles on the Microsoft Store.
Microsoft's E3 showcase isn't going to be all about the consoles this year: the PC is getting some love too, including details on how Xbox Game Pass is going to work on PC. In a statement given to PCGamesN, the company's executive vice president of gaming, Phil Spencer, said that while more and more games will be heading to Steam, the option to buy games on other marketplaces might appear in future. Game Pass members will also receive discounts of up to 20% on Windows Store games and up to 10% off of DLC and add-on purchases. While not mentioned by name, the elephant in the room here is the Epic Games store.
In related news, Microsoft announced that following Halo: The Mast Chief Collection, it will continue to add its more than 20 Xbox Game Studios titles to Steam, including Gears 5 and Age of Empires I, II, and III: Definitive Editions.
While there are, of course, plenty of PC storefronts out there, I'm willing to bet that Spencer isn't referring to Uplay or Origin.
