So the console boys have this thing called Xbox pass which is €9.99 a month and lets you play a few games like Halo 5, Gears, Recore etc, like a Netflix for games or a more expensive Microsoft only EA Access/Origin Access.
Well they have announced that “All Microsoft studios games to be part of Xbox game pass on release day - including Sea of Thieves. Microsoft singled out Rare’s online pirate adventure (out on March 20), adding that State of Decay 2, Crackdown 3, and unannounced games in the Halo, Forza and Gears of War franchises will all be included.”
Which sounds good, those games are meant to be Xbox play anywhere, buy a copy for xbox and play on windows 10 but according to their FAQ Xbox game pass isn’t available on windows 10.
Except it does seem to work for Windows 10. There isn’t that many play anywhere games in the game pass only Recore and Gears 4 but I opted into the 14 day trial and I have the option to download both Recore and Gears where there used to be a buy button.
While €9.99 is high it could be an option for people looking to get into Sea of Thieves but if Forza goes onto it aswell as Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2, it could be worth it for a couple of months.
