During The Game Awards, Microsoft announced the rebranding of the Xbox Game Pass for PC. Taking a more simplistic approach and making things straightforward for PC gamers, Xbox Game Pass for PC will now be called “PC Game Pass.”
Three versions of the Xbox Game Pass have been made available to the users; Xbox Game Pass for the console; Xbox Game Pass for PC games; and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which gives users access to both console and PC games.
Now, giving away the confusion for many, Microsoft has made things simple for many of us by simply naming the Xbox Game Pass for PC to PC Game Pass. The name has a much better ring to it too. However, the rebranded Game Pass for PC will still carry an Xbox logo, showing clear ties to the Xbox.
Microsoft has also announced a list of upcoming titles coming on day one for PC Game Pass;
- Atomic Heart
- Plague Tale: Requiem
- Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising
- Slime Rancher 2
- Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl
- Total War: WARHAMMER III
