Everyone please play Prey if you haven't already or I will cry.
Yeah, I'll cry, too!

Does Prey share its achievements with the Xbox version?

Does Prey also come with all the DLC?
Sadly not. At least i didnt see any of the DLC stuff.
If I have the DLC for Prey on the Xbox One, do I get access to it on the PC, as well?

I certainly would not be opposed to playing through the game yet again, but on PC this time.

Is anybody elde having problems launching Wolfenstein? I finally managed to fully download the game but I'm getting this error message: "Could not write crash dump"
In case somebody else is having the same problem, update your graphic drivers. It works perfectly afterwards. It runs super smooth even on my laptop Ryzen, a damn fine port!

Weird Prey bug on Game Pass PC: if you let it idle at the main 'press start' screen it won't be able to log in, which means you can't access any saves either. Fortunately restarting it and pressing a button ASAP will avoid this problem.

I've been super stoked on the PC Game Pass - recently grabbed that beta Xbox App after trying the companion app (ugh) and very happy about it. Been playing Crosscode, Kingsway and about to start Moonlighter. I got in when it was only $1 Canadian after the announcement and I'm over the moon about the value - even considering finally investing in a GPU since I have access to all these new (to me) games.

If I have a suscription for Ultimate until October and I get a 12 months gold code, does it automatically convert into ultimate?

Tried playing Prey but there is no option to disable motion blur in game and for it to be disabled I have to create a file in the game folder which I can not do since the weird Microsoft Store folder system is write protected.

So for some reason I am unable to download certain games. Prey, The Messenger, Vampyr, Astroneer...pretty much anything 3rd party. At first I thought it was just because those are locked as part of the beta but now that I'm seeing others are playing them....what gives? Whenever I hover over the "install" button, I just get a red circle with a line through it. Can't click the button, have plenty of storage, no error message anywhere....maybe it's a bug or there was another update for windows that needs to be done. Idk. :-\

You can grant yourself access to the WindowsApp folder to sort this (well everything except the .exe itself) - there are various guides on the internet.. However you then may struggle to uninstall the games afterwards as you'll be giving yourself the exclusive permissions to those files rather than the Windows service.

It's all a bit annoying really but I suppose there's no way around it given the DRM nature of Game Pass and the time limited nature of the games.

I had the same thing before I updated Windows 10 to the latest version. It's not apparent, but if you scroll down on the store page it should say the reason why you can't install the game.

EDIT: For anyone reading, I uninstalled the latest Windows Update (KB4503293) and that seems to have fixed things, at least for now. Looks like they're still tinkering with permissions etc though, so this really is still all a Beta.
THANK YOU! this worked for me as well. It seems at least. Was able to install Void Bastards (again) and Metro is installed at least.

Anyone played Hellblade? I can't find the option to turn on hdr, I ready it was patched in but I don't see it in the graphics options.

Updating through Windows Update didn't help so I had to go and find the May update webpage and download the installer there....but now I can get The Messenger and Vampyr!
Thanks!

Anybody having gamepad issues with The Messenger? My control stops detecting movement input, but every other button works fine and it seems to randomly happen in-game. No other game is having this issue so I don't know what is going on.

Was wondering why my downloads were failing every time I tried to install most of them. But somehow a few worked without it (Recore). Needed that 1903 update...

Pretty cool getting in at $1. Probably wouldn't be buying most of those games otherwise.

I was hoping that Metro update would fix the game for me, but no. The game still crashes before I get to the main menu, and whatever "safe mode" is won't let me play because it can't access Xbox Live.

I had an issue with the controller tuning off and not powering back on if I left The Messenger idle for a while. I restarted the game and app, resynced the controller and adapter and it cleared up the issues.
