I just finished up Outer Wilds, about to tuck into Void Bastards, and then they drop all this! Love Commandos so keen to give Shadow Tactics a blast, and it may be finally time to replay Shenmue after all these years.

Looks like the Xbox Game Pass PC Games will launch later tonight, Metro Exodus is already available to download but the button brings you to an unavailable page.

Yeezus!

I've already played through most of these but the value there is undoubtedly incredible.

Now, I'm wondering if I should go through Shenmue. I've never touched it but know a great deal about it via osmosis either from friends or the internet. So much so, I honestly feel like if I actually put my hands on the game, it'll betray what I think I know about it, haha.

There's that many good "free" games on Xbox now that it would pay for itself over a couple of years for almost anyone.

Imperator: Rome
Tyranny: Gold Edition
Surviving Mars
Metro: Exodus
Broforce
Hatoful Boyfriend
Hotline Miami
The Messenger
Weird that some of those devolver games are on PC Game Pass but aren’t even out on Xbox One

Game Pass is truly no joke. I did that insider thing fully expecting to not get any use out of it right away but with these new titles I downloaded like 4 games that I would have eventually bought. Almost already made up for the cost.

Now I will most likely play Hollow Knight and now I have no excuse NOT to check out Shenmue

I have a Xbox Game Pass but when I try to download any of these games it takes me to an unavailable page, the button also says 'Xbox Game Pass PC Games: Join Now'.

Yeah, I edited my post, it wasn't clear. Guess we'll see tonight whether PC Game Pass is available for all Game Pass users or if it's a Ultimate feature.

Metro has a sale right now on Xbox that ends in 10 hours.
Could be an indication for when we maybe get the console version.

That's one amazing list of new games, couple of the best games in the last few years in Hollow Knight, Steamworld Dig 2.

Added Metro, Tyranny and Battle Chasers to my queue on PC but they don't download yet. Maybe an E3 announcement? The other Play Anywhere titles like Moonlighter, Hollow Knight, Old Man's Journey and Wizard of Legend started right away.

Pretty certain there is already official language stating you need Game Pass Ultimate to access both Xbox and PC libraries beyond the Play Anywhere titles.

Seriously, people need to get into the Xbox ecosystem if they haven't yet, best offerings in the industry and lots of money to be saved, especially if they manage to combine Game Pass cleverly with xCloud and PC now there will be no way around Game Pass very soon.

Will start Hollow Knight right away to shorten the time until the show begins! So many games from my wishlist. I'm seriously starting to develop a Game Pass 'yet to play-log' on top of my purchased content backlog... Also, this announcement will let me keep hoping Shenmue III will one day come to Xbox, even if it has been ruled out for now.

Phew, that's a whole lot of absolutely fantastic additions!

I might try one or the other of those. Excited for the conference tonight too :)

A few years ago I would not have thought that ms would be able to turn the ship around this much in the right direction!

There are some games with this button. I hope Microsoft gives you a way to convert an Xbox Game Pass to a PC Games Pass later today.

Damn, this is exactly the kind of exposure Shenmue needs. The Xbox ecosystem is looking insanely appealing right now!

Seriously looking forward to what Microsoft has in store for the PC focused lineup.

It should be exactly the same thing. Game Pass has already technically been available on PC since launch.

Can't wait to see PC Gamepass details later today. I think I'm going to buy my first Xbox when the new one comes, the Gamepass and BC value just blows everything else away. Being able to play the same game on console and PC is very enticing now that they're doing it properly.

Metro's downloading for me. I've got the preview Game Pass Ultimate and I'm also in the State of Decay PC store test if that matters?

It's a massive download so it'll be a while before I can try launching it. I downloaded Broforce as a smaller test and it worked fine.

Damn, that's good. I just wish my Xbox didn't mess with me right now (online connection issues that is driving me crazy).

Holy shit...

...and FUCK that I bought Battle Chasers two days ago...

Guess I should really stop buying games if I have Game Pass.

Wow. Many of those games I was planning to buy soon. Gamepass has made my Xbox purchase truly worth it and will make me never unsubscribe.

Can't wait to play Guacamelee 2 with my significant other. Moonlighter and Shenmue is a nice bonus.

Thanks for this.

Can confirm downloads are working for me, but I have Game Pass Ultimate. Seems it is indeed either an Ultimate subscription or separate PC Game Pass subscription needed.

Downloading Metro Exodus and Imperator Rome at the moment.

Really wanted to replay Shenmue. Not played it since the Dreamcast days. Added to Gamepass, it is just rude not too now.

I don't have Ultimate and indeed I can not download - yet, anyway.

Great opportunity for people who never had the chance to play Shenmue to finally catch up on it!
