Now it is official! As of September 17th, the Xbox Game Pass service for PC was no longer beta, in order to finally be fully operational in Brazil. With a monthly subscription, users have access to over a hundred games, including early access to a few releases.

The good news is that the promotion is still valid for new subscribers: In the first month of access, you only pay R $ 1. After that, the monthly fee is R $ 29.99. Let’s get to know all the details of the Xbox Game Pass service and understand how to access this huge virtual game library.

The list of the most popular games includes Resident Evil 7, Age of Empires 3, Wasteland 3, World War Z, Dead by Daylight, Batman: Arkham Knight, Gears of War 5, Battletoads, Forza Horizon 4.

Integration with EA Play is another novelty

Another good news for consumers is that Xbox Game Pass for PC will be integrated with EA Play later this year. In other words, in addition to the games provided by Microsoft, you can also download and play titles from the EA Play catalog, which includes games from the FIFA, Battlefield, The Sims, and Star Wars franchises.

In total, more than 60 titles are already available in this format. As with EA Play subscribers, those who choose Xbox Game Pass for PC will get early access to EA games, discounts on new release purchases, and exclusive downloadable content for select games.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

In addition to the PC-only plan, you can also access the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. This is a bundle that has the same benefits as the previous one but also allows games to be downloaded to all Xbox consoles. In this case the monthly fee is slightly higher: R $ 44.99 per month.

Another benefit of this package is the inclusion of Xbox Live Gold, the Deals with Gold (a selection of games to buy at a discount), Games With Gold (free games offered monthly by Microsoft) and the online multiplayer option in titles where this feature is available.

It is also worth remembering that the Xbox Game Pass does not offer integration with other app stores such as Steam or Uplay. Hence, you’ll need to download the Xbox Game Pass app to manage your downloads, install and play your favorite games.
