PC Game Pass is a simple rebrand of Xbox Game Pass for PC, with all of the benefits remaining untouched. The rebrand was announced at the Game Award 2021. Microsoft via a tweet made it abundantly clear that nothing is changing apart from the logo and the name of the service.

Under the service, the company currently offers access to over 100 games including various AAA titles, a free subscription to EA Play, Day 1 access to various AAA titles, cloud gaming and much more.

Any better offers to get Game Pass?

While the YouTube Premium offer is a good one getting you complimentary three months of access to the PC Game Pass service, Indians are being offered a better deal by Microsoft itself.

Due to the Reserve Bank of India’s new mandates for recurring payments, the company is offering new Game Pass subscribers the service for a duration of 8 months at just Rs 489.
