If you own both a PC and an Xbox console Microsoft thinks you might be interested in the new Xbox Ultimate Game Pass. Have you tried the new Xbox app yet?

We've known for some time now that Xbox Game Pass will be coming to PC this year, in addition to various improvements to the Windows Store experience for gamers. It's time for a new generation of consoles, so everyone needs to get on board the hype train. Just like the movie service, games will come and go out of the library. The people I play with and the games that I want to play. Where you play is now entirely your choice, ' Mr Spencer said.

Signing up for Game Pass Ultimate, even just the free trial, will automatically upgrade any existing Game Pass and Gold subscriptions into the new service.


But perhaps the best announcement from the Xbox E3 conference was that the new Xbox will release alongside a new Halo entry called Halo Infinite, the sixth game in the main Halo timeline succeding Halo 5: Guardians which released back in 2015.

Adapting to the new trends will be critical for contenders in the massive video game industry, which previous year generated more than $135 billion globally, and $43.4 billion in the United States. You get all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold, but with over 100 high-quality console and PC games as well.

"This right now is the single most creative and energizing time in gaming history", Spencer said. Could this hint at an open world game?


Games on smartphones have accounted for a lot of that growth.

Included in the line-up is the entire "Master Chief" collection of the popular "Halo" science fiction shooter franchise on Xbox. Here's everything we know so far about Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Elsewhere, Project Scarlett will also support 8K-resolution playback, although Microsoft has not confirmed whether this will be limited to streaming video or include video games as well.


If you're anxious about any prepaid months of Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass, then don't be, because any prepaid time will be applied towards the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate plan, up to a maximum of 36 months. However, the Xbox One X cost £449 ($499) when it launched in November 2017.
