Devil May Cry and Stellaris are on Xbox Game pass right now, Age of Empires Definitive edition hits PC–with more to come

3 min read

I’m pretty chuffed with Game Pass on Pc. I’m not especially keen on the Windows store or the Xbox app that I have to use to access the service, but it’s a lovely way to play a bunch of games for not very much money. It’s a killer service on both PC and console, regularly adding great new games to play.

At the Inside Xbox shindig at Gamescom, Microsoft revealed a bunch of new games hitting Game Pass on both PC and console. Coming to the console version today are Capcom’s hack and slasher Devil May Cry 5 and 4x strategy game Stellaris. PC gamers, meanwhile, get to play the Age of Empires Definitive Edition.

Microsoft also has a more games coming to both Xbox Game Pass on PC and console in the near future. Soon you’ll be able to play the the gorilla-rampage simulator Ape Out, as well as the central European medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The Bard’s Tale IV: Director’s Cut and Blair Witch Project will also be headed to Game Pass before the month is up.

That’s another feather in the cap for Microsoft’s subscription service, which continues to impress with the volume and variety of games available.

    Would have been nice to get DMC5 on PC as well. I guess we can’t always be so lucky as PC gamers.
