Xbox Game Pass exclusives also work on PC

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Good news everyone!

Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox Game Pass scheme will also allow day one exclusives access on PC.

Yesterday  the gaming heavyweight announced that Xbox Game Pass will now allow players to access brand new exclusives like Sea of Thieves on release. The update to the service has now been confirmed to apply to PC subscribers as well.

Head of Xbox Games Marketing at Microsoft, Aaron Greenberg confirmed the service would roll out on PC when replying to a fan query on Twitter.

This is excellent news for PC gamers, but also sounds like Game Pass members could swap between Xbox and PC with access to both versions, though save data may not be shared. Either way, the service will now offer fantastic value for money, allowing you to access brand new titles for a smaller monthly cost.
