It is already known that the subscription service provides tons of attractive titles to gamers around the world every month. Although it tries to cater to the needs of console users, the PC platform never lags behind either, given that Microsoft owns the Xbox brand.

Now considering the period from late 2021, several top-notch games have been released for Xbox console as well as PC. They include Forza Horizon 5, Age of Empires IV, and Halo Infinite.

And Microsoft just dropped a massive offer for all of its PC gamers who recently became new Game Pass members. According to the new announcement, anyone who played Halo Infinite, Age of Empires IV, and Forza Horizon 5 before February 28, 2022 can now enjoy Xbox Game Pass on PC for free.

The most important thing to note here is that this free trial will be available for a period of three months. That’s really huge considering the subscription service offers around 100 titles each month.

Eligible PC players will also be able to unlock exclusive Bethesda games, while enjoying EA Play.

Meanwhile, a majority of gamers didn’t seem impressed by Microsoft’s gesture of saying thank you. Most players expressed their disappointment with Game Pass saying that only new members will get it for free. On the other hand, existing and long-term subscribers will get nothing out of it.

Other users simply had no interest in the service as they thought it was just lacking in good games. An angry fan wrote: “I had an XBOX but I sold it. Basically a Limo console”.
