The Microsoft Xbox PC Game Pass is finally here in Southeast Asia. The PC Game Pass is now available in 5 Southeast Asian countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. We in the region have read about it but now finally get a chance to experience almost unlimited games every month. To kick things off all PC players can get started for three months for only $1 (USD)!
For those of you not in the know, think of the PC Game Pass as a kind of Netflix for games. Your monthly membership will give you access to a library of hundreds of PC games including new Xbox Game Studios releases on day one. At this time the PC Game Pass also comes with a bonus EA Play membership! With a huge variety of PC games across genres, and new games added all the time, there’s something for everyone to play.
“Our goal is to bring PC Game Pass to more countries where Windows is available to help us reach over 3 billion gamers worldwide. We are off to a strong start in Southeast Asia where we saw a great demand for PC Game Pass during the preview period. We are listening to the players and are always looking to improve the experience. This includes growing the selection of games across genres and providing better language support”.Jeremy Hinton, Xbox Asia Business Lead
