All good things must come to an end. Microsoft he confirmed that the PC version of Game Pass will cost soon $ 9.99 per month, instead of $ 4.99 per month. We knew this price hike was coming – Game Pass for PC is technically in beta at the moment, and the Xbox website has long stated that $ 4.99 is a “limited time price”
We will collect the introductory price on the 17th, but if you are already a member, you will pay the same rate during the next billing cycle. look for a notification on the 17th for more details

Unlike the console version, though, Game Pass for PC will soon arrive with a basic EA Play subscription. That service usually costs $ 4.99 per month on its own, which likely nullifies the Game Pass for PC price hike, provided you’re interested in the third-party publisher’s back catalog. Regardless, Game Pass for PC still looks like a great deal. It still has a huge library, after all, which includes all Xbox Game Studio titles on the day of its release. If you’ve got some extra cash to burn, there’s also Game Pass Ultimate, a $ 14.99-per-month service that bundles console and PC deals, as well as Xbox Live Gold on consoles, EA Play, and, starting with September 15th, streaming of xCloud games on Android phones and tablets.
