Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service that gives you access to over 200 games for $10 a month. You can also purchase Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which bundles Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Live Gold multiplayer into one discounted package for $15 a month.
Let's say that you're unsure about the service and want to try it out. Well, there's a new way to do so. Today, Microsoft announced a limited-time offer for the holiday season. If you purchase an Alienware or G Series PC, you get three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC at no additional cost. Keep in mind that Xbox Game Pass for PC is still in beta so there may be a few bugs now and then.
The best part is that if you're already a member and buy any of those machines, you can add those three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC to your existing subscription. The offer also stacks with other discounts or promotions.
A lot of new games are available on Xbox Game Pass for PC lately like Dead by Daylight, Descenders, Metro 2033 Redux, and The Outer Worlds. If you haven't played those games, be sure to check them out. I have to say, the service gets better every month, and it's nice to see that it's included with new Alienware of G Series PC purchases.
