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.
