  • Xbox Game Pass for PC was just rebranded to PC Game Pass.
  • YouTube Premium subscribers can get three free months of PC Game Pass at no additional cost.
  • Only new Game Pass subscribers are eligible for the offer.

Microsoft recently rebranded Xbox Game Pass for PC as simply PC Game Pass. The subscription still has the same library of games, cost, and is otherwise the same as before the name change. The rebrand also served as an opportunity for a promotional offer, which provides three free months of PC Game Pass to YouTube Premium subscribers.

9to5Google spotted an email from Google about the promotion. Only new Game Pass members are eligible for the offer. That appears to mean that anyone who has had any version of Game Pass, PC or otherwise, is not eligible for the promotion.

"We're showing some gaming love to our Premium members so you can level up with more than 100 high-quality PC games like the brand-new Halo Infinite — out now," reads the email from Google.

YouTube Premium subscribers have until December 31, 2021 to take advantage of the offer before it expires.

PC Game Pass has an ever-expanding library of titles, including Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Dragon Quest XI. It also comes with the critically-acclaimed Halo Infinite.
