Updated June 9, 2019: Metro Exodus is now available (opens in new tab) with Xbox Game Pass.
E3 season is all about announcements, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited for all of the latest deals as well. Not only is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate available for just $1 right now, but it looks like a whole host of games are joining Xbox Game Pass on console and PC.
Shenmue I & II look to be highlighting the games on the console front, while PC is getting titles like Metro Exodus, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Sunset Overdrive, Ori and the Blind Forest, and a ton more. If you haven't bought Xbox Game Pass yet, now certainly looks to be the time.
This is especially big news for Metro Exodus as it originally launched as an Epic Games Store exclusive, much to the disappointment and anger of, well, pretty much everyone. This will be the first time that people can play on PC through any other storefront than Epic, unless they pre-ordered the game on Steam before it was pulled.

I've already converted. What an awesome deal. Anyone with any Gold or Game Pass should go spend the $1 because it'll all convert to Ultimate. I paid $1 and I'm good until April of next year.
Is that $1 for the 1st month then 15 bones afterwards?
Football Manager 19 and the first two Shenmue games. Goodbye what little remained of. The free time I don’t have.
