What you need to know
- Solitaire is now available through Xbox Game Pass for PC.
- The Xbox Game Pass for PC Twitter account shared an over-the-top trailer to celebrate the news.
- Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers can download the ad-free version of the Microsoft Solitaire Collection.
Xbox Game Pass for PC includes some highly rated and popular titles, including Microsoft Flight Simulator, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and Gears Tactics. Now, the game subscription service has the "most played video game ever," Solitaire. While that might seem like a small title in comparison to those already on the service, the Xbox Game Pass for PC account on Twitter seems to disagree, at least for the sake of a funny video.
The account shared a comedically over-the-top video hyping the launch of Solitaire on Xbox Game Pass for PC. The video includes explosions, neon Comic Sans text, and plenty of exclamation points. We're not sure if Solitaire is destined for our list of the best games on Xbox Game Pass for PC, but the video is certainly something.
Specifically, Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers can download the ad-free edition of the Microsoft Solitaire Collection. Some have complained that Solitaire gained ads in 2015 since the game was free and ad-free for years. While this news doesn't make it free for everyone, it brings the title to PC gamers with an Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription.
On a more serious note, our games editor Jez Corden recently wrote about how Xbox Game Pass for PC is not good enough. As funny as a launch trailer for Solitaire is, Corden's arguments about the service still hold true.
