That’s a lotta games! The way fans are finding these right now is by searching up each game and checking to see if it is included in Game Pass. Currently, the games don’t show up on the Game Pass catalog on either the console or PC versions of the store or website.

Fans are also finding some PC Game Pass titles are available early, including Metro Exodus, ARK and Ori And The Blind Forest. A store page for “Xbox Game Pass PC Games” is currently live and seems to indicate that the plan will cost $5 a month. [Update - 11:30 pm: Microsoft PR indicates that $4.99 is an introductory price for the first month and that the service will then cost $9.99 a month.] The full list of PC Game Pass games can be seen on Reddit.

All of this news and more will most likely be confirmed in a few hours when Microsoft gets on stage for their press conference later today. We will also learn some new information about the next-gen Xbox and their future plans for PC gaming and possible cloud gaming.

The conference starts today at 1 p.m. PDT/4 p.m. EDT.

I still don’t understand this ongoing story about xbox game pass coming to PC, as I’ve been already subscribed to it for PC off-and-on since December, if I recall correctly. I originally signed up wanting to play Forza Horizon 4, as I don’t have an XB1, and there have been so many $1 monthly deals that I don’t think I’ve spent more than $10 total. 
So far other than Horizon 4 - I’ve tried Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 1 & 2, Super Lucky’s Tale and Gears 4. The list of game pass games available on PC is admittedly very small in comparison to the titles on Xbox, but it’s been around on PC since at least December or November, maybe earlier.
