    Anyone tried it out yet? How's the performance? What's your internet provider / bandwidth?

    Oh wait.. this isn't a streaming platform?

    Game pass is working pretty well for me.

    I can search for games, read reviews, download and manage them in one nice place a lot better than using the Windows store. Lol

    Yeah it works fine. And games like Metro are Win32, not UWP so there's no difference than running them from other launchers. It's also saved me from having to ever download EGS ;)

    Nice. I noticed it was only $1 to try it out, so I figure why not. I'm installing Exodus now, though it installed the UWP version of MSVC++ runtime, which is interesting.

    I had to download that too, it is a bit odd. One problem I just thought of is that the game isn't saving video settings, so each time you boot it you have to change some of them (it doesn't seem to remember resolution for me). But the devs have said a patch is coming.

    Keep in mind the $1 trial is for the Game Pass Ultimate, which covers Xbox One and PC. The price will jump to $14.99/month if you decide to keep it. The version that focuses specifically on PC, which still allows you to get Metro Exodus, is $4.99/month, at least for the duration of the beta. Hopefully it will stay at that level for the early adopters.

    Yeah I saw when I purchased it that it jumps to $5 after the first month. I hardly ever use my actual Xbox one console anymore so I went for the PC option. Even $5 a month is pretty good, though it remains to be seen if the game collection ongoing is worth the recurring cost. Playing Metro Exodus for $1, or even $5.99 if I don't finish it within the first month, is still a pretty good deal.

    Yea, you have to update Windows to 1903 and then download the client from the windows store and log in like your Xbox client for PC.
