The service gives you access to over 100 full games from Microsoft’s growing roster of first-party developers and publisher partners. These include the latest releases from Xbox Game Studios like Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5 and Age of Empires IV. It additionally includes Minecraft, Sea of Thieves and Microsoft Flight Simulator, among other first-party releases.


You can also play games from franchises like Fallout and The Elder Scrolls owned by Bethesda Softworks, which Microsoft acquired in 2021.


What’s more, EA play is bundled in as well, which expands your library to include games from franchises like FIFA, Battlefield, The Sims and Mass Effect.

"At Xbox, our mission is simple, to bring the joy and community of gaming to everyone on the planet," said Jeremy Hinton, Xbox Asia Business Lead. "Bringing PC Game Pass to new countries in Southeast Asia is an important part of how we will achieve this as we strive to reach billions of players."


Microsoft said it's running the preview to allow players to give them feedback about the service as they continue to get it ready for a full launch later this year. The company adds that Game Pass, which was launched in 2019, was built from the ground up with the help of the PC gaming community. It also said that it continues to take what it hears from players to further improve the service as it continues to bring it to new markets.
