PC Game Pass will leverage GeForce Now in the coming months

During the “What’s Next For Gaming” panel with team Xbox at the 2023 Xbox Games Showcase, corporate Vice President Sarah Bond said that PC Game Pass members will soon be able to play their catalog on GeForce Now devices.

“I’m thrilled to share with you that in the coming months, we’re actually going to bring GeForce Now as something you can leverage with PC Game Pass,” explained Bond.

“You’re going to be able to play your PC Game Pass catalog leveraging GeForce Now, and you’re going to be able to do that on all devices using GeForce Now, whether it’s low-powered PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, or mobile,” she added. “So, we’re thrilled to add that next benefit for PC Game Pass Members.”

Last month, Microsoft announced that players would be able to stream select games from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda that were purchased through Steam or the Epic Games Store. Now, it looks like GeForce Now will have even further integration with Microsoft’s games through PC Game Pass.

As for the timeline, Xbox Wire stated that this feature will be coming out in the months ahead. Microsoft committed to bringing more games to GeForce Now earlier this year in order to assuage regulators about its pending acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

The 2023 Xbox Games Showcase premiered and showed off some new titles from Microsoft’s first-party studios. These include InExile’s Clockwork Revolution and Compulsion Games’ South of Midnight. There were also updates on previously announced games such as Forza Motorsport, which will launch on October 10, 2023. Additionally, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II and Avowed were both set to be released sometime in 2024.

All of Xbox’s first-party games are expected to join Xbox and PC Game Pass on the day of their release dates.

E3 was canceled this year, but the summer of games continues thanks to Xbox. It delivered a ton of updates and announcements during its Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct today. Fans had been waiting for news on a lot of previously announced titles, and the company delivered with a first look at the Fable reboot, a release date for the Forza Motorsport reboot, the first Avowed gameplay trailer, and a release window for the long-gestating Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2. Xbox Game Studios subsidiaries Compulsion Games and InXile Entertainment also showed off what they've been up to, with official announcements for South of Midnight and Clockwork Revolution, respectively.

Xbox Games Showcase can succeed where the PlayStation Showcase struggled
Senua stares ahead wearing war paint.

If there’s one video game presentation happening over the next week that has the most to prove, it’s the Xbox Games Showcase. Despite a strong start to the year with Hi-Fi Rush and a solid Developer Direct showcase, Microsoft’s gaming branch has floundered in recent months because of struggles with its acquisition of Activision Blizzard and the rocky launch of Redfall. With the Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct Double Feature, Microsoft must reconfirm its commitment to gaming and to releasing high-quality first-party exclusives.

That said, Xbox is in an excellent position to do just that because of Sony’s underwhelming May showcase. As the first major gaming presentation of the summer, Sony had the chance to “win” the whole game reveal season early with its PlayStation Showcase. Ultimately, that live stream proved disappointing because of its focus on CGI reveal trailers and live service games.

At Microsoft's June 2022 Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, the publisher made a lofty promise. It said that every game shown off would be released within a year of the showcase.

That's not exactly how things panned out, though. During a May 4 interview on Kinda Funny's XCast podcast, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer admitted that Xbox "didn't deliver" when that promise was mentioned. Though there are still a few weeks left for Xbox to make good on its promise, it seems unlikely that every game shown at its 2022 presentation will indeed launch as planned.
