Microsoft has launched the PC Game Pass in five countries in Southeast Asia, including the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

PC gamers in the region can now play over 100 high quality games for less than $1 (P49) for the first three months.

In the official Xbox Wire website Thursday (April 21), Microsoft announced that the PC Game Pass includes a library of over 100 high-quality PC games including new Xbox Game Studios releases on day one, iconic Bethesda games, and an EA Play membership, with a huge variety of PC games across genres, and new games added all the time.

The move marks a beginning for Xbox in Southeast Asia to discover games and play with friends at a great value. Once players in the Philippines complete their initial three months for P49, the PC Game Pass will be available for a monthly price of P119/month.

“Our goal is to bring PC Game Pass to more countries where Windows is available to help us reach over 3 billion gamers worldwide. We are off to a strong start in Southeast Asia where we saw great demand for PC Game Pass during the preview period. We are listening to the players and are always looking to improve the experience. This includes growing the selection of games across genres and providing better language support,” said Jeremy Hinton, Xbox Asia Business Lead.

The PC Game Pass includes a wide range of games like Age of Empires IV, Back 4 Blood, Forza Horizon 5, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Hades, Minecraft, Sea of Thieves and Microsoft Flight Simulator, among others. 

This includes new Xbox Game Studios titles on day one like Halo Infinite, as well as iconic franchises like, DOOM, Wolfenstein, Dishonored and The Evil Within from Bethesda Softworks, independent games, and blockbusters. 

EA Play is also included with the service, featuring some of the world’s biggest franchises including FIFA, Battlefield, The Sims and Mass Effect.
