Metro Exodus is on the Xbox Game Pass for PC

Metro Exodus (opens in new tab) was supposed to be exclusive to the Epic Games Store (opens in new tab) until it launches on Steam in February 2020, but this week it appeared on the Windows Store (opens in new tab) with a release date of today. Now it looks like it will be included in the new Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription service, which will grant PC gamers access to a library of 100+ games for $5/£4 a month (opens in new tab).

The Metro Exodus Windows Store page (opens in new tab) says the game is "included with Xbox Game Pass PC games". Other games with the same message include Slay the Spire (opens in new tab) and Into The Breach (opens in new tab), which suggests Microsoft is assembling an impressive lineup.

The pricing details of the service were revealed earlier today (opens in new tab)—you can get your first month for $1/£1—and a beta looks set to launch imminently, given that the store page for the pass went live this morning (opens in new tab). Microsoft will reveal more details at its E3 event later today including, we hope, the full list of 100+ games included with the pass.

You can watch the event here (opens in new tab).
