Game Pass

During its E3 press conference, Microsoft unveiled the future of Game Pass, including that the long-rumoured PC version will enter beta today.

As had previously been reported, the PC service is promised to feature more than 100 games by August, with Microsoft highlighting Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy game Imperator: Rome and Football Manager.

Other games set to arrive on the service include Metro Exodus, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, Prey, and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Game Pass PC will be available as a standalone service or bundled into a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which also includes the Xbox service and Xbox Live Gold. Normally, the subscription will be available for USD$14.99, though Microsoft is celebrating E3 with a $1 deal.

The publisher also used the opportunity to reveal a host of new ID@Xbox games that will launch on Game Pass day one with their retail releases. Among those titles are The Good Life, Ikenfell, Night Call, and Riverbond.

Halo Infinite

Tim Longo, the creative director for Halo Infinite, has left 343 Industries.

According to Kotaku, Longo moved to a different role in 343 Industries a few weeks ago and then left the company for good this week.

In his place, executive producer Mary Olson will take over the responsibilities of the Campaign team as the lead producer. The studio head of Halo Infinite, Chris Lee, will still be in charge of the game’s overall creative vision and production.

Microsoft assured that Longo’s departure would not impact the game’s late 2020 release window and will still launch alongside the next Xbox platform, currently codenamed Project Scarlett.

Longo was also the Creative Director for Halo 5, as well as had previously worked on games such as Star Wars: Republic Commando and 2013’s Tomb Raider.

At E3 2019, Microsoft noted that Halo Infinite‘s Slipstream engine will support future Halo entries and that the game will be a single-player game initially at launch.
