Special Promotions for PC Games Users
The streaming service Twitch, which Amazon owns, is currently running a special promotion in which viewers who subscribe to at least two different Twitch channels are eligible to receive three free months of PC Game Pass, which is a video game subscription service developed by Microsoft for use on Windows-based personal computers.
One-month subscriptions, three-month and six-month multi-month subscriptions, and gift subscriptions are the sorts of monthly subscriptions accepted (where you buy a subscription to a channel and give it to someone else to use).
Only brand-new Game Pass customers who have never used Game Pass before and have never used any previous promotional codes are eligible to receive this offer. This is standard practice for promotions associated with Game Pass.
Big Opportunity for PC Game Users.
Signing up for Game Pass on a personal computer (PC) allows users to receive their first month’s subscription for the low price of just one dollar, with the subsequent months of the subscription costing the regular $9.99 each. The cost of purchasing two Tier 1 subscriptions on Twitch is ten dollars. This means that players who take advantage of the promotion that Twitch is running would receive a free full month of Game Pass in addition to the perks that come with having a Twitch subscription.
It appears to be a legit decent offer for players on the fence about subscribing to Game Pass, and it couldn’t have arrived at a more opportune time. Players who sign up now can play new games added to the subscription service during the holiday season, which will likely feature many exciting new releases.
Players interested in taking advantage of the deal must make two purchases of Twitch subscriptions between November 3 at 12 p.m. CT and November 11 at 5 p.m. CT and then proceed to their Twitch inboxes after making the purchases. Players should be able to acquire a code for their Game Pass membership after purchasing two subscriptions to a service. They will need to enter that code into the appropriate field on the Drops & Rewards Inventory page of the Xbox website to redeem their new Game Pass membership.
It’s important to note that the code will only work in the following countries, although it’s quite an exhaustive list:
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
- United Arab Emirates
- United Kingdom
- United States
Microsoft has seen PC Game Pass grow 159 percent year over year.
Last week, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer disclosed that the Xbox Game Pass subscription service offered by the firm is already profitable but that the expansion of the company’s console offerings has slowed down. “The PC market is experiencing extraordinary development… Regarding consoles, I’ve noticed a slowdown in growth, primarily because “at some point, you’ve reached everybody on console who wants to subscribe,” as Spencer noted in an interview.
In addition, Microsoft reported that the number of individuals subscribing to PC Game Pass increased by 159 percent year over year and that more than 20 million users have played games through Xbox Cloud Gaming, an increase from the 10 million who played earlier this year. According to sources who spoke with The Verge, Microsoft is now aggressively focusing its attention on expanding PC Game Pass. This comes simultaneously as Xbox on PC will receive a “major” update within the next two weeks, as teased by Spencer.
