Microsoft is offering free PC Game Pass trials to non-members who have played some of its biggest 2021 game releases.
Anyone who has played Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5 or Age of Empires IV on PC from its release until February 28, 2022 is eligible to receive a 3-month trial of PC Game Pass, it announced this weekend .
However, the offer is only valid for those who have never been a Game Pass member on Xbox or PC. Users will therefore need to have played purchased copies of the above games or Halo Infinite’s free multiplayer mode.
Users can check eligibility and claim the offer at Microsoft website.

At the end of the 3-month trial, users will be charged the full subscription rate. To stop being charged, they can cancel their subscription in their Microsoft account.
According to a recent report, an Xbox Game Pass “family plan” will be available soon.
Windows Central says its sources say the plan will allow multiple users in the same household to access the service, similar to Spotify and Nintendo Switch Online’s family plans.
“From trusted sources familiar with Microsoft’s efforts, we can now confirm that Xbox is moving forward with an Xbox Game Pass family plan, which is expected to launch later this year,” the site reported.
Microsoft recently revealed that it paid developers and publishers “hundreds of millions of dollars in Game Pass licensing fees.”
