Xbox Announces Friend Referral System for PC Game Pass

PC Game Pass users can now invite their friends on to the subscription platform with a 14-day trial.

Xbox has announced a new referral program for Game Pass. Starting today, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass subscribers will be able to give up to five friends a free 14-day trial for PC Game Pass. A major restriction of the offer is that invited friends must be new to Game Pass to make use of the invitations.

Alongside PC Game Pass, the invited friends will be able to make use of all other Game Pass features as well, including an EA Play Membership, and the ability to link their Riot accounts to Game Pass to unlock content and XP boosts in League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra.

Microsoft also announced the first wave of titles arriving to the subscription platform for the month of May. Kicking things off this month is Arkane Austin’s co-op shooter Redfall, available on PC, Xbox Series X/S, and the cloud. Other games coming to the platform in May include action RPG Ravenlock for PC on May 4, Weird West: Definitive Edition for Xbox Series X/S on May 8, and the Shadowrun Trilogy for PC on May 9.
