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

When the 3-month trial period ends, users will be charged the full membership fee. To stop being charged, they can unsubscribe from their Microsoft account.
According to a recent report, an Xbox Game Pass ‘Family Plan’ is coming soon.
Windows Central says its sources claim that the plan will give multiple users in one household access to the service in the same way as Spotify and Nintendo Switch Online’s family plans.
“According to trusted sources familiar with Microsoft’s efforts, we can now confirm that the Xbox is moving forward with an Xbox Game Pass Family Plan, which should be launched sometime this year,” the site reported.
Microsoft recently revealed that it had paid developers and publishers “hundreds of millions of dollars in Game Pass licensing fees”.
