Xbox Game Pass Now Supports Pre-Loading on Xbox One and Windows 10

Xbox Game Pass has been growing rapidly in the recent weeks, and especially with a bunch of big new titles coming to the service over the coming weeks, it’s not going to slow down anytime soon.

Although Xbox Game Pass is already a really good service, Microsoft is introducing a much-requested feature to make it even better. The service now supports pre-loading on both Xbox One and Windows 10, allowing users to download a new title before it’s officially available.

So for example, if you pre-order Crackdown 3, you will be able to pre-download and install it on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC, and play it on February 15, 2019, as soon as it is released.

Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra said on Twitter that Crackdown 3 is the first title to support pre-loading on Xbox Game Pass, and more upcoming titles, like Ori and the Will of the Wisps will probably follow suit.
