    Hell yeah AoE. Very excited to play that game again...it's been several years.

    Glad Game Pass Ultimate is a thing. Would much rather plan AoE on PC than console! music
    I wonder why considering X1 offers mouse & keyboard support. It's just that MS seems to have forgotten about it.
    It's up to the dev's to add keyboard and mouse support. So unless the dev's of age of empires approached microsoft and says they want a console version with keyboard and mouse, then ur not getting one. It has nothing to do with microsoft
    Are you serious? MS owns the IP. They can do with it whatever they want. It's the devs that have absolutely nothing to say about it.

    MS adds mouse & keyboard support for X1 but they absolutely don't want AoE to be on X1 consoles even though there are RTS games on the console, some even by MS. That's just a wasted opportunity.

    DMC aint really my thing but i'll give it a go, you never know and I don't really know much about the other one but conquering galaxys is a good start. Would like to play AOE or whatever it's a shame it's on PC.
    With the addition of PC Game Pass it seems like they are taking some of the thunder from the Xbox Pass. I haven't done a comparison, so I don't know for a fact that fewer games are being added to the Xbox side, but it seems like it.
    I think they are releasing more quality over quantity. I'm fine with with that.

    Also..i don't expect a good month when Gears of War 5 releases as it will overshadow most.

    I've been wanting to try out DMC 5 for a while and almost bought it a few times. I'm happy to see it on Games Pass. Keep this up Microsoft and I'll keep subscribed to the pass.

    Not sure how much people have noticed this or even care, but they also announced that the Stellaris PC version will be coming to game pass PC eventually as well.

    Pretty big deal for me as I have played tons of the game on PC and it's several big patches ahead of the console version. No other info on it though. Still want to know which version it will be and if it's the latest, if it will be cross play with the other PC versions. And of course, Xbox achievements.

    Stellaris hell yeah I have been wanting to play that for ags but couldn't justify 89 bucks.

    Definitely going to check out Stellaris, and I'm probably at this point going to play AoE DE some time. Probably end up playing AoE2 first as that's the DE I've been waiting on forever. Just hoping it comes to game pass, so I haven't got to buy it.

    So is there a way to still purchase the older version of AOE to get the stack?
    Im thinking no, but someone may know of a way.

    Dude. Game Pass value is insane.

    DMC5 on gamepass way too soon... isn't this maybe, too good of value to the point it's hurting business by discouraging people to buy at launch?

    Like whats the takeaway from all this? Don't buy ANYTHING because you could of gotten them fuckin nearly free months later?
    What do purchasers at launch get? A big ratio boost? That doesn't matter since newcomers can get in on that too. They should at least dump a few thousand reward points into your reward account for being a launch supporter.

    Thanks to Game Pass and Gold membership there is almost no argument for me to buy games anymore.

    I was looking into that too/will be looking into it when I get home. If you can find a retail code online, you can still get that version I believe. Someone mentioned that on another forum post. Try going to the AOE 2018 or AOE DE Win 10 forums, it should be one of the first couple ones.

    I like the fact that the article links directly to the achievement pages of the games. And not to the HUB page. Who is using the hub anyway?
