    Why is Windows update 1903 Required for some games on game pass (PC)


    I'm very confused on why this update that correct me if I'm wrong is a windows 10 beta update 1903 is required to play games through the gamepass on the windows store.... playing the same game elsewhere say on steam for instance would not force this....

    :)

    I don't believe I would call Windows 10 Version 1903 a beta build. It is considered the latest public release. Keep in mind that Xbox Game Pass for PC titles are playable through the Windows Store, so they may have different requirements than Steam.

    Because I dare say the update acts as almost an activation key for the Game Pass App to be downloaded or some such thing, in the end it's the requirement for it so that's the way it's going to have to be.

    Hi,

    Sorry you're having issues with Game Pass for PC. There are some current issues with the program at the moment. I have downloaded one game so far that worked, which was Gears of War Ultimate. Currently trying to get Metro Exodus.

    Just a heads up. You do not need to be in the Windows Insider program anymore to get the PC Game Pass Beta application. This application is now open to all Windows 10 users, as long as their OS is updated to the latest version, 1903.

    Are you running version 1903?

    Bought the XBOX Game pass PC / Ultimate but can't install Metro Exodus

    I had to update to the May 2019 Update. Not all Windows 10 PCs are getting that update automatically, so you may have to manually trigger it.

    Also, I would recommend getting this instead of using the Windows Store: https://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-game-pass/pc-games

    Cannot download GamePass PC games through Xbox Beta App, with error 0x80070005

    Same issue here.

    Windows is up to date (version 1903), the XBox Beta app is installed properly, In the Parameters, the XBox Game Pass PC Games is displayed as active.

    Yet is I try to download a game from the Game Pass Pc Games, it tells me an unexpected error occurs 0x80070005.

    However I can dowload game that only requires the old XBox Game Pass for Windows (which I also have).

    So Metro or Vampyr give me an error while Wargroove or Sea of Thieves for instance, work.
