Microsoft’s Xbox division has teamed up with Twitch to provide an interesting new promotion for PC Game Pass. When someone buys two new Twitch subs or gifts subs, they can grab three months of PC Game Pass for free.
In a joint Microsoft and Twitch announcement, the companies say the promotion will get underway tomorrow (November 3) at 1 PM ET. It will run through to November 11 at 6 PM ET.
Once you buy two subs during the promotion, Twitch sends a code to your account inbox. This code is the one you use to redeem three months free on PC Game Pass via the Xbox website.
There are eligibility and limitation requirements that you can see below:

- Subs received through Sub Token redemptions
- Any other product purchases (Bits, Turbo, etc.)
During its recent Fiscal 2023 Q1 earnings, Microsoft revealed PC Game Pass is thriving. According to the company, subscriptions have increased 159 percent compared to the same time last year. Furthermore, Xbox Cloud Gaming users have now passed 20 million.

It seems Game Pass subscription revenue was $2.9 billion for the fiscal period ending January 2021.
