Twitch is partnering with Xbox this week to give away three months of PC Game Pass subscriptions when you buy or gift two new Twitch subscriptions. The free PC Game Pass offer will give new subscribers access to the service, which includes titles like A Plague Tale: Requiem, Personal 5and Microsoft’s first-party games like Hall Infinite, Forza Horizon 5and Sea of Thieves.
The promotion will start at 1PM ET on November 3rd and run until 6PM ET on November 11th, and you’ll need to be a new PC Game Pass subscriber to be able to redeem the deal. After two subs are donated or purchased, a code will appear in your Twitch notification inbox that can be redeemed on the Xbox website.
Microsoft regularly offers three months of PC Game Pass for $1, so while the Twitch deal is interesting for users of the streaming service, it’s not the best deal we’ve ever seen. It also arrives just as Microsoft begins to focus more on the growth of PC Game Pass.

Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer revealed last week that the company’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service is already profitable, but the console’s growth has slowed. “We’re seeing incredible growth on PC… On console, I’ve seen growth slow down, mainly because at some point you’ve reached everyone on console who wants to subscribe,” Spencer explained in an interview.
