Minecraft coming to Xbox Game Pass on April 4

Microsoft announced today during the Inside Xbox stream that it is bringing its behemoth sandbox title Minecraft to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service on April 4. The game has been under Microsoft's umbrella since the company bought the title and its developer Mojang back in 2014.

The game currently boasts over 91 million players across the world, thanks to it being available on basically every gaming platform, from major consoles and PC to mobile devices.

Per today's announcement, those who don't already own it will be able to join in on the block-based fun by subscribing to the Xbox Game Pass next month, giving complete access to the game. Also, don't forget that F1 2019 and Fallout 4 are also set to arrive for the program tomorrow, as previously announced.

Xbox Game Pass is available for purchase on the Microsoft Store for the standard $9.99 per month. However, there is a promotion running for new subscribers right now that gives them a month of access for a single dollar.

Also announced during the Inside Xbox stream today was Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC, which is surprisingly heading to both Microsoft Store and Steam.
