It’s that time of the month for Windows 11 insiders once again. This time, those in the Canary channel are getting their hands on a new section on Microsoft Store (v. 22308.1401.x.x or higher), dedicated to the PC Game Pass. 

Billed as Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25947, the new section makes it easier for users to discover and subscribe to Game Pass, as well as learn about the benefits of the service. 

It includes a list of all the games available on Game Pass, both PC and console. It also includes a section for new games on Game Pass, so you can easily see what’s been added recently. There is also another section for Day One games, so you can be sure to play the latest releases as soon as they hit the stores. 

In case you missed it, Starfield, Microsoft’s latest exclusive game for Xbox and PC, has just been launched. The good thing is, that you can play this fantastic game for a very low price if you’re an Xbox Game Pass or a PC Game Pass subscriber. So, this updated section may be a way for Microsoft to promote Starfield even more.

“With the new experience, you can learn about Game Pass benefits, such as exclusive games, deals, free perks, EA Play, and more. It’s also easier to discover, jump in, and play your next favorite game, including Day One games, new games on Game Pass, Bethesda games, and more,” Microsoft mentions in the update.
