Is Party Animals on PC Game Pass?

Party Animals isn’t available on PC Game Pass like many other titles that’s available on Xbox Game Pass at the same time. This might be related to the reason why the game is not yet available on PS5, PS4 and the Nintendo Switch. However, there’s good news for PC gamers who are eager to join the party. Party Animals is accessible on PC via xCloud, Microsoft’s cloud gaming service. With xCloud, you can stream and play Party Animals on your PC, even if you don’t own an Xbox console.

To play Party Animals on xCloud, you’ll need the following:

  1. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscription: To access xCloud, you must have an active subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. This subscription combines Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass for Console, and Xbox Game Pass for PC, along with access to cloud gaming.
