The Amazon-owned Twitch streaming service is currently running a special promotion which rewards viewers who make at least two Twitch channel subscriptions with three free months of PC Game Pass, Microsoft’s video game subscription service for Windows PCs.

Accepted monthly subscription types include single month subs, three and six multi-month subs, and gift subs (which is where you buy a subscription to a channel and give it to someone else to use). As is typical with Game Pass promotions, only completely new Game Pass users who have never used Game Pass before nor used any previous promotional codes can redeem this offer.

“Sometimes you’ve gotta mix it up,” the official announcement made earlier today reads. “Whether it’s playing a new title on release day or throwing it back to a classic for all the nostalgia feels, it’s crucial to have that game library available when you want it. So, we want to help. For a limited time, we’re teaming up with Xbox to provide a PC Game Pass trial when you support Twitch streamers with subscriptions.”

PC Game Pass is a monthly subscription service run by Microsoft that gives members full access to around 100 video games on Windows PC. Xbox Game Pass is essentially the same service though designed for Xbox One and Xbox Series X video game consoles and games while Xbox Game Pass Ultimate combines both PC and Xbox tiers and unlocks access to Xbox Cloud Gaming.
