Usain Bolt is tackling the world’s first Xbox Game Pass challenge

Microsoft has teamed up with the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, for the Xbox Game Pass Challenge. Xbox Game Pass has been a huge success for Microsoft and the Xbox One and this event with Bolt will attempt to bring wider attention to the service.

The Xbox Game Pass Challenge will put both Bolt and the catalogue of games to the test as he tries to complete a variety of challenges in 10-minute periods. 

The Usain Bolt Xbox Game Pass Challenge will be broadcast on Mixer, Twitch and Facebook.

The games that Bolt will be playing as part of the Xbox Game Pass Challenge include NBA Playgrounds, Gears of War 4, Dead Rising 3 and PES 18. Bolt actually appears in PES 18 so that will be sure to be a highlight of the challenge.

PES 18 is joining the 100 or so games available as part of the Xbox Game Pass. Microsoft believes that Bolt is both excited to play and to see himself as part of the Game Pass lineup.

The Usain Bolt Xbox Game Pass Challenge will take place on April 26 at 3pm PT (April 27 at 8am AEST).

If you haven’t yet tried the Xbox Game Pass, you can start a 14-day free trial right now.
