Use The Anacrusis from the Microsoft Store instead. Install, Uninstall & Update.

Another option you can try using is the Microsoft Store. Some games that are listed on the Microsoft Store can be updated, installed and uninstalled directly from the Store rather than the Xbox app, which, in a lot of cases prevents or solves issues. Just make sure that you are signed into the Microsoft Store app with the account that holds your Game Pass subscription.

  • First, open the Microsoft Store, then click the Library icon in the bottom left-hand corner.
  • Next, change to the Games tab and you will see all the games installed on your computer from the Microsoft Store and Xbox app.
  • Next to The Anacrusis, you should see an Update icon. If you don’t, there might not be a game update. So double-check there is actually a new version out. Click Update and the update will start. Most Game Pass PC game updates are quite big so expect it to take some time to complete. You can do the same using the Uninstall option if you wish to remove the game.

If you don’t have another drive to allocate fully to games you can always create a partition on your current drive. Just set aside some storage space, I would try to set at least 150GB aside to account for the biggest games on Game Pass. You don’t want to have to redo a partition down the track. It’s an annoying process. A separate partition will allow you to format it regularly without having to worry about the other stuff on your computer.
