Today, we’re excited to announce that Xbox is partnering with Caleb McLaughlin, also known as Lucas Sinclair on Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” for our second-ever Xbox Game Pass Challenge. Last month, Usain Bolt kicked off the first challenge and we’re looking forward to seeing Caleb bring his A-game and watching him as one of the few people in the world to take on Usain in gaming!

On May 20 at 3:00 p.m. PT, fans can check out how Caleb’s supernatural sensibilities stand up as he competes in challenges throughout the Xbox Game Pass library. At only 16 years old, Caleb is no stranger to the gaming world. This past November, he joined us in New York for the launch of the Xbox One X where he showed off his gaming versatility and quick thinking as he played through several of our Xbox One X titles we featured at the event.

We can’t wait to partner again and see his skills in action outside of the silver screen. During the event, Caleb will complete each challenge from 12 games in the catalog such as Sea of Thieves, NBA Playgrounds, and Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Fans can watch the livestream on the Xbox Mixer channel and are encouraged to join Xbox Game Pass and better Caleb’s achievements.

Xbox Game Pass Challenge launched in April featuring “The Fastest Man in the World,” Usain Bolt as our first guest, completing seven out of nine of the challenges. We’re excited for the second installation of the challenge and to see Caleb complete some of his favorites from the catalog.

Make sure to tune in for our latest livestream on May 20 at 3 p.m. PST hosted by Microsoft Studios Community Manager Rukari Austin. With over 100 great games available for one low monthly price, including highly anticipated new games from Microsoft Studios the day they’re released, plus more games added every month – Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play. Fans that haven’t tried Xbox Game Pass yet can start their 14-day free trial of Xbox Game Pass today and look forward to State of Decay 2 joining the catalog on Tuesday, May 22.
