What are Xbox Game Pass Quests?

Xbox Game Pass Quests is a branch of Microsoft Rewards that allows you to earn redeemable points by completing various Xbox and Game Pass related objectives. These points can then be used to acquire various gift cards, such as Xbox and Microsoft currency, as well as competition entries and charity donations. It's basically like completing Achievements, but for real money.

These quests come in three varieties -- daily, weekly and monthly. Below, you'll find a list of all the current Xbox Game Pass Quests for the week commencing 4th August 2020, along with some guides to help you tackle the most challenging quests of the month.
