  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: The most comprehensive option, including all the benefits of Core, access to console, PC, and cloud streaming, EA Play games, and Xbox Live Gold membership, priced at $16.99/mo.

Additionally, there is a promotional offer where users can subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for just $1 for the first month. This offer is often used as a transition to the all-inclusive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Benefits and Considerations

  • Cost-Effective- Xbox Game Pass offers a promotional price for the first month and can be a cheaper alternative to buying individual games.
  • Xbox Cloud Gaming- With Ultimate, stream games directly to your phone or PC without downloading. (Requires good internet connection)
  • Backward Compatibility- Play select Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One or Series console.

Keep in Mind

Xbox Game Pass keeps things exciting with at least five new games added every month. As a subscriber, you'll also get upcoming titles from Xbox Game Studios (formerly Microsoft Studios). There are a few things to keep in mind, though. While some Xbox 360 games are playable through Backward Compatibility, you'll need to download all titles for access. Additionally, Gamerscore earned in some games may be limited. 

Conclusion

Endless games, endless possibilities: Xbox Game Pass. Explore a massive, ever-growing library across consoles, PC, and cloud. Play new games monthly, get day-one Xbox Game Studios titles, and choose a plan that fits you. Stop buying, start exploring with Game Pass today!
