Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the way-to-go!

Well assuming you have an Xbox One of sorts you will be wondering what Ultimate Game Pass is, how can it benefit your gaming experience and is it a subscription service?

In this article all those questions will be answered and more, but first thing is first, what is Ultimate Game Pass? Ultimate Game Pass is simply Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass and EA Pass all put into one subscription bundle that is advertised for £10.99 per month or three months for £32.99 and the prices continue, however, Microsoft offer a three-month trial for £1, in which you’ll get both all these for one monthly fee rather than paying out for the two modes separately, which will save you money and hassle.

Game Pass for those who don’t know gives you access to a huge list of games that you can download and play at any time with no limits to what you download or how much you play, so long as you keep your subscription going.

This appears to be rather excellent, instead of spending a fortune on Game Pass and Live Gold every year you can cut a good saving for yourself, well done Microsoft, but the savings don’t stop there, for those players who already have Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass on its own prepaid, when you buy/add Ultimate to your account a pop up will show telling you that it will turn the remainder of your Xbox Live or Game Pass into extended time for your Ultimate Pass.

For example, if you have a prepaid 12-month Xbox Live Card (£49.99), and then you buy a prepaid 1-month Game Pass Ultimate (£10.99), once you have added the 1 month to your account it’ll turn your Xbox Live into a 13-month Ultimate Game Pass account for a total of £60.98 instead of paying £129.99 for an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate 12 months.

From my personal thoughts, as an Xbox gamer I think this an amazing feature from Microsoft’s part as its effectively a cheaper, easier, and all-round better version of Microsoft Game Pass and because of this you have more money to spend on other games.
