The twilight of games as physical media is truly upon us. Apologies to those who like the smooth feel of those fragile little discs, but this is a good thing. You may be paying a little more for your console’s subscription plan, but in return, you get access to perks that include a virtual warehouse worth of games.
With a two-month subscription to Xbox’s Game Pass Ultimate, you can access hundreds of games (including some true classics) for just $8.99.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: One pass to rule them all
If you’ve somehow been gaming without a Game Pass of any kind, get ready for some big changes. There are a few subscription plans available on Xbox, and it can be tough for newbies to discern the difference between them.
The most important things you need to know are that the Game Pass Ultimate combines the benefits of all other Xbox plans. And it can make your gaming experience truly immersive.
First off, the plan comes with Xbox Live Gold, which means access to online play with the community of gamers on the most advanced online console multiplayer network. That’s an absolute must for top games like Rocket League or Sea of Thieves.
You also get access to EA Play at no additional cost. That allows you to open the vault on some of Electronic Arts’ best titles, as well as enjoy member-exclusive rewards and content.
More loot than you can handle
Game Pass Ultimate makes more than 100 high-quality games available for you to play on Xbox at any time. Some current games on the roster include hits like Monster Hunter Rise, Mortal Kombat 11 and Halo Infinite. Plus, this list of hot titles will grow, because the service adds new games constantly.
And, thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming, you’ll be able to play some of them on devices other than your console — like your smartphone, tablet and PC — anywhere you like. You’ll get the most bang for your buck with Game Pass Ultimate, as members also get first looks at upcoming games, exclusive in-game content and a ton of other perks.
