This is the sort of deal that just kind of sells itself. It really doesn’t need much explanation. You get three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $24.99. This subscription would normally cost you $14.99 a month, so you’re saving $20 today versus the $45 three months would normally cost. And you get everything Game Pass has to offer while it lasts.
If you’re not already subscribed, then you should know this is a monthly thing and the price will return to automatically renewing for $14.99 a month after the deal’s subscription legnth wears off. You might find you love it so much you want to keep it, but if not you can cancel the subscription at any time before the three months are up. Or keep an eye out for even more deals to keep adding to the length.
Game Pass has a lot of different variations designed so that you can pick the features you want and save some money if you don’t need everything. This is the Ultimate version, so you save money and you get everything. It combines three different services in one: Xbox Live Gold, Game Pass, and Game Pass for PC. Xbox Live Gold normally sells for around $5 a month ($60 a year), and each version of Game Pass goes for $10 a month individually. Combining them altogether already saved you some money, and today’s deal saves you even more.
If you aren’t familiar with Game Pass, it is essentially a Netflix for video games. With your subscription you can play any games in the Xbox Game Pass library for free and for as long as your subscription lasts. You get instant access to hundreds of games including major AAA titles like Forza Horizon 5 or the upcoming Halo Infinite and even smaller or indie games like Celeste or the critically-acclaimed Hades. Download the games to your console or PC and play them in full without paying anything extra.
With Xbox Play Anywhere you can play just about anything just about anywhere, but there’s also a list of PC-exclusive games on Game Pass for PC you’ll have access to. With the included Xbox Live Gold, you can play all of your games online as well. Dive into some multiplayer and co-op functionality. Not to mention, you can take advantage of all the other Xbox Live Gold benefits like Deals with Gold or even Games with Gold that releases free games every month.
