Confirming rumours from earlier this month, suggesting that Microsoft was preparing to launch a new Ultimate subscription service. Microsoft has today confirmed that the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will include Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold for $15, offering gamers a 25% discount when compared to buying each service separately.
Starting today, Microsoft is inviting a limited number of its Xbox Insider community members to join and test Xbox Game Pass Ultimate before it launches later this year in current Xbox Game Pass markets.
“Today, we’re excited to announce Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Game Pass Ultimate will include all of the benefits of Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass. That means the full Xbox Game Pass library of over 100 high quality games, and Xbox Live Gold online multiplayer, in one convenient membership for $14.99 a month. With Game Pass Ultimate, gamers will be able to play together on the most-advanced multiplayer network and discover their next favourite game.
Your feedback directly contributes to the evolution of Xbox Game Pass – thank you for taking the time to help us continually improve the service. A top request you have shared from day one is to provide an option to get Xbox Game Pass and the most advanced multiplayer network, Xbox Live Gold, in a single membership. “
