Both were revealed several months ago, but we now know final pricing — and you can subscribe today.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the much-desired bundle for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, combining them for a single $14.99 monthly subscription.

Subscribing to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will save you five dollars over subscribing to each individually if you pay monthly.

Microsoft has sweetened the deal with an alluring practice it has previously offered for other Xbox Live and Game Pass services.

If you have three months of Xbox Game Pass, and three months of Xbox Live, you’ll be credited six months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate when you upgrade to it.

While Xbox Game Pass Ultimate targets gamers with an Xbox console, Microsoft has recently broadened its ambitions to PC games.

Microsoft is adding four sports games to Xbox Game Pass in March and April. Madden NFL 21 arrives today as part of EA Play for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, and Football Manager 2021 will arrive tomorrow for both Xbox consoles and PC. NBA 2K1 will also launch on Xbox Game Pass tomorrow and will be available on xCloud game streaming, too.

The fourth and final sports addition will be NHL 21 in April, arriving for Xbox console owners with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Sports games aren’t the only new additions this month, though. Star Wars: Squadrons is coming in March for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.

Microsoft first unveiled its Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription earlier this year, with access to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass games.

While it was only in beta before, it looks like Microsoft is now launching this to everyone today with the big addition of PC games.

That means for one single $14.99 monthly subscription you’ll get Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for both Xbox and PC.

That’s a great deal if you play PC and Xbox games, as Xbox Game Pass has a number of different titles for both PC and consoles.

Separately, Xbox Game Pass for PC is available at $4.99 per month, Xbox Live Gold at $9.99 per month, and Xbox Game Pass for Xbox at $9.99 per month.

That’s a combined separate total of $24.97, so the Ultimate deal is a saving of more than $10 per month if you want all three of Microsoft’s subscriptions.

Microsoft is unveiling a new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription today that combines Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass into a single monthly charge.

This new service was rumored earlier this month, and it’s now official.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will combine both the Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold subscriptions into a single monthly cost of $14.99.

Xbox owners will save around $5 per month compared to the $19.98 monthly subscription price for an existing combination of the two services.

Microsoft is only unveiling the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription today, but the company is beta testing it with its Xbox Insider community before it’s available in all Xbox Game Pass markets later this year.

This isn’t the first time Microsoft has experimented with bundling Xbox services together.

Microsoft is bringing its popular Minecraft title to Xbox Game Pass next month.

The software maker is releasing Minecraft as part of the monthly Xbox Game Pass subscription on April 4th, adding to the more than 100 games that Xbox players can access.

While many Xbox players probably already own a copy of Minecraft, its addition to the Xbox Game Pass subscription will still help Microsoft on its mission to convince Xbox owners to subscribe.

Microsoft has been aggressively pushing its Xbox Game Pass subscription in recent months, and the first month is just $1 instead of the regular $9.99.

For the monthly charge, you can download and install more than 100 games, including Microsoft’s latest first-party games like Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 4.

Microsoft has committed to launching all of its own games on Xbox Game Pass at the same time as they hit stores, meaning Halo Infinite, the next Gears of War, and additional Forza titles will all come to Xbox Game Pass.

Want to get as much as three years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just 100 pennies?

We know what you're thinking: this deal seems too good to be true.

Throughout E3 2019, Microsoft is running a deal which gives you one month of the new XBox Game Pass Ultimate service for $1 / £1 instead of the standard $14.99 / £10.99.

This combines Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC, rolled into the same subscription.

Individually, they'd cost $9.99 a month, each, with some additional savings if you buy them annually at a lump sum.

But there's a way to make it even better, essentially bringing Xbox Live subscribers the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate upgrade for 36 months for just $1 / £1.

A couple of weeks back, Microsoft announced that Xbox Game Pass was coming to PC.

While some of us may have expected Xbox Game Pass to roll out on PC at some point later this year, Microsoft wants to get the ball rolling as quickly as possible by launching the PC version into beta today.

As if that weren’t enough, Microsoft is also making it easier (and cheaper) to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass on both Xbox One and PC.

Of course, we already knew that beta announcement was coming, because Microsoft let slip details on it earlier in the day.

When that information leaked out earlier, we learned that Microsoft will charge $4.99 per month for Xbox Game Pass on PC, but that isn’t the only way to get a subscription to the service.

Microsoft is also offering a subscription bundle of sorts called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Microsoft is allowing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to try its new game streaming feature (xCloud) early tomorrow, August 11th. The software giant will launch a new version of the Xbox Game Pass beta app for Android, which includes game streaming. While the game streaming feature, known previously as xCloud, will be officially available on September 15th, anyone can grab the beta app from the Google Play Store and try it early from tomorrow onward.

“As we approach the launch of cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on September 15, we’re entering a limited beta period to ensure a smooth transition of the cloud gaming experience to the Xbox Game Pass app on Android,” explains a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge....

Microsoft is adding Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) to the company’s Xbox Game Pass subscription on November 12th.

The addition means Xbox One users who subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for $9.99 will now be able to access PUBG, alongside more than 100 others.

Microsoft’s move to add PUBG to Xbox Game Pass comes just as rumors suggest the game is about to launch on Sony’s PlayStation 4 in December.

Microsoft appears to have paid for a year of exclusivity on the Xbox One for PUBG, but a move to PS4 opens the game up to millions more as it continues to battle with the popularity of rival Fortnite.

Microsoft has been consistently pushing Xbox Game Pass, just as the company is exploring game streaming with its xCloud service.

It’s clearly a big part of Microsoft’s future Xbox plans, and the company has committed to releasing all of its first-party titles through Xbox Game Pass.
