Microsoft outlined the company’s new Xbox Game Pass subscription tiers ahead of E3 2019. The company is launching the long-tested Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription and a standalone Xbox Game Pass for PC users.
If you play games on both PC and Xbox, you’ll most likely want to enroll in the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription for $14.99/month. This tier gives users access to Xbox Live Gold and the collection of Xbox Game Pass games on both PC and Xbox. This tier isn’t exactly new but was gated behind beta testing while Microsoft worked out the bugs. Now everyone can sign up for the service, and Microsoft introduced a long list of PC games to make the subscription worth a trial.
The Xbox Game Pass Ultimate tier is cost effect for players that mix console and PC gaming, since Microsoft prices Xbox Live Gold at $9.99/month, and the Xbox Game Pass for $9.99/month. If you add the $4.99/month PC version on top of that, it would cost you $24.97/month for all three subscriptions. At $14.99/month you’ll save money and have the option to play Xbox Game Pass games on the platform of your choice.
If you don’t play games on Xbox but play games on PC, you might be interested in the standalone Xbox Game Pass for PC at $4.99/month. The new subscription gives players access to all of the Xbox Game Pass titles on their favorite platform.
Users that already have time left on their Xbox Live Gold accounts won’t lose out by switching to the $14.99 plan. Microsoft will convert the time into the new service, and extra Xbox Game Pass Ultimate months will be added to your account.
The new subscription tier is just a small part of Microsoft’s E3 2019 presentation, which is scheduled to begin later today at 4PM ET. Interested players can find the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription right here on Microsoft‘s online store, and the Xbox Game Pass for PC option right here on the Microsoft store.
