Xbox Game Pass With a Second, More Expensive Subscription Option?

According to Microsoft's rumors, a second, more expensive option of Xbox Game Pass subscription, called Ultimate and expanded by Xbox Live Gold features. Details about it are to be published during the E3 fair.

Twitter account WalkingCat, owned by user h0x0d, is known from the publication of rumors related to Microsoft, which very often turn out to be true information. According to one of the latest tweets that appeared on the profile, the American company is preparing to expand the Xbox Game Pass service. The company plans to introduce a more expensive subscription option called Ultimate, which will cost $14.99 per month. In addition to the standard version of the Xbox Game Pass, it will also offer subscribers an Xbox Live Gold subscription package, which enables Xbox users to play online and acquire new games from time to time. Please note that the standard Xbox Live Gold price is currently $9.99 per month. We will learn more about the company's plans during the E3 fair in June.

It is worth noting that according to other sources, on E3 we should also learn something more about the PC version of Xbox Game Pass, which Microsoft has been mentioning for some time. It is no secret that Microsoft has great hopes for the development of its services, such as Xbox Game Pass or the planned xCloud streaming service. Netflix is a success model for the company. What is important, the scope of these plans includes not only PCs and Xbox family consoles, but perhaps also competing platforms, such as Nintendo Switch.

Let's remind that Xbox Game Pass gives us full access to an ever-growing library of more than a hundred games, which, in addition to the classics, includes titles released by Microsoft,, such as Crackdown 3, Forza Horizon 4, Gears of War 4 and Sea of Thieves. We will run all games on Xbox One console, but some of them can also be downloaded to PCs. The standard monthly subscription fee is $9.99. The first month for new users is available for $1.
