Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is Upgrading on Series X Launch Day

Xbox Series X launch day is quickly approaching. As we barrel towards the next gen launch day, it seems we have even more reasons to get excited. Microsoft has confirmed that a huge upgrade is coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on November 10.

Currently, Xbox Game Pass is a kind of Netflix for games. It’s a subscription that allows Xbox users to access hundred of games for a monthly fee. All of Microsoft’s first-party exclusives are available on Game Pass the same day the Xbox Series X launches. However, now we also have confirmation of EA Play joining the service. All Game Pass subscribers will be able to access every title in the EA Play Vault for no additional charge. This means that players can look forward to even more content at the tip of their fingers come launch day. Additionally, subscribers will also be able to access free trials of newer EA Games.

Game Pass Ultimate’s big expansion doesn’t end there though. At some point in December, the partnership will expand to include access to the EA Play library on PC as well. All of these titles will also be accessible through the xCloud streaming service. During their announcement, Microsoft also made sure to emphasize their recent acquisition of Bethesda. Both consoles and PC will be receiving all of Bethesda’s franchises to Game Pass at some point in the future. The first of these Bethesda titles to join Game Pass will be “Doom Eternal” arriving on October 1 for Xbox One.

It’s clear from all of these partnerships that Xbox is working to make Game Pass a truly unique subscription service. So if you want unlimited access to hundreds of titles whenever you want, perhaps a Game Pass Ultimate subscription is right for you.
