I know you may have heard this before, but it’s really worth reiterating that Xbox Game Pass is still one of the best gaming deals for any PC gamer. Microsoft offers a trial subscription again on PC and Ultimate Xbox Game Pass for just $1 until the end of April. Game Pass gives you access to over 100 PC games, including Microsoft Xbox games like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5, on your PC and streamed through the Xbox app. Game Pass even provides a basic subscription to the EA Play library of over 65 games and 10-hour trials of new releases like Fifa 22 and Battlefield 2042.
I recently spent an incredible amount of time on the Warhammer Total War 3 campaign
when it was added to Game Pass at launch in February before my powers were decimated, but this is what I can describe as an army of pleasure demons. The game retails for $60, as someone who can’t pay full price for anything, this service has honestly spoiled me. I’ve definitely found myself waiting to see if the games I want to play make it into Game Pass before spending money. The worst feeling in the world is paying full price for a Scarlet Nexus only to see it on Game Pass months later. However, I doubt we’ll see anything like Elden Ring making it into the library.
If you choose Game Pass Ultimate, you’ll have access to these games on both PC and Xbox
What I personally love about Ultimate is all the free stuff you give out every month in the form of game DLC or free trials for non-game streaming services like Spotify or Crunchyroll. You can try Game Pass on PC, it will only cost you $1 for the first month and then you’ll be billed at the regular price. Game Pass Ultimate is also paid and can be renewed for $15 after the first month. Again, this deal is for new members through the end of April. But, if you decide to use, say, one or two emails to create a new account, I will not slander you.
