Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live for $14.99/month.
During Inside Xbox, Microsoft announced Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which will combine Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be available later this year and will cost $14.99/month.
This new subscription was leaked earlier this month and will save subscribers around $5/month, as both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live are $9.99/month.
If current subscribers to either Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live wish to upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, they will be able to apply the value of their existing subscriptions to this new service.
It’s also important to note that this isn’t replacing either service, but will be another option for those looking for one, consolidated subscription.
While Xbox Game Pass Ultimate won’t launch until later this year, Xbox Insiders in select markets will get the chance to try it out and give feedback to help improve further the service.
For Xbox Insiders joining this service this month, as well as those who are already members, they will be able to try out such games as Monster Hunter: World and Prey, as they are some of the newest games being added to the service this month.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will also be pretty enticing for future owners of the just announced Xbox One S All-Digital Edition that has no disc drive and will be available on May 7, 2019, for $250 USD.
