Today’s offer is combinable with Microsoft’s 1 month for $1 deal for new members. If you’ve never tried out Game Pass Ultimate before, start your service at Microsoft for $1 and then apply the six months you receive from Newegg. That means you’ll have seven months of Game Pass Ultimate for just $41 total.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the combination of two current programs: Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold. Subscribers to Ultimate will have access to both for one monthly subscription cost instead of two separate ones at a $5 discount. Additionally, the new Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription is also included with Game Pass Ultimate.
Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that offers complete access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games. You can download these to your console to play in full for as long as you’re a paying subscriber or the titles in question remain in the Game Pass library. Better yet, if a Game Pass title also supports Xbox Play Anywhere, you get access to play those on your PC, as well, as part of your subscription. The PC-specific Game Pass subscription has its own list of games, some of which are a crossover with the console, but many are exclusive to PC.
Meanwhile, Xbox Live Gold features provide you with a number of perks. The first is access to online multiplayer in any Xbox One game, so if you want to play with friends you need Gold. More than that, though, Gold gives you free games every month that are yours to keep. Gold subscribers also earn exclusive discounts on games from the Microsoft Store, as well as additional discounts during special promotional periods.
