So far, PC gamers have been able to use Microsoft’s flat-rate game for $ 3.99 per month to access over 100 games and, most importantly, popular ‘exclusive titles’ such as Flight Simulator 2020, Gears 5 , Forza Horizon 4 or Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Via Twitter the Redmond-based company announced that the discount period will end on September 17, just days before interested parties can pre-order the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The price of the PC Game Pass then climbs to 9 , 99 euros per month. New customers will likely continue to receive the first month for one euro.
The price increase increases the attractiveness of Game Pass Ultimate
For many subscribers, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at $ 12.99 per month should be the best choice after the PC game plan price increased. It combines the subscription for Windows 10 PCs and Xbox consoles, also includes the Xbox Live Gold subscription and access to the upcoming Microsoft xCloud game streaming service. The recently announced cooperation with Electronic Arts, which brings over 60 titles from EA Play subscription to Game Pass “for free,” applies to both Ultimate and PC pricing. A reason which caused the rise in prices and could justify it.
Game Pass is likely to become the linchpin in the future, especially for buyers of Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. For gamers who are primarily interested in titles from Xbox Game Studios (e.g. Sea of Thieves , Halo Infinite, Forza & Co.), Game Pass Ultimate subscription is paid for 2-3 games at full price per year otherwise would have been purchased. Especially also, because the Game Pass often even contains the ultimate versions of various titles. The downside: You get into some addiction because Microsoft decides which games are included in Game Pass and when they are removed from the subscription.
