It’s official! During Microsoft’s Inside Xbox stream today, the company confirmed that yes, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is an official thing.
It’s also available to test out now by Xbox Insiders.
The service combines Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold so you get the best of both worlds in one easy package.
The service is $14.99/month. If you’re already subscribed to Game Pass and Live Gold, you can merge the two into a new subscription.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate won’t be available publicly until later this year. We can assume that we’ll hear more about it at E3.
