Xbox Game Pass Offers Ultimate Holiday Treat With Big Additions

November 14, 2019

Microsoft announced during X019 this year that the Xbox Game Pass library is going to be stuffed to the brim over the coming months, and is offering a massive holiday discount for those willing to jump in now.

Those who are willing to purchase an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be eligible for their first three months for the new low price of a single dollar.  For those three months, players will get access to all of the features of Xbox Game Pass, from discounts on DLC to purchasing games for their own library. Other additions will include 3 months of Discord Nitro and 6 months of Spotify Premium, as well as a new partnership with EA.

The new EA partnership will offer one month of EA Access for players, giving them the ability to play a large selection of EA titles along with the Xbox Game Pass. The EA offer, however, is only available for a limited time, so players should act quickly to take advantage of the new deal.

Along with this new low price for Xbox Game Pass, over 50 new games are going to be added to the service over the coming months, some of which will be here just in time for this holiday season. A few games were already made available; titles such as Age of Empires: Definitive Edition and Hearts of Iron IV: Cadet Edition are exclusive for PC players, while Rage 2, The Talos Principle and Tracks: The Train Set Game are for both PC and Console. 


A slew of other games are scheduled to be released throughout the holidays and into 2020. The biggest reveal included 10 titles in the Final Fantasy franchise, which are scheduled to release in 2020. Other major releases include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, three titles in the Yakuza franchise and smaller titles like My Friend Pedro and The Red Strings Club

The full list of games announced can be found here, along with which games will be leaving the service by the end of November.
