Are you new to Xbox, or maybe you’ve always been an Xbox gamer but have never paid for Xbox Game Pass? Whatever your reasons, if you’ve not bothered with the service before, now is the time to change that thanks to the chance to grab hundreds of games for next to nothing.
No, this isn’t a freebie, but it’s as near as you’ll get, with Xbox offering a 14-day trial of Game Pass for just £1. My coffee order isn’t that cheap, not even if I go somewhere where the coffee is low-priced and hard to swallow.
We interupt to ask if you've seen the new Fortnite Chapter 5: Underground yet?
Although Xbox boss Phil Spencer has addressed the notion of Game Pass arriving on other consoles (big shocker, he confirms it isn’t happening), the service is still undergoing a series of updates as it progresses. Consequently, you’re joining a pretty polished service, one that some would argue is in better shape than PS Plus, a service that’s been painfully flailing in recent months.
So, not only are you getting a bargain, but you’re also getting it for a platform that hasn’t had a large group of its users threatening cancellations and/or following through with those threats. That being said, let’s not overlook the PS free store credit that's confusing in its generosity, as recently discovered by fans.
We’re not bothered which console you favour, if any, all that matters is that you can get a huge collection of games for £1. Games like Rise of the Tomb Raider, Remnant II, and many others praised far and wide by gamers – December’s new free games are a great turnout.
If you’re ready to unlock Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can do so now, with the first 14 days costing you £1, before the service returns to its normal monthly fee. The choice is yours.
