E3 2019: Microsoft Announces Game Pass Ultimate

Game Pass was a huge talking point for Microsoft during their annual E3 briefing. Who can blame them? It’s one of the best — if not the best — examples of a game service around. And now it’s going Ultimate.

Bundling the already excellent Game Pass with Xbox Live Gold and the recently announced Xbox Game Pass for PCXbox Game Pass Ultimate is the service for the Xbox fan who wants it all.

Announced last month, Xbox GamePass for PC — clunky name and all — is available in beta right now. For those who don’t know, it’s an entirely different service from its console counterpart and requires a separate subscription. PC specific games are the reason, with Football Manager 2019 available on the service at launch alongside the likes of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will make its PC debut starting with Halo: Reach.

Xbox GamePass Ultimate can be purchased right now for £10.99 ($14.99 USD) or £1 / $1 as an E3 2019 special offer.

F1 2019 raises the bar once again for F1 games. Whilst more hardcore racers will still prefer something like iRacing or Assetto Corsa, casual players and F1 fanatics will wholeheartedly enjoy their time here, regardless of their skill level.
