Microsoft Adds a Bajillion Games to Xbox Game Pass and Includes Holiday Offer

Alright so I’m exaggerating by the bajillion claim, but it sure seems that way.

If you got your hands on the new Xbox Series consoles, now would be a great time to get game pass for it. If you didn’t get one, now is also a great time to get game pass if you have a PC. Lets start with the first reason. Microsoft announced starting December 3, you can get your first three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1. That’s a whole lot of gaming for just the price of a coffee at McDonald’s. That coffee sure won’t last you three months.

The second best part, 17 games will be added the service by December 10. So not only are there already a ton of games to play on the platform, but you are getting even more. This includes new releases like Haven and Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition. Finally, PC game pass subscribes will get access the EA Play games on December 15. Now you see where I got the bajillion claim from. This also doesn’t include the various perks you get for being a subscriber.

Keep in mind if you want to keep the subscription going after the three months ends, it will cost you $15 per month. It’s still a great deal for those who have an Xbox as well as a PC. However, those without the console can downgrade their plan to just game pass for $10 per month.

Now normally this is where I’d start giving the titles being added with a brief description of each game, but there are just too many to include this time around. So for this time, I’ll just include whats being added and when as well as what is leaving and when.
