The Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which gives access to both Xbox Game Pass for console and PC which also includes Xbox LIVE GOLD is the most value for money subscription server in all of gaming right now, there really is no competition for it. So it came as a surprise last week that Xbox announced a brand new feature called ‘Perks’.
Through Perks, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will now regularly receive new benefits including DLC, in-game content and more – all free and included with membership.
Kicking off already, the first line up of perks include:
- World of Tanks: Mercenaries: A global multiplayer free-to-play game dedicated to tank warfare in the mid-20th century. Start your journey with three powerful tanks and more!
- Sea of Thieves: The essential pirate experience, from sailing and fighting to exploring and looting – everything you need to live the pirate life and become a legend in your own right. With Perks, you get a free Ori-inspired Ancestral Sails, Figurehead, Hull, and Flag to adorn your ship.
- Smite: Become divine in the #1 MOBA on Xbox, with a bundle that unlocks five Gods, special character skins and voice packs so you can ride into the battle of the Gods in style. With Smite, join a community of 30 million players and defend your portal in showdowns in the Collesium.
For subscribers in the US you will also get:
- Phantasy Star Online 2: Enter the world of one of Japan’s biggest online RPGs with a special content bundle, which includes unique emotes, in-game cosmetics including an Xbox jacket, a gold ticket Mission Pass and in-game currency with a Meseta Crystal. Available to members in the US and Canada only.
This is a tremendous addition to an already incredible subscription and over time hopefully more and more can be added. The ‘Ori and the Will of the Wisps’ ship set for Sea of Thieves is already my favourite in the game!
