Xbox Game Pass is a service that allows players to play a selection of over 100 games as an added subscription. Game Pass’s library is updated monthly, with new games coming and going every month. April is no different, and this month added new games to play.
The Xbox Game Pass membership has two variants, being normal membership and Game Pass Ultimate. For Game Pass Ultimate, the absolute biggest benefit is that it comes with Xbox Live Gold in its package. That bundle itself costs 14.99/month, in comparison to Game Pass’s 9.99/month (per platform).
