Think of Xbox Game Pass as gaming's version of Netflix, available on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles. It's also on PC in the form of PC Game Pass, and supports streaming via Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Curious about the games you can expect to play? Read our list of the best Xbox Game Pass games to see what's in store.

A subscription to Xbox Game Pass costs $10.99 / £8.99 / AU$11.95 per month, a significant jump after Microsoft announced its Xbox Game Pass price increases. While not ideal, the current price is still well worth the monthly cost to experience a library of titles without needing to buy each individually.

These are today's best prices for a standard Xbox Game Pass membership. We've included both three-month and six-month options below. When signing up, consider picking up a longer subscription upfront as that will save you money in the long run.

The cheapest Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deals

Something else you want to consider before committing, too, is whether you want an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription instead. This premium tier membership combines Xbox Game Pass with Xbox Live Gold - this second part is what gets you access to online multiplayer on Xbox consoles as well as a selection of deals and freebies each month. 

If you already use Xbox Live Gold for online play, then, you'd be better-served upgrading to an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription to cover both at the same time. That's because, together, it costs $16.99 / £12.99 / AU$18.95 a month.

For those who need to top up an existing membership, or add more time now the discounted trial has ended, you can find the latest cheap Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deals just below.

Is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate worth the cost?

The Xbox Game Pass Ultimate price currently sits at $14.99 / £10.99 / AU$15.95 a month when you buy a rolling contract through Microsoft. For that, you get access to a massive library of PC and console games that are available to download and play as much as you like through your membership. You can also stream compatible games through other PC and mobile devices - and some even support touch controls. Oh, and you get access to online multiplayer with the included Xbox Live Gold.

It's a comprehensive package, then, if you do a lot of your gaming across the PC and Xbox consoles. And as it's only slightly more expensive than a standard Game Pass membership, it's definitely worth considering an upgrade to this higher value membership.
