What you need to know

  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is Microsoft's Netflix-like subscription service, and one of the best values in gaming.
  • The service also has a Perks program, which gives subscribers tons of freebies for games, other subscription services, and more.
  • The latest Perk to come to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a free 30-day trial of Disney+, the best way to watch anything Disney.
  • The Perk is available starting right now to any Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, and is available to claim until January 31, 2020.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is already one of the best values in gaming, with unlimited access to hundreds of Xbox titles on console and PC with Xbox Game Pass, mobile gaming with Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud), and online access with Xbox Live. The monthly subscription service also includes a Perks program, which gives subscribers in-game content, DLC, and trials to other subscription services like Funimation.

The latest Perk will be huge for a lot of people, giving Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers Disney+ for free. The best way to stream anything Disney like Star Wars, Marvel, the Simpsons, and much more, Disney+ is already a tempting proposition on its own, but this latest partnership with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate means anyone subscribed to Microsoft's service will be able to obtain a free 30-day trial of Disney+, at no additional cost. If you haven't tried Disney+ yet, this is a great way to dip your toes in without committing.

The Mandalorian Season 2 is now available as well, giving people extra incentive to check in with Disney+.

The Perk will be available to redeem until January 31, 2020, to anyone who isn't already subscribed to Disney+. It's just a 30-day trial, not a permanent addition to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, so keep in mind you'll be charged Disney's standard $7/month rate after the trial ends.
