Some deals are just so simple they don't require much explanation beyond the title. This one sort of speaks for itself, doesn't it? Subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for PC (opens in new tab) for just $1 and get it for three full months. The subscription costs $9.99 a month normally, so you're saving about $29 here. Once the three months are up it will automatically renew at the regular price, but by then you'll probably be pretty addicted to the plethora of games available on the service. If not, you can cancel at any time with no issues. (If you can't see this deal, you may already be subscribed or have subscribed in the past. It's supposed to be limited to new users, but that does sometimes include returning users who haven't been subscribed in a while.)
It's basically Netflix for video games, and it's one of the best deals around even at full price. This is the best time to have Game Pass, too, with some amazing new games coming out.
You can also get Game Pass Ultimate (opens in new tab) for just $1 for one month, which would normally cost $14.99. That includes Game Pass for PC and some other stuff like Xbox Live and Game Pass for your console. Depending on how you play, you might prefer that option even if the savings aren't as great.
Much like streaming video services like Netflix, Microsoft's Game Pass for PC gives you access to a huge number of titles. Most importantly, I think, is that it gives you access to brand new titles that would otherwise cost you a lot of money. You could be playing Age of Empires IV, Back 4 Blood, Forza Horizon 5, and all sorts of other games without paying for them beyond your regular subscription. It's a great way to try out some other titles that you might not have played otherwise, too, like The Forgotten City or One Step from Eden. Check out all the games coming and going from Game Pass in November.
