Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the combination of two current programs: Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold. Subscribers to Ultimate will have access to both for one monthly subscription cost instead of two separate and, at its regular price, it offers a $5 discount. Additionally, the new Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription is also included with Game Pass Ultimate.
Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that offers complete access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games. You can download these to your console to play in full for as long as you're a paying subscriber or the titles in question remain in the Game Pass library. Better yet, if a Game Pass title also supports Xbox Play Anywhere, you get access to play those on your PC, as well, as part of your subscription. The PC-specific Game Pass subscription has its own list of games, some of which are a crossover with the console, but many are exclusive to PC.
Meanwhile, Xbox Live Gold features provide you with a number of perks. The first is access to online multiplayer in any Xbox One game, so if you want to play with friends you need Gold. More than that, though, Gold gives you free games every month that are yours to keep. Gold subscribers also earn exclusive discounts on games from the Microsoft Store, as well as additional discounts during special promotional periods.
Learn everything you need to know about Game Pass Ultimate and see all the games available for Game Pass for PC. Game Pass adds new games all the time and will include new ones as they get released, like titles Red Dead Redemption 2, DayZ, and a bevy of games from the Final Fantasy franchise.

Mine's expires in July. This would get me through the rest of the year. Just think, when the series X releases we won't even have to buy a game. Between what was shown last week and the next events, there will be close to 10 games on game pass at launch. Now I understand why Phil Spencer said that they didn't want to release too many first party games at launch.
