Microsoft just revealed Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, an all-inclusive Xbox One subscription, compiled of its existing Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold memberships. The former currently grants access to a Netflix-style library of over 200 titles, while Gold unlocks the full capabilities of its gaming network. Bundling the two in-house Xbox subscriptions into a cohesive package, the merger makes the duo available for one $14.99 monthly fee.

As first unveiled during Microsoft's Inside Xbox broadcast, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is roughly $5 cheaper than purchasing Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass separately, on a month-by-month basis.

It's an ideal proposition for those invested in both services, cutting down monthly cost and condensing payments. However, Microsoft has committed only to $14.99 monthly pricing, without any indication of upfront prepaid annual plans.

From Microsoft's press release:

We heard you. Today, we're excited to announce Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will include all of the benefits of Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass. That means the full Xbox Game Pass library of over 100 high quality games, and Xbox Live Gold online multiplayer, in one convenient membership for $14.99 a month. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, gamers will be able to play together on the most-advanced multiplayer network and discover their next favorite game.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate expected in 2019

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is "coming later this year" and will be available across all existing Xbox Game Pass regions. Microsoft plans to trial the package via the Xbox Insider Program in the meantime, now distributing invites to a "limited number" of members.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate pairs smartly with the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, its ambitious disc-less console set for a May 7, 2019 release. Ditching its optical disc drive to pursue a $249 retail price, Microsoft continues to embrace the ever-connected nature of online gaming services.
