Today, we’re announcing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks, a new exclusive member benefit starting March 18 that provides even more value for our Ultimate members. When we launched Xbox Game Pass in June 2017, we did so with the goal of creating a membership that provides the best value in gaming. Our members have told us they love discovering new games but they also want new in-game content. Through Perks, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will now regularly receive new benefits including DLC, in-game content and more – all free and included with membership.
things off, this month members can redeem these Perks for free:
Phantasy Star Online 2: Enter the world of one of Japan’s biggest online RPGs with a special content bundle, which includes unique emotes, in-game cosmetics including an Xbox jacket, a gold ticket Mission Pass and in-game currency with a Meseta Crystal. Available to members in the US and Canada only.
World of Tanks: Mercenaries: A global multiplayer free-to-play game dedicated to tank warfare in the mid-20th century. Start your journey with three powerful tanks and more!
Sea of Thieves: The essential pirate experience, from sailing and fighting to exploring and looting – everything you need to live the pirate life and become a legend in your own right. With Perks, you get a free Ori-inspired Ancestral Sails, Figurehead, Hull, and Flag to adorn your ship.
Smite: Become divine in the #1 MOBA on Xbox, with a bundle that unlocks five Gods, special character skins and voice packs so you can ride into the battle of the Gods in style. With Smite, join a community of 30 million players and defend your portal in showdowns in the Collesium.
We’ll announce new Perks in the future alongside updates to the
Xbox Game Pass catalog, so stay tuned. There’s no need to register or sign-up
for the Perks program; as long as you’re an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, you
can find your Perks on
your console within the Xbox Game Pass tab, in the new Xbox (beta) app on
Windows 10 PC, or within the Xbox Game Pass mobile app. If you are not a member
of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can join today and get your first month
for just $1.
As always, when we try something new, we want your feedback; please
let us know what you think of the Perks program. Your feedback drives the
evolution of Xbox Game Pass, and we appreciate the time you take to help us improve.
And now, I’m excited to share the upcoming titles joining Xbox Game
Pass this month.
