Microsoft just launched Xbox Game Pass Core, its newest subscription taking the place of Xbox Live Gold. This means the Xbox Live service is being retired and replaced by the Game Pass Core, which offers a wider range of benefits and features. In this article, we will break down the differences between the two subscriptions to help you decide which one is right for you.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate comes with Live Gold bundled in, which means it gives you access to all of the same perks, including access to online multiplayer, free games, and exclusive discounts. It also includes Game Pass for both console and PC, providing access to a vast library of games. Currently, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $17 per month, but with a trick, you can get it at over 50 percent off for up to two years.
On the other hand, Xbox Game Pass Core focuses solely on the Game Pass benefits without the inclusion of Xbox Live Gold. It offers access to over 100 high-quality games, including new releases from Xbox Game Studios on the day of their release. Game Pass Core is available for $10 per month, making it a more affordable option for those who are primarily interested in the game library.
