Introducing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks, a new exclusive member benefit starting March 18th that provides even more value for our Ultimate members. When Xbox Game Pass was launched back in June 2017 launched, it was with the goal of creating a membership that provides the best value in gaming. Game Pass members have been quick with their feedback of the constantly ever-expanding service, lots of love has been shown, but the boffin’s behind the service wanted to go further. Through Perks, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will now regularly receive new benefits including DLC, in-game content and more – all free and included within the membership.
To kick things off, this month members can redeem the following 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 are looking forward to new perks being announced in the future alongside updates to the Xbox Game Pass catalogue and we will share these announcements as soon as we get the details.
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.
And now, I’m excited to share the upcoming titles joining Xbox Game Pass this month.
