The good news? Microsoft is selling off months to Xbox Game Pass for half price (even more than half in some regions). The bad news? It’s a targeted sale and not everybody is seeing it and we’re unsure of the criteria.
Game Pass has already had a positive start to the year with Microsoft announcing that all of its first-party releases will be available day one for subscribers. So by paying one monthly fee, you’ll get Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2 and any other first-party Microsoft titles that happen to drop.
It’s a great value deal that a lot are sure to jump on.
TrueAchievements reports that the discount for Xbox Game Pass is significant, though not consistent. Members in America are seeing half-price discounts, while European users are seeing savings closer to 66%.
You do need Xbox Live Gold to be eligible, they claim. Also, the months bought apply themselves immediately and cannot be saved for a later date. Users are claiming that though there’s no option to buy multiple months, buying them one-by-one stacks them.
