Xbox Game Pass is a solid offering for anyone who enjoys trying out new games and jumping between titles. A Game Pass Ultimate subscription Access to online multiplayer and a regularly updated library of over 100 games costs $17 per month.
Only on console and not interested in online multiplayer games? Microsoft offers one cheaper level that costs $11 per month. Have you given up on your console? There is a PC only plan for $10. (PlayStation and Switch players should check out our guide to the best subscription services for these platforms.)
The latest tier is called Game Pass Core and costs $10 per month. Game Pass Core is a rebrand of Xbox Live Gold that introduces a smaller version of the Game Pass Ultimate library.
