Earlier in May, Microsoft announced a new subscription service called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that combined Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. The company started testing the new subscription service with Insiders in May, and it’s probably opening up the service to everyone today.
Ahead of its official E3 keynote, Microsoft’s subscription page for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has been made public. The subscription service gives users access to Xbox Live Gold benefits, as well as all the games part of Xbox Game Pass.
If you still have prepaid months of your Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold subscription left, Microsoft will count it towards your new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription based on a conversion rate:
After upgrading to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, a conversion ratio will be used if you add Xbox Live Gold codes (after the upgrade). Conversion ratio:
1 month gold -> 20 days Ultimate. (3:2)
3 months -> 2 months. (3:2)
12 months -> 4 months. (3:1)https://t.co/CgPyaundWi https://t.co/hgBC7XngCo
