Microsoft has, and wants everyone who buys them to subscribe to . Disney has a n , and wants everyone to . So it makes sense that the two US giants are teaming up.
Starting Tuesday, members of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will get a free month of Disney Plus. If you are a member, or are considering becoming one, you’ll have until Jan. 31 to claim your month. To claim your prize, head into the Perks Gallery on your console.
The standard Xbox Game Pass costs $10 and gives you access to over 100 Xbox One, PC and, soon enough, Xbox Series X|S games. This currently includes Gears 5, Halo: Master Chief Collection, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Outer Worlds, and Sea of Thieves. Game Pass Ultimate costs $15 per month, and lets you use the service on your PC and, in a more limited capacity, your smartphone.
The Xbox Series X and S launch on Tuesday, and Microsoft is no doubt seeking to drum up interest in Game Pass, which will underpin its next generation of gaming. Meanwhile, Disney Plus turns one year old on Nov. 12 — which means everyone who bought a yearly membership at launch is about to get the option to not renew their subscription.
