Microsoft announces Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Single membership program combines Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for $15/mo

Today during Inside Xbox, head of gaming services Ben Decker announced a new subscription service that combines the benefits of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

The single membership subscription will cost $14.99 per month and gives subscribers access to the Xbox Game Pass library of over 100 games, as well as Xbox Live Gold's online services.

The subscription will launch later this year and is not a required upgrade. Those subscribed to either Xbox Live or Xbox Game Pass can keep their current memberships as they are ($10 per month apiece), or opt to apply any balance they've already paid toward an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Members of the Xbox Insider program are able to begin testing the service in select markets beginning today.
