This service has many features that enhance the users’ experience of the Xbox platform like the ability to freely download and play hundreds of Xbox games for a limited time. Gain access to exclusive deals and discounts that will help you save tons of money when purchasing games. And play Xbox games on the go through your mobile devices thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming, all for a small monthly fee.
There are so many more benefits to subscribing to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. One of which is one of the more underappreciated aspects of the service — Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks. Every month, subscribers will be rewarded with Perks that contain in-game items and free access to the premium features of third-party apps.
The list of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks on offer changes from month to month. So, we have decided to compile a list of all Game Pass Perks currently available and update it when new Perks arrive. This way, you can keep up to date on the latest Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks and grab them at your leisure.
What are Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks?
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks can best be described as free downloadable content provided by Microsoft as a reward for those who subscribe to the service. These Perks can take the form of in-game items like player costumes, weapon skins, playable characters, or even in-game currency that can be used to purchase content from the in-game stores.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks aren’t just for video games; they also apply to third-party apps. For example, some Perks can grant you temporary free access to the premium features of a third-party app like Discord or Spotify, which generally require you to pay a separate monthly fee to access.
There are some caveats when obtaining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks. For starters, the Perks are only available on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. If you only have a free or an Xbox Live Gold account or are only subscribed to Game Pass PC or Game Pass Console, you will need to upgrade it to an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate account to claim the Perks.
Secondly, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks are available for a limited time, so you will need to claim the Perks before the time limit on them expires. Once you have claimed a Perk, you then receive a grace period where you must redeem the Perk’s code before the appointed deadline. And thirdly, you will need to own the game or app the Perks are associated with before you can use them.
