Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscribers to Receive 30 Days of Disney+
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers have yet another perk to look forward to this holiday season; Disney+. Subscribers will all receive access 30-days of the subscription service.
Microsoft has been doing its damnedest to make the Xbox ecosystem as attractive as possible for both hardcore consumers and causal players. From offering their exclusive games on PC day-and-date to offering Game Pass Ultimate for $1 for first-time subscribers to offering perks and streaming to mobile devices for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, it’s undoubtedly the best place for players looking to save a little money to start.
Recently, the gaming giant has even started offering non-gaming-related perks, like three months of Postmates Unlimited, half a year of Spotify Premium or even a few months of Discord Nitro to subscribers at no additional cost. Now, Microsoft confirms that Disney+ will be coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks. Subscribers will get a free 30-day trial for the streaming service that’s home to popular titles like The Mandalorian and the rest of the Star Wars movies and TV shows, as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The announcement even warranted a short trailer showing off some brief glimpses of Disney+’s flagship show; The Mandalorian alongside some more details on the collaboration. Much like the rest of the perks offered with GamePass Ultimate, there’s a LOT of fine print. If you’ve already subscribed to Disney+, chances are this offer isn’t attractive to you anyways, but you won’t be able to access the offer if you’ve already subscribed in the past, even for a trial period. It’s also worth noting that just like most other subscription services, users will be charged the monthly rate after the 30 days are up unless they cancel the plan ahead of time.
As we enter into the next generation of gaming with the Xbox Series S and X launching tomorrow, it’ll be very interesting to see how Microsoft and Xbox continue to evolve their strategies, especially those surrounding Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and their other subscription services. We’re at a point where it’s widely recognized as the best deal in gaming and subscription numbers are shooting up, so Microsoft’s response will be very telling about the future of their services and platform.
