Xbox Quests Announced, Allowing Subscribers to Earn Prizes and More

Xbox Quests allows players to earn prizes by completing certain tasks, although what those prizes are have yet to be announced.

While Xbox Live Gold Members already enjoy online multiplayer and free games on both Xbox One and Xbox 360, soon they will be getting a brand new benefit called Xbox Quests. The feature will allow members to earn mystery prizes each month by completing certain tasks.

While the prizes for this month are being kept under wraps right now, the tasks are not. Players who log in to Mixer on five different days, increase their Gamerscore by 400 points, and download two Games with Gold will receive a reward and be entered to win a 55” Samsung 4K TV.

Xbox Quests seems similar Sony’s PlayStation Live program, in which players can earn PlayStation avatars and themes by completing tasks. The main difference here is that these tasks can only be done on a website, while Microsoft’s tasks can be completed elsewhere.

The only thing required to participate in Xbox Quests is an Xbox Live Gold Membership. All prizes will be sent to your message center on your Xbox One.

It’s always nice to see subscription services become more valuable, and with the Xbox One X coming out next Tuesday, there couldn’t have been better timing. In other Xbox Live Gold news, the list of free games for the month of November was announced.
