Microsoft brings back its £1/$1 Game Pass Ultimate trial

For how long? We're not sure.

Microsoft has reintroduced its £1/ $1 Game Pass Ultimate trials.

The company stopped offering the trials back in March, saying it was "evaluating different marketing promotions". However it seems Microsoft has decided to make a u-turn on this decision.

This follows the recent announcement that Microsoft is increasing its Game Pass Ultimate pricing, which now costs £12.99/€14.99/$16.99 a month, while its console only option costs £8.99/€10.99/$10.99.

We're unsure how long this trial offer will stick around for, so if you want to give Game Pass a try, we recommend starting your Game Pass trial today.

There are many great reasons to join Game Pass and even with the recent price hike, it's still one of the most affordable ways to access and play a bunch of amazing games. Not only is there an extensive library of games to play, there are new titles added each month, including lots of Day One launches and exclusive Xbox games like the upcoming Starfield.

If you don't already own an Xbox console, we wrote about how you can save money on the Series S, Series X and the new 1TB Black Series S over at VG247. Prime Day is also fast approaching, which we expect will offer lots of discounts on Xbox games and accessories- maybe a console bundle or discount too.
