From The Verge: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers are getting new in-game content as part of their subscription, Microsoft has announced. The new “Perks” vary by game, but they range from unique emotes and in-game cosmetic items in Phantasy Star Online 2 to free ship parts in Sea of Thieves. World of Tanks: Mercenaries players, meanwhile, will get access to three tanks, or you can get a bundle of five Gods, character skins, and voice packs in Smite.
All of the Perks will be enabled automatically for subscribers, and they can be found in the Xbox Game Pass tab on console, in the Xbox beta app on Windows 10, or in the Xbox Game Pass mobile app. Microsoft says it will announce new Perks as part of future Xbox Game Pass catalog updates.
Announced last April, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate combines Microsoft’s Game Pass subscription service with an Xbox Live Gold subscription. It saves you around $5 a month compared to the cost of paying for the two services separately. Now, if you’re the kind of person who likes to spend money on additional in-game content, it could potentially save you a little more.
