What is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and how does it work?
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the definitive Xbox Game Pass subscription format. Its main differential is to encompass all Microsoft platforms. In addition, there are PC Game Pass and Game Pass for console. With Ultimate, the user has access to both and can also enjoy other catalog advantages and additional content in abundance.
How it works is very simple: with an active subscription, you can access the catalog for free and download as many games as your storage allows. Games are active and can be used as long as the account has a valid subscription. If it is canceled or expires, the games are still installed but can no longer be accessed.

In addition, it is worth remembering that the Game Pass catalog is rotating, that is, several games enter and leave the service constantly. This also goes for the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate version. If a game leaves the catalog, it can no longer be played, unless the user buys its full version – it is possible to purchase any game that is in the catalog with 20% off its original price, inclusive.
