Microsoft Puts an End to the $1 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Trial

New Game Pass subscribers can no longer get their first month for $1 because Microsoft has stopped offering Game Pass introductory promotions.

In a statement to The BargeXbox’s head of global communications, Kari Perez, has confirmed that the offer no longer exists.

“We have suspended our previous introductory offers for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass and are considering various marketing promotions for new members in the future,” said Perez.

$1 trials have been a staple of the Game Pass service for years. New members could try out Xbox Game Pass for a month before renewing with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $14.99/month or the standard monthly subscription for $9.99/month on either PC or console. No word yet on possible alternative marketing promotions for Xbox.

One of the new features in the works is the Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family Plan. This will allow subscribers to share their subscriptions with up to four other friends and family, and Microsoft launched a new level of testing in multiple countries last year.

While the biggest video streaming services have basically all increased their prices in the last year, Xbox Game Pass prices have been stable for some time now. However, Game Pass Ultimate’s $14.99 price tag won’t last forever. Last year, Xbox’s Phil Spencer said, “At some point, I think we’re going to have to raise the price of certain things somewhat.” Shortly after that statement, Microsoft revealed that it was joining Sony by raising the price of its new first-party game to $70.

2023 is going to be a big year for Xbox Game Pass. Fans are already wowed by Hi-Fi Rush Shadowdrop, and Xbox owners will finally get to see big contributions from Bethesda in the form of Redfall and Starfield.
