Xbox Game Pass Core vs Ultimate – Which To Choose?

Wondering if Xbox Game Pass Core or Ultimate is the best for you? Check out this guide to understand the features and the games list.

Xbox Game Pass Core is an evolved version of Xbox Live Gold that releases on September 14 and players are wondering if they should pick that or the Game Pass Ultimate. While both are pretty amazing in terms of what they offer and the value for money, the choice will somewhat come down to what your needs are from the Game Pass. In this guide, we will show you what each Game Pass has to offer so that you can make your choice before the day of release comes close.

With Xbox Live Gold ending in September, players are stuck between a difficult choice, whether they should choose Game Pass Core or Ultimate. Since both provide amazing value based on the features they provide, it would understandably be a hard choice. Personally, I would want to go with the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate since the benefits it provides when compared to the other is on a higher scale. As you read further, you will understand why I recommend it.

From the image above, players can check out all the plans that Microsoft will make active from September and what benefits each of them provides. As you can see, the Xbox Game Pass Core is priced at 9.99$/month and you get a catalog of 25 games along with Online console multiplayer options. The Online console multiplayer allows you the multiplayer option which other players can’t have unless it is a free to play game.

While that is a good option and the game catalog is great, players can spend another 6$ monthly and reap far greater benefits. Along with the multiplayer option, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate boasts a far bigger catalog of games compared to Core along with EA Play and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

However, if you are someone who simply prefers the majority of online games and want nothing to do with the other games, you can go for the Xbox Game Pass Core. It is quite similar to Xbox Live Gold and if you found that plan useful, you should continue with Game Pass Core.
