Microsoft has rolled out its new service — Xbox Game Pass. It has an extensive game catalogue and also a few handy features. And now you can get the Game Pass Ultimate for just one dollar. So what's behind the $1 bargain? And what exactly will you get for this kind of money?

One Buck Luck

Presented as a "lifehack" by Microsoft, the deal will grant you access to Game Pass Ultimate. Which means, you'll get a key to about 100 titles brought by the likes of Sega, Bethesda, Deep Silver, and other studios. Some of the games include:

  • Astroneer;
  • Metro Exodus;
  • Book of Demons;
  • Forza Horizon 4;
  • The Banner Saga 2;
  • Wasteland 2: Director's Cut;
  • Halo Wars 2, etc.

As you can see, the library is especially rich with sequels. Other features include Xbox One voice control from Alexa-powered devices and the "play later" feature. The latter reminds you to resume a game previously abandoned.

Deal or no Deal?

The service is also available for PC players, but only if they have Windows 10. Though the game library seems to be huge, it's packed with relatively-known titles, missing some of the big games. Remember, that $1 fee can be paid for the first month of service usage only. Its regular price is $14.99.
