How To Get MLB The Show 24 On Xbox Game Pass

You've got two ways to get MLB The Show 24 on Xbox Game Pass. If you're happy to wait until launch day (March 19th), you'll simply be able to download and play it with your subscription at no extra charge.

If you're desperate to play before then, there's a special Game Pass offer called the "MLB The Show 24 Digital Deluxe Add-On Bundle" that you can take advantage of. This gives you all the content in the Deluxe Edition aside from the game itself, which obviously will become playable with Game Pass on the 19th anyway. Even though you don't get the game in the bundle, you do get playable early access until it lands on the service next Tuesday.

This Add-On Bundle costs £39.99 / $39.99, and is available on the Xbox Store right now.

"If you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and pre-order the Digital Deluxe Add-On Bundle, you will get access to MLB The Show 24 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on March 15th 2024 — four days early."
