Xbox Game Pass Introduces Free Perks For Ultimate Subscribers

Microsoft has announced that Perks are the latest addition to Xbox Game Pass, rewarding Ultimate subscribers with everything from in-game content to DLC. In case you weren't aware, Game Pass Ultimate is the highest tier package available for the service, and includes Xbox Live Gold membership as well as access to a wide library of games on both Xbox One and PC.

Starting yesterday, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can take advantage of various content for Phantasy Star Online 2, World of Tanks: Mercenaries, Sea of Thieves and Smite. Here's what you can get courtesy of Xbox Wire:

  • Phantasy Star Online 2: "Enter the world of one of Japan’s biggest online RPGs with a special content bundle, which includes unique emotes, in-game cosmetics including an Xbox jacket, a gold ticket Mission Pass and in-game currency with a Meseta Crystal. Available to members in the US and Canada only."
  • World of Tanks: "Start your journey with three powerful tanks and more!"
  • Sea of Thieves: "With Perks, you get a free Ori-inspired Ancestral Sails, Figurehead, Hull, and Flag to adorn your ship."
  • Smite: "Become divine in the #1 MOBA on Xbox, with a bundle that unlocks five Gods, special character skins and voice packs so you can ride into the battle of the Gods in style."

Looking to the future, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will continue to be rewarded with "DLC, in-game content and more". To get access to your free goodies, head to the Xbox Game Pass tab on Xbox One (we've also seen it advertised on the dashboard), or the Windows 10 (beta) app on PC.
