I’ll start with this offer because your friends will thank you for telling them: if they haven’t tried Xbox Game Pass Ultimate yet, they can purchase a 3-month membership for just $ 1. Tell them to sign up before it expires so you can talk about it, create memes, and play all of these games together. (But that could be exactly what I do with my friends. You do.)
We have the games you want to play, the deals you want to get and the news you want to hear. Let us begin.
Available December 17th
Unnamed goose game (ID @ Xbox Day One Start)
