The video game industry is quickly moving away from a single-purchase model to one of monthly and yearly subscriptions. Pay a monthly or yearly fee and get access to more games than you could imagine, and even score free games on their release date. Microsoft jumped into this pool with their Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. For those interested, here’s how to get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on PC.

In order to get all the benefits of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on PC, players will want head to the Xbox website. You should be re-directed to the specific portal for your country, and then you’ll need to log in. If you have an Xbox you probably have an account, and that’s what you’d sign in with here, or if you don’t you could use any Microsoft account, such as an Outlook address as an example. If you don’t have an account (which would be odd if you’re using Windows) you can create one.

One of those links will be Game Pass and clicking that dropdown will present the option to click Overview. This will be where you can learn more about Game Pass Ultimate.
