Xbox Game Pass continues to feel like one of the best values in video games. While Microsoft could rest on its laurels and still have a pretty good value in its Xbox Game Pass program, Thursday's X019 presentation saw the Xbox team seek to make the program even better. On Thursday, Microsoft outlined the Xbox Game Pass lineup for the rest of the year and beyond, while also outlining a few special perks that Game Pass Ultimate members can take advantage of right now.

Extra Xbox Game Pass Ultimate perks include a free month of EA Access, three free months of Discord Nitro, and six months of Spotify Premium. Normally, these would be incentives to join the program, but the Xbox team is noting that these perks are also available to existing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users. Simply look at the membership area on your Xbox One to claim your perk.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Game Pass PC only has to have one good release a year for it to be worthwhile. Outer Worlds got me my value for this year. If I hadn't already backed Wasteland 3, that would do it for me next year. Really digging this service.
