Microsoft also announced the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service, which is a combined service of both Xbox Game Pass and Live Gold. The service will give you access to a huge library of free games as well as the online service that comes with Live Gold. It is expected to launch later in 2019.Published 01 May 2019, 18:23 IST
