Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks announced alongside new game arrivals like Ace Combat 7

Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription servicesare gaining a bunch of new games in the second half of March, just as expected. Alongside them, however, the company also unveiled Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks today, a new feature for the $14.99 subscription that offers players additional content for their games like DLC and benefits.

In March, Ultimate subscribers can now claim in-game rewards for Sea of Thieves, Smite, World of Tanks, and Phantasy Star Online 2 in the Xbox Game Pass tab on console, the Xbox beta app on Windows, or the mobile app. These include perks like early unlocks for the free-to-play titles and Xbox game-themed content like a Sea of Thieves ship cosmetics bundle inspired by the Ori series.

Going into the incoming games to the services in the next couple of weeks, some heavy hitters include the Microsoft platform exclusive title Bleeding Edge at launch as well as recent hits like The Surge 2 and Ace Combat 7.

Xbox Game Pass for Console:

  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown - March 19
  • Kona - March 19
  • The Surge 2 - March 19
  • Bleeding Edge - March 24
  • Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid - March 24

Xbox Game Pass for PC:

  • Bleeding Edge - March 24
  • The Surge 2
  • Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  • Astrologaster

The PC titles are only listed as coming soon by Microsoft, but they tend to land around when the console releases happen.

While new games arrive almost weekly, some older arrivals will be leaving the service soon, possibly at the end of the month. See the departing lists below:


  • Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
  • Cities: Skylines
  • The Golf Club 2
  • LEGO Worlds
  • Operencia: The Stolen Sun
  • Vampyr


  • Battle Chef Brigade
  • Cities: Skylines
  • Kingsway
  • Operencia: The Stolen Sun
  • Orwell: Keeping an Eye on You
  • Vampyr

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is still available for $1 to any new subscribers, giving them an entire month to try out the service. Normally costing $14.99, Ultimate provides access to both the Xbox Game Pass for PC and Console variants as well as Xbox Live Gold.
