Xbox Game Pass has firmly established itself as the best digital gaming library out there, and it keeps getting better every month. With hundreds of games already available and new ones added each month - including many first-party exclusives - a subscription is a no-brainer for both Xbox console and Windows 10 gamers alike.

So, how does it work? New Xbox Game Pass games arrive on the service each month, and well over 300 are available to download right now so long as you have an active subscription. What's more, Xbox exclusives like the upcoming Halo Infinite hit Game Pass on the day of release with no extra charge. That means you can play some of the best Xbox games for a fraction of the cost.

Even though a handful of third-party releases disappear from the service every now and then due to lapsed rights, there are more than enough hot games to replace them. Some, such as Destiny 2: Beyond Light, will keep you busy for weeks. Check out our list of the best games on Xbox Game Pass for the highlights.

How much will Game Pass set you back, though? It depends on which version you go for. There are three tiers of Xbox Game Pass available: Console, PC, and Ultimate. The first two get you Xbox Game Pass on your Xbox One or computer, and both clock in under $10 / £10 (Xbox is $9.99 / £7.99 per month, while PC is more like $4.99 / £3.99pm). At the other end of the scale is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. This gives you access to the Xbox and PC libraries as well as Xbox Live Gold. Although it's more expensive, it's also better value for money overall.

With that out of the way, let's get down to the deals.

Xbox Game Pass deals

While the service itself is awesome, Xbox Game Pass deals can still be pricey - especially if you go for a full year's subscription. With that in mind, we've hunted down the cheapest offers from across the internet to save you money. These are updated every 30 minutes, so be sure to check back in every now and then if you can't see a bargain today.

Would you rather get Xbox Live instead? Don't forget to check out the best Xbox Live deals. We have a feeling the money you save there will come in very handy if you're on the lookout for Xbox Series X deals...
