Microsoft seems ready to correct one of the big problems compared to its most direct competition: Sony. It seems that shortly The requirement to have an active Gold or Ultimate Game Pass subscription will be eliminated in order to enjoy free titles on Xbox.
This move was certainly a necessary thing. We all remember the phenomena Fortnite, Warzone, o Rocket League among many other examples. The ability to play for free without a subscription on the competitor’s machine has helped their sales and has been a hotly criticized topic on Xbox One.
It will also affect finding playgroups as well as chatting with friends, which are also inactive options if we did not have an active subscription. These changes have now reached the initiates and it shouldn’t be long before they can be enjoyed by all.
Microsoft, a machine in constant motion
Interestingly, this happens months after the Redmond company attempted to increase the price of the Xbox Live Gold subscription. After a vigorous protest from all users, not only did this reverse, but Microsoft made the monthly free titles no longer require a Gold membership to access them.
Of course, not only is Game Pass continually evolving. Rumors about the acquisition of Discord, the already completed official acquisition of Bethesda and the possibility of acquiring new studios show very clearly that in this generation Microsoft will not come out scared or with downcast arms in front of the Japanese giant Sony.
Marketing movements, active listening to users or their commitment to integration are some of the factors this generation is exciting, at the same time full of hope, for the user of the Xbox ecosystem. We will see that new surprises await us in the coming months. In the meantime, stay tuned to AreaXbox for more details.
