Now you get 3 months of Marvel Unlimited with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

While Xbox Game Pass is known for gaming, it’s also expanding its horizons to comics. Marvel and Xbox are teaming up for a new offer, allowing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to also try three months of Marvel Unlimited.

A new trailer announcing the deal shows that not only are Marvel’s Avengers on Game Pass, but fans looking to delve deeper into the history of the comics can now have access to the Marvel Unlimited library. There are more than 29,000 comics, the video is proud. So whether you’re new to Marvel heroes or a veteran, there’s probably something new in the library that you haven’t read yet.

It’s not just superhero comics you can read either. I was reminded when this news arrived that Marvel Ultimate includes old Star Wars comics as well, so it might be worth digging through those as well. Marvel Unlimited typically costs around $9.99 a month, so three months of ‘free’ is hardly overlooked: you could easily read all you wanted in that time. OK, with a little compromise.

Xbox Game Pass is increasingly value for money. The subscription service has continued to grow with the arrival of next-gen consoles and recent releases such as Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5. It was reported in January that Xbox Game Pass has over 25 million subscribers. We can’t argue with statistics, can we? Game Pass is popular and with Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzardwill only continue to add more and more value.

When talking to Valve’s Gabe Newell, PC Gamer asked if there were any plans to bring Game Pass to Steam. While there was no current discussion of this, Newell said that “be more than happy to work with them to achieve this on Steam“.

But when there are as many bits and pieces coming to Game Pass as Marvel Unlimited, it’s increasingly tempting for anyone on PC or Xbox to try out the subscription, if only to take advantage of its various introductory offers.
