Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is one of the best deals in all of gaming, and it’s particularly enticing right now. The spooky game The Medium arrives on Game Pass Ultimate the same day it launches, January 28. The Ninja Gaiden-esque game Cyber Shadow comes out January 26, and it’s available for all Game Pass Ultimate subscribers as well. Better yet, you can take advantage of a great Game Pass Ultimate deal, whether you’re a new member or an existing one.
If you’re already a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, you can do a subscription conversion that breaks in your favor. Since EA Play is now included in Game Pass Ultimate, you can convert an EA Play membership into extra months of Game Pass Ultimate. Simply purchase a 12-month EA Play subscription for $29.99 from Amazon, and it will convert into four months of Game Pass Ultimate. That’s quite a deal, considering that three months of Game Pass Ultimate normally costs $44.99.

Those who are new to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate can get three months for just $1, a deal Microsoft has been offering for a while. But just because it’s been around a while doesn’t mean it’s bad.
What is Game Pass Ultimate? For starters, it gets you all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold. That means you can play games online with friends, keep your game saves in the cloud, and you get free games each month.
But the real benefit of Game Pass Ultimate is that it gets you access to a library of over 100 games you can download and play anytime for as long as you’re a member. It includes a revolving library of games, but it also includes all first-party games published by Microsoft, available day one. We’re talking Halo, Gears of War, Forza, Flight Simulator, and everything else. That’s what really makes Game Pass Ultimate one of the very best deals in gaming.
As for the games coming this month, Cyber Shadow arrives January 26. It’s a retro-style game clearly modeled after the NES classic Ninja Gaiden. But it pushes the fast, challenging gameplay even further by giving you a series of new abilities that change the way you play as you progress. You can check out our Cyber Shadow review for more details.
The Medium is the first Xbox exclusive of the year, and it’s an Xbox Series X|S exclusive at that. It’s a horror game that puts you in the shoes of a medium who must travel between the real world and the spirit world to solve a murder. You can find many details in our The Medium preview.
