Xbox Game Pass Ultimate now includes 3 months of Marvel Unlimited

Marvel Entertainment announced a partnership with Microsoft that includes three months of Marvel Unlimited with any Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, highlighting that Xbox Game Pass isn’t just offering a wide variety of games.

Marvel Unlimited Comes to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Marvel Unlimited is a subscription similar to Game Pass but for Marvel digital comics. Subscribers can access over 29,000 digital comics and now that perk comes to Game Pass subscribers for three months. As the usual trial period is seven days, this is a huge bonus to anyone already subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that’s curious about Marvel Unlimited. This comic subscription service is accessible on PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPods, and Android devices, so this bonus goes beyond Xbox consoles.

Marvel Unlimited offers literal decades of reading material and comic reading lists created by Marvel experts, so it’s a great service for anyone unfamiliar with the medium.

This isn’t the first secondary perk that Game Pass Ultimate members have attained from their subscription Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can also currently get a 30-day free trial of Paramount Plus to commemorate the release of the new live-action Halo TV show and in-game bonuses for titles like Apex Legends and Halo Infinite. Previously, Game Pass users could get 75 days of Crunchyroll Premium ad-free as part of a surprise partnership with the Sony-owned anime streaming service. If you have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, make sure you are aware of all the additional perks outside of games that come with it.

Keep in mind that after three months the Marvel Unlimited subscription will switch to a paid one, so keep track of what day you started on so you’ll know when to decide if you want to keep the membership.

Xbox Games Showcase 2024 + Black Ops 6 Direct: How to watch and what to expect
Indiana jones buried in the sand.

Xbox has had a rough year. From the divisive reactions to its multiplatform plans to layoffs and the shuttering of lauded studios like Tango Gameworks, there hasn't been much of a reason to be excited for Xbox recently. Microsoft is hoping to change that on Sunday as it will hold its annual Xbox Games Showcase to give us a glimpse at titles coming from its first-party studios and third-party partners over the course of the next year or two.

It's even holding a Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Direct right after. If you're an Xbox fan, this is obviously an event that you need to tune into. To help with that, we've rounded up everything you need to know about where and when to watch 2024's Xbox Games Showcase and Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Direct, as well as what your expectations for the presentation should be.
When is the 2024 Xbox Games Showcase and Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Direct
The 2024 Xbox Games Showcase will begin at 10 a.m. PT on Sunday, June 9. The Black Ops 6 Direct will begin immediately after that multigame showcase concludes. Although Microsoft has not committed to an exact start time for that Direct, the Xbox Games Showcase has historically lasted anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half.

3 underrated Xbox Game Pass titles to play this weekend (May 31-June 2)
A knight with a large sword prepares to stab a dragon in Lords of the Fallen.

We're right on the precipice of June, which will be chock-full of new game announcements from every publisher. In fact, that wave already started with Sony's May 30 State of Play. Still, just because this time of year is mainly focused on video game announcements doesn't mean you shouldn't be playing anything new. If you're an Xbox Game Pass subscriber in particular, there are three titles you can have a great time with this weekend.

For those excited about Until Dawn's PC and PS5 remake, I recommend you check out developer Supermassive Games' previous narrative title, which is actually available through Game Pass. The other two games are new to the service. One is a Soulslike that was nearly a decade in the making, but paid off that wait by being an impressive title that stands toe-to-toe with FromSoftware's work. The other is one of 2023's best games, a puzzler that will make you think more deeply about how people interact with each other.

Xbox Game Pass has its own Super Mario Odyssey, and it’s a delight
A giant ghost is wrapped in chains in Hauntii.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have a lot of advantages over the Switch, but there's one advantage Nintendo never loses: games. While Sony and Microsoft struggle to put out consistent exclusives, Nintendo always manages to put out fairly high-quality games on a monthly bases (even if some recent releases have felt like filler). The fact that you can only play Super Mario Odyssey on a Nintendo console will always be the company's ace in the hole.

Thankfully, enough developers have been influenced by Nintendo's design that it's not hard to find a great title that scratches the same itch as a Nintendo classic on competing platforms. Just look at games like the Pikmin-inspired Tinykin. Xbox has been especially smart about seeking out games like that over the years and adding them to Xbox Game Pass. It's done that once again with one of its newest additions, the delightful Hauntii.
