Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can get a 30-day Disney+ trial

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can now grab a 30-day trial of Disney+. The new perk is available through Microsoft’s game service through January, though with a few caveats.

Starting today, subscribers can get a Disney+ trial at no additional cost. The perk is only available for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, so those who have the PC or Console exclusive versions of the service are not included in the deal.

Players can claim the trial through the perks gallery on their consoles, the Xbox Game Pass mobile app, or via the Xbox app on Windows 10. The perk can be claimed anytime from now until January 31 and must be redeemed before March 2. After the trial is up, the service will automatically renew, costing the normal $7 per month.

The main catch is that the offer is only available for new Disney+ subscribers. Those who already have an account will not get an extra 30 days for free. Subscribers must be 18 or older to claim the deal.

Microsoft recently confirmed that the Xbox Series X and Series S will include the Disney+ app at launch. The streaming service is currently available on the Xbox One and will get its own dedicated button on the PlayStation 5’s new media remote.

The perk is especially valuable considering that Disney is no longer offering free trials of its service. While Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $15 a month, the perk is currently one of the only ways to check out Disney’s streaming service without paying its $7 monthly fee upfront.

If you need a palate cleanser between long RPGs, try this great Game Pass shooter
A character shoots demons in Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun.

Fans of RPGs have been eating well since the beginning of 2024. In fact, there have been more amazing games in this genre alone than most people could reasonably keep up with. As much as I love a deep RPG, even I have to admit I've been feeling a little burnt out after my third or fourth 100-hour adventure. Before we get hit with Unicorn Overlord, Rise of the Ronin, and Dragon's Dogma 2 this month alone, I felt the need for something different to cleanse my palate.

That's when I found Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun.

After watching Dune: Part Two, go play this Xbox Game Pass title
dune spice wars xbox game pass recommendation

Dune: Part Two has taken theaters by storm after a relatively quiet start to the 2024 box office. It’s getting even more people into this franchise, which is the grandfather of a lot of modern sci-fi stories. Dune also has a more storied history with video games than you may think. If you’re in the mood to return to Arrakis and experience more entertainment set within the Dune universe, you don’t have to wait for Dune: Awakening.

There’s a Dune strategy game available right now on Xbox Game Pass across PC, consoles, and cloud called Dune: Spice Wars. If you’ve ever sunk time into strategy games or are most intrigued by the political machinations that happen in the background of Dune’s narrative, then I recommend you try out Dune: Spice Wars after watching Dune: Part Two.
Spice is life
Developed by Shiro Games and published by Funcom, Dune: Spice Wars is a 4X strategy game. For the uninitiated, 4X is an abbreviation of “explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate,” and those kinds of strategy games allow players to do those four things on a massive scale. The most mainstream 4X strategy game series is Sid Meier’s Civilization, and Dune: Spice Wars shares a lot of elements with that game. Of course, it’s set on Arrakis instead of Earth.
