The Xbox Series X is priced at £28.99 and the Xbox Series S at £20.99 monthly. This also comes with 24-month Game Pass Ultimate – a library of the best games for you and your friends on the same plan to enjoy.

Plus, as recently announced, EA Play will be coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate later this year, which will give you access to some of EA’s flagship titles such as FIFA, Battlefield and the Star Wars franchise.

What to expect from the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

  • Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s most powerful console ever made. It comes with brand new console features like hardware-accelerated Direct X raytracing, framerates up to 120 frames per second, faster loading times, and Quick Resume for multiple games. Playing will look and feel better, no matter which games you choose to play on day one.
  • Xbox Series S offers next-generation performance in their smallest console at a more affordable price. Perfect for digital-first gamers, the Xbox Series S includes the new Xbox Wireless Controller, also in Robot White. This controller will be available as a standalone purchase later this year and includes improved ergonomics, the hybrid D-pad, and textured grip on the triggers, bumpers and back, as well as the new dedicated Share button.
