Microsoft India will be revising the prices for the Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions. The company will be dropping the subscription rates by roughly 28 per cent, according to Gadgets 360.

In an email to the publication, Microsoft said that it is dropping tariffs according to prevailing market conditions in the country. The newly reduced rates will come into effect from the first of April this year.

An Xbox Live Gold membership allows users to play games online on Microsoft’s servers. On Microsoft India’s website, it is currently priced at Rs 489 just by itself. The price will be revised to Rs 349.

The Xbox Ultimate Pass gives subscribers access to over 100 games on both PC and console and same-day access to Xbox Game Studios titles along with many other member-only perks and rewards. It also includes an Xbox Live Gold subscription and EA Play subscription. After the new rates come into effect, users will be able to get 8 months of membership for Rs 499 per month, as opposed to the existing price of Rs 699 per month.
