EE brings Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and 5G smartphones together

EE is giving away an exclusive Gaming Unleashed bundle, including 12 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, worth £218 to anyone who buys a new Samsung Galaxy 21 smartphone on any EE Smart Plan.

EE has unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, S21+ 5G and S21 Ultra 5G, and anyone who buys one of them with a Smart Plan will also receive the Gaming Unleashed Bundle. This includes 12 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes more than 100 Xbox games, and a Razer Kishi controller. Gamers will then be able to play their favourite games on the go, using their new smartphone and Cloud Gaming (beta).

More than 15 million people are using Xbox Game Pass to play some of the best-loved games currently available, including Forza Horizon 4, Minecraft Dungeons and Gears 5.

Alistair Wilson, Director of Devices and Partnerships at EE, said: “EE’s award-winning 5G network will ensure customers can make the very most from the latest exciting features the Samsung Galaxy S21 has to offer. Those who take out one of the latest Galaxy S range smartphones on an EE Smart plan will be able to dive into a range of amazing Xbox games via our new Gaming Unleashed Bundle, allowing them to experience a new era in mobile gaming on the number one network for gaming in the UK.”

EE was named the UK’s number one network for gaming by RootMetrics, recording the fastest aggregate median download speed of any network, the lowest packet loss and the lowest jitter during UK-wide testing.

Teaming up with Xbox will enable gamers to enjoy the latest Xbox games, wherever they are. Xbox has committed to providing day-one access to new titles from Xbox Game Studios as part of Xbox Game Pass, and it intends to make those same games available in the cloud from the day they release.

Xbox gaming profiles move with you, so gamers can stop playing on console and continue on mobile from the same point in that game. Friends lists, achievements, controller settings and saved game progress is also available across platforms. This also means that gamers can play Sea of Thieves on their smartphone and friends can join them in the same game from their consoles.
