Xbox Live Warning: Amazing Xbox One deal and Free Apex Legends Coins as new games revealed

Xbox Live Gold is practically a necessity if you’re an Xbox gamer. 

The service allows you to play with your friends online, download a few free games per month courtesy of the Games With Gold initiative (more on that below) and also confers many more bonuses on you, too (including access to some amazing sales every now and then). 

So we’re always looking for good offers on subscriptions to the service.

This week, we’ve got something that combines the great value of Xbox Live Gold and free-to-play game Apex Legends – a combo pack that offers a massive 6 months of membership to the Microsoft service, and 1000 Apex coins to boot.

You can find the deal here

So if you’re subscription has lapsed or is set to lapse soon, it’s well worth taking advantage of the offer. It’s also fairly important since the price of Xbox Live increased earlier in May.

“As of May 08, the 12-month subscription fee for Xbox Live Gold is increasing from £39.99 to £49.99 to address changing market conditions,” reads a Microsoft email.

“All current subscribers will keep their current subscription fee for 90 days. You will be charged the new price effective August 7, 2019 unless you choose to cancel your subscription before the next scheduled payment.”

So with three months of Xbox Live Gold now having risen from £14.99 to £17.99 and annual subscriptions increasing by 25% to £49.99, any extra you can save is a welcome relief.

The deal we’ve spotted is a promotional offer that is only valid for the next few weeks.

Once you purchase the pack, you will receive three items:

1) Xbox Live 3 Month Gold Membership [Xbox Download Code]
2) Xbox Live 3 Month Gold Membership [Xbox Download Code] – note: this code must be redeemed before June 14th, 2019
3) Apex Legends: 1000 Coins [Xbox Download Code] – note: must be redeemed before June 14th, 2019

On their own, these items would usually cost over £38 – so a discount of £8 or over isn’t worth sticking your nose up at. Especially if you’re a big Apex Legends player with Season 2 also on the horizon.

But in the meantime you can also download some cracking new free games today thanks to the Xbox Live refresh.

Details of which you can find, just below.
