Each month on Xbox One and PlayStation you can download and play a selection of free games as part of your Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Aether is more than just free games, though. It also gives Xbox One X's, Xbox One's or even original Xbox One owners a chance to play their games online and discounts on many of the electronic games in the Xbox Store.
UK membership usually costs £17.99 for three months or £49.99 for a full year membership when paid up front. Alternatively, you can choose to pay monthly for $6,99 per month.
In our opinion, the best way to subscribe is through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. For just £10.99 per month, you get an Xbox Live Gold membership for Xbox Game Pass with access to over 200 games to download and play, plus the game will run on PC with over 100 titles on Windows 10.
