Welcome to the Next Chapter of Xbox Game Pass Quests
Today, we are launching a massive update to Xbox Game Pass Quests, giving you more Quests, more ways to earn, and more points. We have listened to your feedback and enlisted the help of our valuable Insider community to bring the best possible Quest experience to all our members. Let’s dig into what’s new, what’s changed, and most importantly, how you can earn those points.
We have more Quests… a lot more. Try somewhere around 90. We have Quests that you can complete every day, some that are every week, some that are every month and exclusive weekly Quests for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.
Our goal with the Quests program is to help you discover and try new games and be rewarded for playing the Xbox Game Pass games you love. We heard your feedback about improving Quests and making this a better experience while gaming, so you can now play any Xbox Game Pass console game to earn points. We’ll still have Quests around specific games, so Quests will continue to be a great way for you to discover games you may not have tried yet. You will also get notified in real time when you complete a Quest! Even if you complete a Quest without knowing it, you’ll get a notification, so you never leave points on the table.
How Do I Earn Points?
Some Quests are completed based on your progression of specific game stats. You can find game stats for a specific game by going to “Achievements,” click “See all my achievements,” then pick a game from the games list below “Compare Games” and choose “Stats” in the left-hand menu underneath “Achievements.” If you do not see your game in the list, launch the game and once you come back to the achievements overview, you should see the game.
You can download the Xbox Game Pass mobile app to see all the Quests available now or check out the quest page on your console. Take a look at some you can get in on right now until March 2:

Keep an eye on the Xbox Game Pass Twitter account, we’ll share regular reminders about Quests (along with our general shower thoughts that pop into our brains about video games). Happy gaming everyone!
It's basically 'engage yourself fully into the Microsoft Xbox and Bing ecosystem and you'll never have to purchase another game ever again.'
For the committed, it's already entirely possible to subscribe to Xbox Live Ultimate for the majority of the year without paying for it, and with this adjustment to Quests you won't have to pay at all.
