Xbox Game Pass Summer Quests Kick Off, Gold Xbox One X and Other Prizes on the Line


Summer is officially here, but Microsoft doesn’t want Xbox Game Pass subscribers slacking off. They’ve announced Xbox Game Pass Quests: Summer Edition, a new series of challenges that could earn you a variety of prizes, including a swanky gold-plated Xbox One X Scorpio Edition.

Microsoft have been doing the Game Pass Quests thing for the while, with a gold Xbox One X usually being the ultimate prize (check out one lucky winner unboxing his below), but it seems they’re amping things up this summer. New quests will be added every two weeks, and they’re a bit more in depth than in the past (previously, you just had to do simple things like play Game Pass for a few hours, add a certain number of friends, ect.)
