The gaming industry is gradually shifting away from using hard copies with the growing popularity of digital downloads. The Xbox Series X and S consoles are no different so with that in mind; here is everything you need to know about redeeming game codes on the latest Microsoft offerings.
Gamers are gradually leaning more towards digitally downloading games rather than picking up hard copies. This is because of the convenience of getting the game at home easily without the risk of damaging the disk at any point, needing to wait on deliveries, or having to leave the house at all. The Xbox Series X and S are no exceptions to this change.
The Xbox Series S doesn’t even come with a disc drive, and can only be used to play digitally-downloaded games. Players can use the the Xbox Game Pass to gain access to a huge variety of downloadable games that they can purchase by redeeming codes. This guide will summarise how to redeem codes on the Xbox series X and S consoles.
How to redeem Xbox Series X/S codes
You can redeem game codes easily since it is a very straightforward process. Turn on your console and then follow these instructions:
- Sign into the Xbox account that you want to redeem the game code on.
- Open the Microsoft Store app from your Home Screen (it is the icon that looks like an Xbox shopping bag).
- Scroll down until you see the Redeem Code section (resembling a QR code) under your account name.
- Open it and enter the 25-character code before hitting “Check Code.”
Redeeming an Xbox Series X/S code through your browser works a bit differently. For that you need to:
- Go to redeem.microsoft.com.
- Sign into your Microsoft Account.
- Enter the 25-character code.
- Turn on your Xbox and download the game.
The process for Redeeming Codes is simple enough, but if your account has an outstanding balance then you may face some issues. Be sure to check out our other Xbox guides on Charlie INTEL!
