If you’re thinking of upgrading to the Black Ops 6 Vault Edition without purchasing the base game, here’s how the process works on Xbox Game Pass!

For the first time ever, this year’s new Call of Duty release will be dropping onto Game Pass on day one.

Microsoft has confirmed that all Game Pass subscribers will be able to play Black Ops 6 for no additional cost. But that only extends as far as the base game.

If you want to take advantage of all the Black Ops 6 Vault Edition benefits, you may want to consider upgrading.

How to Upgrade Game Pass Black Ops 6 to Vault Edition

To upgrade your Game Pass version of Black Ops 6 to the Vault Edition, follow these steps:

  • First, make sure you’re an active Game Pass (Console, PC, or Ultimate) subscriber on either Xbox or PC
  • Then, open the Xbox Store on your platform of choice
  • Search for ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 – Vault Edition Upgrade’
  • Finally, purchase the Vault Edition Upgrade ($30)

This will allow you access to all of Black Ops 6’s exclusive Vault Edition rewards, including four new Operator skins, five Mastercraft weapons, the BlackCell Battle Pass, and a GobbleGum pack.

What Happens If You Cancel?

If you cancel your Xbox Game Pass subscription at any time, you will lose access to both Black Ops 6 and your Vault Edition benefits.

After all, you don’t actually own Black Ops 6 with the Vault Edition upgrade – you only own the cosmetics, which are useless without the base game.

You can regain access to your Vault Edition rewards by either resubscribing to Xbox Game Pass, or purchasing the regular version of Black Ops 6. You’ll find all your in-game content waiting for you where you left it.

Black Ops 6 Base Game vs Vault Edition Comparison

If you’re going to be playing Black Ops 6 for a long time but you don’t fancy taking advantage of the Game Pass library, you may want to consider purchasing the game outright.

The full Vault Edition (including Black Ops 6 itself) costs $99.99, but at least you’ll get to keep the game forever.
