The Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft’s latest offering for the next-gen consoles and PC. The subscription-based model is the next big thing as Microsoft plans to revolutionize the way the industry functions. Another bit of exciting news came when fans found out that EA Play is coming to Xbox Game Pass. Now, the company has finally announced when the entire EA Play library will be available on the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
The company announced that EA play is coming to Game Pass Ultimate on November 10. Interestingly, This is also the day the Xbox Series X and S come out. The official blog reads “Today I’m announcing that starting November 10, EA Play will be available on Xbox consoles, including Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and beginning in December, members with an Ultimate or PC subscription will be able to download and play games from the EA Play library on Windows 10 PCs.*
“That means we will have a whole new collection of games coming your way on console and PC, and that some of the best EA Play games will also be available for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to play on Android devices via the cloud.”
The one thing to notice here is that the EA Play library is only available to Ultimate members. The regular Game Pass subscribers will not have this option. Both the offerings have a $5 price difference. As a result, it looks like Microsoft wants people to get more subscriptions for the Game Pass Ultimate. It also seems like a good deal considering the Game Pass Ultimate also offers access to the xCloud service. This will definitely give the potential consumers an added incentive to go for the premium option.
Microsoft’s latest acquisition of Bethesda and many other studios also spells great news for subscribers. For instance, Doom Eternal is set to be the first game to arrive to the Game Pass soon. This will be yet another reason for people to sign up for this subscription service. Microsoft is looking to change the way people perceive games and it seems they are doing a great job so far.
