Xbox has announced a massive update for its Game Pass for PC video game subscription service. From today, users signed up on the Xbox Game Pass for PC will get access to EA Play’s library of games at no extra cost, effectively getting two subscription services in one monthly payment.
There’s no word on if this is only for a limited time, but previously this was only a feature available to Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate customers, exclusively for Xbox consoles. Odds are that this will stick around for at least a while. If you’re interested in looking into the Xbox Game Pass some more, check out the link below to be taken straight through to the website. You can pick up Game Pass for PC or Game Pass Ultimate for as little as $1 for your first month and $10.95 for ongoing months ($15.95 for Ultimate).
Xbox Game Pass was already a pretty good deal before this news, with 20 Bethesda games now on its service as of last week, and a massive library of games before then.
What games are now available on Game Pass for PC?
Basically, every game available on EA Play’s base subscription service (not to be confused with EA Play Pro) is now available on all Xbox Game Pass subscription services. This totals out to over 60 additional games under the EA banner. To access these games, all you’ll need to do is link your EA account with your Xbox account.
Of the newly added games, there are a few that stand out. In particular; STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order, STAR WARS: Squadrons, and Titanfall 2, along with the Dead Space and Mass Effect games. Here’s what EA games are now available, according to the Xbox Game Pass website:
