Microsoft has revealed that EA Play is coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on November 10. That happens to be the same day that the Series X and Series S consoles will launch, so it should be a particularly eventful day for Xbox fans.
“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,” wrote Xbox’s Sarah Bond.
As we previously reported, Microsoft is bringing EA Play’s library of great games to Xbox Game Pass at no additional cost to the subscriber. That makes the subscription service an especially awesome deal, considering the fact that Xbox Game Pass’s library already comprises nearly 400 titles.
Echoing Microsoft’s original announcement, EA Play will bring the following benefits to Xbox Game Pass’s Ultimate and PC tiers:
- More than 60 of EA’s biggest and best console and PC games like FIFA 20, Titanfall 2 and Need for Speed Heat, as well as titles from some of EA’s most popular franchises like Battlefield, Mass Effect, Skate, and The Sims.
- Exclusive in-game challenges and rewards, special member-only content, discounts on EA digital purchases for DLC, games, and more.
- Access to trials of games for up to 10 hours from best-loved franchises and top titles like Madden NFL 21 and FIFA 21.
- Not only will EA Play titles be available on console and PC, this holiday, 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 at no additional charge.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass PC cost $14.99/month and $9.99/month, respectively. The Ultimate tier not only includes Xbox Live Gold, but the ability to play select games from the cloud on Android phones and tablets.
