As promised by Microsoft last year, Electronic Arts’ game subscription service, EA Play, is coming to the PC tier of Xbox Game Pass. The company reiterated the news in an Xbox Wire post this morning, noting that EA’s catalog would finally be enabled tomorrow on March 18 at 2:00 p.m. PT (5:00 p.m. ET). Xbox Game Pass PC subscribers will be able to enjoy as many as 60 games from EA’s stable, which range from newer hits such as Star Wars: Squadrons to older classics such as Command & Conquer.

“Since teaming up with Electronic Arts, we’ve been working to provide Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC members an EA Play membership at no additional cost,” Microsoft wrote. “We want to thank the PC community for your patience over the past few months as we worked to deliver a better Xbox App experience for EA Play.”

“[…] Xbox Game Pass PC and Ultimate members will be able to enjoy all the benefits of EA Play on Windows 10, including more than 60 of EA’s biggest and best PC games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, FIFA 20, Titanfall 2 and Need for Speed Heat, as well as titles from some of EA’s most popular franchises like Battlefield, Madden NFL, Command & Conquer, and The Sims.”

Xbox Game Pass PC subscribers will need to download EA Desktop (EA’s new next-generation PC platform app) and link their EA accounts in order to play EA Play titles. Additional perks of the service include monthly rewards from select games (e.g., an N7 Weapon Charm for Apex Legends in March), exclusive in-game challenges, discounts on purchases, and access to 10-hour trials.
