Some of the best video games ever made – and Rage 2 – are now available to play on PC, console and cloud via Xbox Game Pass.

With Bethesda now officially part of the Microsoft family, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can look forward to some exciting new games in the future, even if some titles retain their exclusivity with other platforms in the short term.

From today, Xbox Game Pass has a lineup of 20 Bethesda published games, including some of the best titles released in recent years.

RPG fans can look forward to playing three mainline games from The Elder Scrolls series, with Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim all included. And if you have played those, you could also try The Elder Scrolls Online, which continues to go from strength to strength.

Five games from the Doom series have also been added to the Game Pass catalogue, as have three titles from the Fallout franchise. Other highlights include The Evil Within, the tragically overlooked Prey, a duo of delicious Dishonored games, and three Wolfensteins. And, umm, Rage 2.
