PC gamers are finally able to (EA) play along with Xbox Game Pass.
Xbox Game Pass for PC players will be able to sink their teeth into some of the biggest EA franchises from today.
Originally slated to arrive Holiday 2020, the service’s addition to Game Pass was pushed back for PC players, despite arriving on Xbox consoles in November. However, a recent post from Xbox revealed that the additional service will be arriving, at no extra charge, to PC Game Pass subscribers today.
Rebranded in August last year, EA Play existed as its own subscription service, originally titled EA Access and EA Origins. The service offers popular Electronic Arts titles, including Battlefield V, Need for Speed Heat, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. With the recent inclusion of 20 Bethesda titles just last Friday, this addition will come as another great reason to remain subscribed for PC players.
EA Play doesn’t just come with free games to download. The service also offers a 10% discount on all existing EA based products. This means Game Pass players on PC will now be able to receive a discount on anything from Apex coins to the upcoming Mass Effect Legendary Edition. EA Play also offers up exclusive challenges and rewards, early trials of new releases, and member-only content.
Microsoft’s Game Pass is easily proving itself to be one of the most valuable services available to gamers. While a little late to the party with EA Play’s delayed launch on PC, PC subscribers will be ecstatic to see more than 60 games and perks arrive on the service today.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
