On top of announcing the release date and price for their next-generation console, Xbox has also revealed an impressive addition to the Game Pass: EA Play.
EA Play (formally known as EA Access) is joining up with the Xbox Game Pass. Even better, it’s doing so at no extra cost for current Game Pass Ultimate subscribers this Holiday season.
Today, we’re excited to announce the next step in this journey. We are teaming up with Electronic Arts to provide Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC members with an EA Play membership at no additional cost starting this holiday. This means Ultimate members can enjoy EA Play on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Windows 10 PCs, and Xbox Game Pass for PC members get EA Play on Windows 10.
Formerly known as EA Access and Origin Access, EA Play will bring the best of EA to Game Pass, including:
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.
That’s a WHOLE lot of games that you can cycle through. Hell, the Game Pass on its own was a solid value, but the addition of EA Play makes it a must have for any owner of their consoles. For me, this is the Xbox’s biggest selling point going into the next-gen as it offers up well over 100 games to play at any time, with new additions added on the regular.
