We already knew that Microsoft was adding EA Play as a free perk for Game Pass subscribers. Today, however, the Xbox team revealed exactly when members will be able to access the service on different platforms. If you have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the service – which normally costs $ 4.99 per month on consoles – will be available on Xbox hardware starting November 10. Yes, that’s the same day both Xbox Series S and X are launched. Owners of PCs with Ultimate or the PC-specific version of Xbox Game Pass will then have access “starting in December,”
Microsoft also reiterated that “some of the best EA Play games” will also be available to stream via xCloud on Android devices. However, the company hasn’t disclosed exactly which titles will be supported. Regardless, the inclusion of EA Play will make Game Pass an even more tempting deal. If you need an upgrade, Game Pass Ultimate now includes: console and PC versions of the subscription service, which are functionally similar but have slightly different libraries, Xbox Live Gold, another subscription required to play console games online, xCloud game streaming and the basic version of EA Play. That’s huge value for $ 14.99 per month.
