EA Play Comes To Xbox Game Pass On PC Tomorrow With Over 60 EA Titles

The Xbox Game Pass is a phenomenal (and affordable) subscription service that gives players immediate access to a plethora of titles at no additional cost. That being said, a common complaint is that the Xbox Game Pass on PC is severely lacking when comparing it to its original console counterpart. Luckily for PC Game Pass holders, that's about to change because over 60 EA titles are making their way onto the Xbox Game Pass PC library starting tomorrow. 

EA Play has already integrated previously with Xbox and Steam, but now it's converging with the PC version of Xbox Game Pass as well. Starting tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. Pacific, Xbox Game Pass PC and Ultimate members will be able to enjoy EA Play on Windows 10 at no additional cost outside of the Game Pass monthly fee. 

So what does this mean for you, dear player? Well, it means that over 60 EA titles are making their way into your library for free, including the well-received Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order single-player experience from Respawn, Star Wars: Squadrons, The Sims, a wide variety of sports games, Titanfall 2, and more. 

There will also be rewards each month for your favorite games. For March, these rewards include: 

  • Gold Team Fantasy MUT packs for Madden 21
  • EA Play Celebration Pack for Madden 21
  • An N7 Weapon Charm for Apex Legends
  • And a few unannounced surprises

Members-only content will also be available for Game Pass owners, including challenges, rewards, and special discounts on games and DLC. Early access trial periods will also be available, much like they have been in the past for EA Play members. 

Don't have Xbox Game Pass yet? Here's why you should look into it: This service has grown immensely since its launch, and the value is unparalleled in the gaming-verse. There are two options to choose from, with the standard Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate. Xbox Game Pass is $9.99, whereas the Ultimate version includes Xbox Live for $14.99. The Xbox Live membership includes monthly free games and exclusive sales on games.
