This week alone looks to only continue the number of announcements Microsoft has issued in regards to Xbox Game Pass. Already, the Xbox company welcomed the addition of approximately 20 games to the monthly service from Bethesda with the firm’s official finalization for its acquisition of parent company Zenimax Media.
The following Monday, Microsoft went to issue that both Undertale will headline the Xbox Game Pass in addition to the launch adding of People Can Fly’s Outriders at the start of next month, April 1. In extension to that, the firm continued by pressing on more games like Yakuza 6: Song of Life, Octopath Traveler, and Empire of Sin the second Xbox Game Pass increment for March.
Now in a new Xbox Wire blog post, Microsoft furthers its momentum with Xbox Game Pass. This time unique to Xbox Game Pass for PC, the firm shares that EA Play is officially coming tomorrow on March 18. It was originally understood the addition would arrive back in December, but never arrived with no direct reason for the decision.
Microsoft also offered a step-by-step video on how to use EA Play which you can view in the footage below:
“We want to thank the PC community for your patience over the past few months as we worked to deliver a better Xbox App experience for EA Play,” Microsoft pens in the blog post. In addition, the firm also remarks, “More than 60 of EA’s biggest and best PC games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, FIFA 20, Titanfall 2 and Need for Speed Heat, as well as titles from some of EA’s most popular franchises like Battlefield, Madden NFL, Command & Conquer, and The Sims.”
One thing worth noting about the delay for EA Play coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC, it is suspected that the PC app for EA Play on desktop is to blame. Thurrott’s Brad Sams explains as such in a tweet following the announcement on Wednesday.
Also relevant to the announcement, the release for Xbox Game Pass on PC support of EA Play comes at an even better time. In that, games like Madden NFL 21, Star Wars Squadrons, and NHL 21 are headline for EA Play List for March and leading into April. You can read the full report by heading here.
