EA Play is now included with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for consoles
Those who have an Xbox One, One S, One X, Series S, or Series X can now enjoy EA Play titles included with their Game Pass Ultimate subscription. This doesn’t just give you access to a single game, but everything that EA Play has to offer, though Play Pro titles are excluded from this deal.
“We want players to access the games and in-game benefits they want, in the easiest way possible. This partnership with Xbox makes an impressive library of great Xbox and EA content more readily accessible. Our goal is to give players more choice to get more of what they love, and this is a way to do that.“Autumn Brown Sr. Director, Content Strategy and Partnerships, Electronic Arts
PC gamers will have to wait a month before they can enjoy this perk
While console players can start taking advantage of EA Play today, those on Windows PC will have to wait until December 15 before they can dive into Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order or other EA titles. Once December 15 rolls around, those who have Xbox Game Pass for PC or Game Pass Ultimate will be able to browse, download, and enjoy titles from EA Play through the EA Desktop app that’s currently in beta.
Take your favorite EA games on-the-go with Xbox Cloud Gaming
Originally called xCloud, Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming is also including select EA titles to enjoy on your Android device when you’re away from home. While EA Play has a plethora of games to choose from, Cloud Gaming will be limited to the following titles:
Xbox Cloud Gaming EA titles:
- Dragon Age: Inquisition
- Madden NFL 20
- Mass Effect: Adnromeda
- Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
- Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2
- The Sims 4
- Unravel 2
This list will continue to grow, but is fairly limited at this point in time. It’s kinda awesome that Sims 4 is finally available, however, as that’s a game I’ve wanted to be able to play on-the-go for quite some time.
