If my series X shows up on launch day, I know what I am playing while I wait for Age of Calamity!

Nice, I wanted it the same day they announced they purchased Zenimax. But Octobber 1st still great. I guess they will slowly add their new library. Fallout 76 and Elderscrolls Online will be great additions for a service like Gamepass.

Seems like they should have had some big Bethesda game hit Gamepass that day.....

Actually, I just noticed Fallout 76, Elder Scrolls Online, Rage 2 and other Zenimax games are on the service. Well now we know those games should be staying on the service.
