Microsoft has announced EA Play will be available for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers starting on November 10 on Xbox consoles, including Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. It will be available on PC via Xbox Game Pass starting in December. 

"Earlier this month we announced that we’ve teamed up with Electronic Arts to provide Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC members an EA Play membership at no additional cost," said Microsoft.

"Today I’m announcing that starting November 10, EA Play will be available on Xbox consoles, including Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and beginning in December, members with an Ultimate or PC subscription will be able to download and play games from the EA Play library on Windows 10 PCs.

"That means we will have a whole new collection of games coming your way on console and PC, and that some of the best EA Play games will also be available for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to play on Android devices via the cloud."

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will launch worldwide on November 10.

It's a steal. EA Play and all Xbox's first-party games games including the ZeniMax ones are there day one on Game Pass for $15. Bonus for those like me who also enjoy the indie games they put in the service. I'd buy a Series S just for that but I'll probably wait till XCloud becomes available to my region.

This is huge for Gamepass. It will instantly add a bunch of notable shooters, RPGs, racers, sports, etc. These are 3rd party games that will stay as well, not potentially leave in a few months.

Now please put Jedi: Fell Order on EA Play before then. It has been out nearly a year now and still isn't on EA PLay, most EA games are added to Play within 6-9 months of release.

This is a huge grab for Microsoft and it got lost in the shuffle of all the other news.

In the long run, they're either gonna have to get Gamepass to 50mm subscribers, or raise the price. I hope they're able to do it with subscriber numbers.
