All EA Play Games Now Available on Xbox Game Pass for PC

Microsoft's gaming subscription, Xbox Game Pass, is a service that just keeps on giving. The prospect of getting access to hundreds of titles, both Indie and AAA, seems too valuable to pass on. Microsoft's next-gen strategy seems to be another great step in making the subscription a lot more appealing to a far greater audience. The gaming giant has plans for putting many high-profile releases such as Outriders on the service at launch without any additional cost. The recent Microsoft acquisition of Bethesda/ZeniMax Media has given another boost to the service, with 20 highly-acclaimed games getting added to the service.

Another news that might have flown under many gamers' radars is the launch of EA Play's service to Xbox Game Pass PC. This had been heavily anticipated for quite some time, and after a short delay, the service is finally available to try out. This makes it an opportune time for a rundown through all games available via the service, which may help players make a more informed decision on the matter.

The collection here seems to be of immense value, and the diversity of titles on offer is astonishing. There's almost something available for every kind of gamer, along with a healthy dose of classics like Command and Conquer and Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, among many others. In addition to this, live-service titles like Anthem are also available which might not be perfect, but is an option nevertheless for players who would like to try it out. Xbox Game Pass is great for gaming funk, and these titles seem to be a great addition for players looking to try out new experiences.

2020 hasn't been the best for many, but certainly had a lot to offer to gamers. While there was a fair share of Covid-19 related delays to video games and disappointing launches, Sony and Microsoft finally ushered in the next generation of console gaming with the release of PS5 and Xbox Series X. Sony already had a stellar library of exclusives, and with Demon's Souls as the launch title and a promise of a steady flow of exclusives, seemed poised to dominate this generation.

On the other hand, Microsoft remains on a shopping spree for studios both small and big to join Xbox Game Studios. The heavily anticipated acquisition of Bethesda's parent company, ZeniMax Media, has finally been completed after passing reviews from the European Commission. Xbox added 20 popular Bethesda titles to its Game Pass service, meaning there may be a greater chance that fans may receive remastered versions of classic titles in the future.

A gaming giant like Bethesda has been making games for a long time, and some of its popular franchises have lasted several console generations. The two most prominent franchises that fall under this category are The Elder Scrolls and the Fallout series. The Elder Scrolls 1 released way back in 1994 and the first Fallout released in 1997. Although the two games haven't made the cut for Xbox Game Pass for now, its sequels The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind and Fallout: New Vegas have.

These titles, as well as the earlier Doom games haven't really aged well for the most part. The washed-out textures, low draw distances as well as some obtuse mechanics make it really hard for modern or younger gamers to get into. The fantastical worlds and the characters that inhabit them are so enticing, that gamers who miss these titles would be doing themselves a disservice. Thus, many of such games definitely warrant a remaster.
