EA Play is Coming to Game Pass on November 10

Microsoft announced today that EA Play’s entire game library is coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on November 10.

“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,” Microsoft’s Sarah Bond announced. “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.”

As you may recall, Microsoft first revealed that EA Play was coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate earlier this month as part of its Xbox Series S reveal. Since then, Microsoft has also announced its blockbuster acquisition of Bethesda, further burnishing its in-house stable of game studios and providing yet another competitive advantage for Xbox.

“We have been waiting for this moment for a long time and now it’s finally here,” Bond continues. “We are entering the next generation of gaming – and it looks and feels unlike any before it. With cross-play connecting people across platforms, Xbox Game Pass continually bringing new experiences to discover, and cloud gaming making it possible to play anywhere, there have never been more ways to play with Xbox.”

    <p>So I guess there is no reason not to cancel my EA Play subscription once it hits gamepass?</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#580511">In reply to remc86007:</a></em></blockquote><p>There is barely any reason not to cancel it BEFORE it hits GamePass. :P</p><p><br></p><p>But seriously, this makes the decision on whether or not to buy Squadrons a lot easier. And probably the decision to buy that one game EA eventually puts out in 2021 as well.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#580511">In reply to remc86007:</a></em></blockquote><p>It will cancel automatically and if you have any months left on your sub it will be converted to Gamepass Ultimate (I forget the exact ratio)</p>

    <p>So, will the games show up as "Game Pass" games on the console, or will we still need to go to the separate EA Play section? Also does this come with the 10%EA Play discount?</p>
