The fact that EA Play will be included free of charge in the Xbox Game Pass subscription, was known for many months. While EA's games could have already been enjoyed by Xbox owners for some time, when it comes to PC gamers, the integration of the service was officially delayed for a few months last December. However, Microsoft has just confirmed that EA Play on PCs with Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions will officially launch on March 18, at 2:00 PM PT.
Game Pass owners on PC will gain access to over sixty PC versions of games from Electronic Arts, including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Need for Speed: Heat, FIFA 20 and Titanfall 2, as well as games included in many other popular series such as Battlefield, Command & Conquer and The Sims. This month's biggest attraction in EA Play is certainly the inclusion of Star Wars: Squadrons.
In order to download the games, we'll have to install a separate EA Desktop app, then create or log into a pre-registered Electronic Arts account and link our Xbox login to it. Let's add that EA Play is not only access to the library of full versions of the games from the catalog of the company. As part of the service, the players can also enjoy ten-hour trial versions of the latest titles released by EA, exclusive challenges and prizes, as well as discounts on digital purchases through the developer's app.
Xbox Game Pass is available to both Xbox and PC users. In addition, thanks to the xCloud streaming service, which is part of the subscription in the Ultimate version, also owners of Android mobile devices can use the cloud to play about 150 titles available as part of Microsoft's subscription. As a reminder, we only need to pay $1 for the first month of Game Pass subscription (later it's $9.99 for Xbox Game Pass on PC or $14.99 for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on PC and consoles).
