Planned for release late last year but delayed until now, EA Play comes to Xbox Game Pass for PC tomorrow at no additional cost to subscribers, complete with the newly-added Star Wars: Squadrons.


The cycle that started with an announcement last September is finally complete. Starting tomorrow, EA Play for PC becomes part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC, giving subscribers free access to more than 60 EA games, including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, FIFA 20, Titanfall 2, and Need for Speed Heat. They’ll also get trials of new games, discounts on purchases, and other special member-only content.

Need a video showing you how to get it set up? No? Microsoft made one anyway. In it, Xbox Game Pass community lead Megan Spurr shows off her lovely brick walls and window cat. Also, she talks about downloading and installing the EA desktop app, which is not as exciting as the cat.

Man, I cannot stop staring at that brick. I’d probably go for darker curtains, either a navy or even a gray. Anyway, EA Play.

Hilarious that they need an instructional video on how to use it.

The Xbox/Game Pass PC app is decent, but for some infuriating reason it manages game installs through the Windows Store. Want to install a patch? Gotta go through the Store app, not the Xbox app.

Most of the time it’s not really an issue, but it’s a pain for the MCC, where each game is it’s own install/update in the Store, but it’s all housed under one “Halo” app, so it’s a pain to get Windows to realize it needs to download an update when you want to install a new game
