Xbox Game Pass Ultimate customers will get access to EA Play just in time for the launch of Microsoft’s next-generation console. EA Play will arrive at Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on November 10, the same day Microsoft launches its Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. Only Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ($14.99 per month) subscribers will have access to EA Play, along with the xCloud benefits and Xbox Live Gold plan.
EA Play will include access to over 60 additional EA games, including The Sims, FIFA, Mass Effect, and many more. EA Play is similar to Game Pass but exclusive to EA games. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will also be able to download and play games from EA Play on Windows 10 PCs in December, increasing the collection of games available on the PC side of the Xbox Game Pass.
Microsoft also plans to add the classic Bethesda franchise soon to the Xbox Game Pass for consoles and PCs. The additions come after Microsoft acquired Bethesda Softworks' parent company, ZeniMax, for $ 7.5 billion. Doom Eternal will be one of the first additions on October 1, but Microsoft hasn't revealed the full list of Bethesda games that will make their way to Game Pass.

- Microsoft’s new Xbox app will let you stream Xbox One games to your iPhone
If you already subscribe to both EA Play and Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft is canceling EA Play subscriptions, and any remaining time over 50 days will be “rounded up and converted to the nearest month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a ratio of three to one.” There’s a full FAQ over at Microsoft’s Xbox support site, but essentially if you have up to 3 months of EA Play already on your account, you’ll get 1 month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate added to your account. Between 4 and 6 months of EA Play left on your account means 2 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate added to your account. Here’s the full table for conversions that Microsoft estimates will be added to accounts:
