Xbox Game Pass Subscribers Can Now Preload EA Play Games
Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to access EA Play titles when it releases for the service on November 10, the same day as the Xbox Series X launch.
Not too long ago, Xbox and EA announced a partnership that would bring EA Play games to Xbox Game Pass subscribers. It was a pretty cool deal that didn’t cost current subscribers a penny more. The move only strengthened the argument that Xbox Game Pass was the best deal in gaming. With that said, subscribers can now preload EA play titles before the launch next week.
Tom Warren from The Verge tweeted out that Game Pass subscribers can start to load up on titles before the launch next week. You will be able to download the games, but they will not be unlocked until November 10th, the release date of the Xbox Series X|S.

We all know that the Series X|S is missing that one flagship exclusive title to really sell new hardware. It was supposed to be Halo Infinite, but that was rightfully indefinitely delayed. However, Xbox has done a fantastic job of making its console the go-to for those who want a wide variety of games to choose from at the start. Xbox Game Pass already has a fantastic lineup of both third-party and first-party titles, but now that EA Play is thrown in the mix, becoming a Game Pass subscriber is a no brainer.
Let’s be fair here though. The PS5 has some exclusive titles that will most likely push the console past the Series X in sales. But Xbox has already stated that Sony isn’t its main competitor now. As long people are buying into the Xbox ecosystem in some way, whether that’s buying a console, subscribing to Game Pass on PC, or even streaming through xCloud, Microsoft will be happy.
