Recap: Xbox Game Pass in March

Let’s quickly recap how dramatic March was when it comes to Xbox Game Pass, with the likes of Bethesda finally tying the knot and joining Microsoft, 20 Bethesda games were immediately made available for Game Pass users.

Not only that, but Xbox Game Pass for PC also saw a boost, with EA Play now a free addition for PC users. To make things clear, you don’t need an Ultimate membership to play EA Play games on PC, just Game Pass for PC which costs $7.99/month. This brought the inclusion of some awesome titles, on both console and PC, such as Star Wars Squadrons. We also saw great games like Octopath Traveler, Narita Boy, and Yakuza 6 join the service.
