Ever since it was announced last fall that EA Play and Xbox Game Pass were joining forces, PC gamers have been chomping at the bit to experience the exciting synergy that console owners have been enjoying since November. The wait is now over, as Xbox Game Pass PC and Ultimate members can now dive into everything EA Play has to offer on Windows 10.
Now there’s only one question, but it’s a big one: What to play first? The good news is that EA Play on Game Pass has plenty to entertain you. From classic releases to newer titles, and spanning a wide range of genres, here are some of the first games to try now that EA Play is part of Game Pass for PC.
Stars Wars games on EA Play could really fill their own list, as there's still Battlefront 2 to consider. But if we're picking highlights, there's one Jedi adventure you definitely won't want to miss. Fallen Order arrived just as fan demand for a new Star Wars action-adventure title had reached a crescendo, and it did not disappoint. Thrilling fans by dropping them into the boots of Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis, it brought Souls-like progression and combat, mixed with power-enhanced platforming. There’s nothing quite like feeling like you have the Force at your fingertips when it’s done right. Play it on the highest graphics settings your PC can support and prepare to be transported to a few parts of that galaxy far, far away you probably haven’t seen before.
