Xbox + Bethesda = 20 extra games on Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass just got an expansion and it’s quite a substantial one. Normally we should be happy with a subtle addition of 3, maybe even four games, but not this time. Nope, this time Xbox is happy to announce that twenty games have been added to the service, all thanks to the acquisition of Bethesda.

To make the news even better, I’m glad to inform you that we’re not dealing with some crappy, vintage shit that we all got to play in the Xbox 360 era (even though some are older than most of my puns). For instance, DOOM Eternal is on the list, which is a pretty recent gem of a game. Not all added games are worth mentioning – like Fallout 76 and Rage 2 – but hey, they’re free, so who’s complaining? Here’s the full list of games that you’re able to download as of now, granted that you’re subscribed to Game Pass.

  • Dishonored: Definitive Edition
  • Dishonored 2
  • DOOM
  • DOOM 2
  • DOOM 64
  • DOOM 3
  • DOOM Eternal
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Fallout 4
  • Fallout 76
  • Prey
  • Rage 2
  • The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind
  • The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion
  • The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • The Evil Within
  • Wolfenstein: The New Order
  • Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood

The addition of Skyrim and Fallout 4 aren’t really big surprises anymore. Putting a March 12 release date on the product page isn’t exactly the subtlest of hints, Microsoft. Plus, Fallout 76 was already in Game Pass for a couple of weeks. But still, it’s a fair list of charge-free games if you ask me, even though I’ve already played most of them on Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

That doesn’t mean that I won’t play them again, because the majority of the added game are also coming to Game Pass on PC. The only odd ones out are Fallout: New Vegas and The Elder Scrolls Online. New Vegas is only coming to console and TESO is joining Microsoft’s streaming service xCloud, apart from being added to Game Pass for console.

Speaking of xCloud, a fair chunk of the aforementioned list has been added to the streaming service. A few games are missing though. Since Fallout: New Vegas only made it to console, that one’s off the list. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion are also a nope. That’s still a solid 17 out of 20 games though. Could be worse.

Well, what have we got to say about this? We happy? Let me know in the comments below. Be a good sport and share which one of these games is the one you’re most excited about *cough* DOOM Eternal *cough*.
