You can secretly play over 20 unlisted games on Xbox Game Pass for PC


Xbox Game Pass for PC is a pretty, goofy beast. It still manages to impress me with its ever-growing range of games, while confusing me with its obscure user experience.

Take the EA Play integration, for example, which gives you access to dozens of games from EA’s subscription service. Not only can you not search for specific EA games in Xbox Game Pass for PC, but I recently found out that there are actually over 20 EA Play games not listed in the Xbox app you can play with an Xbox Game Pass PC subscription.

To play any of these games, you need to sign in to the EA Play or Origin app, then just type the name of the game in the search box and download it (make sure your EA and Xbox accounts are related).

It’s a very good group too! The headliner has to be Crysis Remastered, released last year, but among them you’ll also find Worms WMD (in my eyes the silliest and most complete Worms game of all) as well as the biggest Battlefield game. , Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (complete with expansion to Vietnam).

There’s also a solid selection of indie titles including Superhot, Trine 2, The Sexy Brutale, and even something for video game historians in the form of Ultima Underworld 1 and 2.

After browsing the EA Play catalog, here are all of the EA Play games not listed in the Xbox app that Game Pass subscribers can play:

  • Aragami
  • Bard’s Tale Trilogy
  • Battlefield Bad Company 2
  • spectator
  • capsized
  • Crysis remastered
  • diluvion
  • Dungeons of Dredmor
  • epistory
  • Legrand Legacy
  • Mini-metro
  • The brutal sexy
  • Peggle Nights
  • Rebel galaxy
  • Very hot
  • This war of mine
  • Flashlight
  • Flashlight 2
  • Trigone
  • Trine 2: full story
  • Ultima Underworld 1
  • Ultima Underworld 2
  • ADM from worms

This list can go on leisurely as well, so be sure to check in the EA Play app and then set the filter to only show EA Play subscription games to see if any new surprises appear.

Looking at this list, it’s tempting to humorously conclude that “Xbox Game Pass for PC is just the gift that keeps on giving” and to wish everyone a Happy Cyber ​​Monday, but it’s yet another indicator of the strange and difficult experience. The Xbox app looks like one of those arcade claw machines full of really good giveaways that you have to force, kick, or try a few times before you get your prize. Or in this case, a clunky claw machine that drops your prize in another clumsy claw machine (EA Play) through which you can possibly get your goodies.

I want to love you Xbox Game Pass, but sometimes you make it so difficult …
