Star Wars: Squadrons – available on EA Play from tomorrow (pic: EA)
The latest addition to Xbox Game Pass is Star Wars Squadrons, but it’ll be available via EA Play on both PC and console.
EA Play will be available via Xbox Games Pass for PC on Thursday, March 18. EA Play was added to the console version of Game Pass back in November but was delayed on PC for unspecified reasons.
PC owners can subscribe to Game Pass either through the specific PC version or the all-in-one Ultimate pass, which either way results in even better value for money than it already did.
It adds to a list of titles that includes Star Wars Jedi: Fall Order, Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, Battlefield 5, FIFA 20, The Sims 4, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, and Titanfall 2.
As is standard for EA Play you also get early access to most new games, which usually works by allowing you to play around 10 hours of a new title for free – like an extended demo.
To access the games, you need to sign in through the Windows 10 Xbox app and pick a game to install, which will instead install the EA desktop app. You then have to go back to the Xbox app to install the game, which will involve logging in with your EA Account.
That account will have to be linked with your Xbox account too, so make sure you do that first. It’s a bit of a faff but you should only have to do all that once, plus the video below explains how.
