Can we make informed guesses as to which games will be leaving soon?

E.g. I've got my eye on Resi 7 and Doom Eternal when my Xbox arrives this week as I suspect they may be soon to be dropped? I know v little about the service so might be off here.

Doom won't be it's only just been added to Gamepass, plus with the purchase of Zenimax it probably won't be removed at all.

Usually stuff lasts for 12 months so just see what was added a year ago. There are exceptions of course, but that's a good place to start.

The Zenimax deal hasn't actually gone through yet so whilst I expect their games to be permanent fixtures when the deal completes its not impossible for stuff like Doom to go off the service in the meantime

Oh wow cool I hadn't realised they stay up for that long. Think i saw that RDR2 was up for a super short time so had thought that might be the norm for 3rd party titles.

EA Play Coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC on December 15

This one isn’t a single game but a whole Play List of them for you PC players – coming December 15, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC members will be able to download and play games from the EA Play library on Windows 10 PCs via the EA Desktop app currently in beta! If you’ve ever wanted to be a Jedi, ride around in a Titan, or join the Inquisition, now’s your time to shine (ok that was a pretty bad Bejeweled joke, even for me).

“We want players to access the games and in-game benefits they want, in the easiest way possible,” said Autumn Brown Sr. Director, Content Strategy and Partnerships, Electronic Arts. “This partnership with Xbox makes an impressive library of great Xbox and EA content more readily accessible. Our goal is to give players more choice to get more of what they love, and this is a way to do that.“

We’re all excited about EA Play coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC at no additional cost. It’s another huge library of games for you to play, so my apologies for all the time you’re going to spend updating your ordered play list (for those of you who are far more organized in your play time than me!).

EA Play Available on Xbox consoles with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Tomorrow

Starting November 10, EA Play will be available on Xbox consoles as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at no additional cost! EA Play is bringing more than 60 of EA’s biggest and best games like FIFA 20, Titanfall 2 and Need for Speed Heat, as well as some of EA’s most popular franchises like Battlefield, Mass Effect, Skate, and The Sims.

Select EA Play Games Available on Android via Cloud Gaming

We’re also adding these games to the growing list of titles available on Android via cloud gaming – they’ll be available beginning November 10:

Coming Soon

Gears Tactics (Android & Console) – November 9
Gears Tactics is the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game from one of the most-acclaimed video game franchises – Gears of War. Outnumbered and fighting for survival, recruit and command your squad to hunt down an evil mastermind who makes monsters.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light (Android & Console) – November 10
A new power is born out of the ancient Pyramid ship above Europa’s frozen frontier, and a dark empire has risen beneath, united under the banner of the Fallen Kell of Darkness, Eramis. Join your fellow Guardians and bring down the empire at any cost – even if it means wielding the Darkness itself.

Planet Coaster: Console Edition (Android & Console) – November 10
Welcome to a new era in coaster park simulation! Bring your ideas to life with easy-to-use tools, manage all aspects of your expanding empire, and harness the world’s best creations from an endlessly creative community in the Frontier Workshop. Guests react in real-time as you set prices, place scenery, and install exciting new attractions. Keep them entertained so attendance figures – and profits – skyrocket.

Tetris Effect: Connected (Console & PC) – November 10
Tetris Effect: Connected is the original game with all-new co-op and competitive online and local multiplayer modes! This is Tetris like you’ve never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before—an incredibly addictive, unique, and breathtakingly gorgeous reinvention of one of the most popular puzzle games of all time.

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered (Console & PC) – November 12
It is a time of war. The Republic of Galbadia, under the influence of the sorceress Edea, mobilizes its great armies against the other nations of the world. Squall and other members of SeeD, an elite mercenary force, join hands with Rinoa, a resistance fighter, to fight against Galbadia’s tyrannical rule and to prevent Edea from fulfilling her ultimate goal.

Gonner2 (Android) ID@Xbox – November 12
Joining the cloud gaming (beta) library on Android with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and available now on console & PC. The altruistic and unexpected hero Ikk is back and this time Death needs his help. Journey your way through deep dark chaotic places with unimaginable sparks of color as you go on a mission to help Death rid a mysterious presence from her lair. Battle crazy bosses, lose your head (a lot), in this messy, cute, fast-paced procedurally-generated platformer. In addition to the single-player journey to help Death, play the party co-op mode so you and your friends can lose your heads together!

Streets of Rogue (PC) ID@Xbox – November 12
Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. The game takes inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites and adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of immersive sims and RPGs. Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life, who are just trying to get by in their daily activities.

Ark: Survival Evolved: Explorer’s Edition (Android, Console & PC) ID@Xbox – November 17
Combining the base game (already available with Xbox Game Pass) with 3 massive Expansion Packs, Ark: Survival Evolved Explorer’s Edition is an ultimate way to get even more dinosaur action! The Explorer’s Edition gives you access to the mega hit Ark: Survival Evolved as well as the Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Extinction expansion packs, adding nearly 900 hours of gameplay! Each DLC is available for individual download as well.

Halo MCC: Halo 4 (PC) – November 17
Halo 4 joins The Master Chief Collection as the sixth and final chapter of the epic saga. Now optimized for PC, witness the Master Chief’s triumphant return to battle an ancient evil bent on vengeance and annihilation. Shipwrecked on a mysterious world, faced with new enemies and deadly technology, the universe will never be the same.

River City Girls (Android, Console & PC) ID@Xbox – November 19
In this all-new entry in the legendary beat-’em-up series, hot-blooded heroes Kunio and Riki have been captured, leaving it to their hard-hitting girlfriends, Kyoko and Misako, to serve up some payback. As you punch and kick your way across town – either solo or with a friend in local co-op – you’ll gain new skills, chow down on power-ups, wield an assortment of weapons, and unleash an arsenal of combos, throws, and special attacks that will leave the bad guys crying for mama – all in outrageous 16-bit style! The awesome action is punctuated by manga story panels, anime cutscenes, and an epic synth-pop soundtrack. It’s an old-school rumble for a new generation!

Star Renegades (Android & Console) ID@Xbox – November 19
Star Renegades is a strategy RPG about outsmarting AI-driven adversaries, forging friendships, and toppling galactic empires spanning over multiple generations. Fusing a reactive, tactical turn-based battle system that emphasizes interrupts and counters, with a procedurally generated and emergent mission-based campaign and an intelligent Adversary system with enemy officers that evolve and move up in the ranks, every playthrough is unique, challenging, and never the same.

Leaving November 16

Darksiders III (Console & PC)
Munchkin (Console & PC)
The Talos Principle (Console & PC)
Tracks: The Train Set Game (Console & PC)

No idea if it was already known Planet Coaster was coming to Game Pass, but it's a great addition to the service.

Bit weird to see Gears Tactics added to the Recently Added section on PC Game Pass, as if it hasn't been there for months.

So no Fallen Order tomorrow? Or is that already in the rotation? It was going to be my first game on Series X (if it arrives?). Tetris Effect is not a bad fallback though (though I have it on PS4/PSVR). Maybe Gears Tactics....

Anyone up for some co op Tetris Effect tomorrow?

It's on EA Play tomorrow so it'll be there for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on Xbox, as well as the rest of the EA Play library. Some EA Play games are going to be streaming on Android via xCloud too, though not Fallen Order.

Nice to finally have EA play! Feels like it has been ages since it was announced. Downloading Star Wars Battlefront II and Burnout Paradise first
