Microsoft revealed that twenty Bethesda games will be added to Xbox Game Pass on March 12th. Microsoft has completed its purchase of ZeniMax Media, granting it control of many major video game franchises.
Xbox Game Pass customers will be the greatest beneficiaries of Microsoft’s takeover of ZeniMax Media, as the game streaming service has already promised that all upcoming Bethesda and id Software games will be available on day one. This also suggests that these brands’ vast back catalogs could be added to the program in the future, further sweetening what is now one of the finest gaming offers ever made.
During a Bethesda roundtable, Microsoft revealed that twenty games would be added to Xbox Game Pass on March 12th. Dishonored: Definitive Edition, Dishonored 2, DOOM, DOOM 2, DOOM 3, DOOM 64, DOOM Eternal, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Prey, Rage 2, Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Elder Scrolls Online, The Evil Inside, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood are among the games listed on the official Xbox website.
Some of these games are only on Xbox Game Pass, but Microsoft has announced that 16 of them will be released on all three Xbox Game Pass platforms (Console, PC, and Android). The Elder Scrolls Online isn’t available on PC, and Fallout: New Vegas is only available on consoles.
Morrowind and Oblivion aren’t available as streaming titles, and The Elder Scrolls Online isn’t available on PC. The rest of the titles are available to download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and handheld devices.
Xbox Game Pass recently added some of the best shooters and role-playing games ever made to its lineup, and nobody can deny the service’s value. There are a few noteworthy omissions, such as Doom (2016), but those are likely to arrive in due time, particularly because it has previously been available on Game Pass.
The ZeniMax and Bethesda deal cost Microsoft billions of dollars, with the intention of attracting a large number of users to Xbox Game Pass and the Xbox Series X/S. With so many amazing games coming to the service, this offer might be the thing that lets the Series X/S win an edge over the PS5 in this ongoing console battle.
