Electronic Art's EA Play is receiving a popular game next week, with Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order joining the subscription programs almost a year after its original release.
EA Play, formerly known as EA Access and Origin Access, is EA's multiplatform game subscription service that's currently available across Origin, Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The new arrival is heading towards EA Play subscribers across all these platforms, and more, on November 10.
Notably, this is good news for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate holders, as this is the same day that the EA Play service gets added into the Ultimate platform as a bonus on the Xbox One family and the next-gen Xbox Series X|S - which are also releasing on November 10. Those without an Ultimate subscription on Xbox will still be able to subscribe to EA Play separately.
The Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription is set to gain EA Play at no extra charge as well, but this is slated to happen sometime in December.
For those who are in the dark about this Star Wars adventure, here's how Respawn Entertainment describes the title:
Take on the role of a Jedi Padawan who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66 following the events of STAR WARS™: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith™. On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities, and master the art of the iconic lightsaber – all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors.
EA Play is available for $4.99 per month across all aforementioned platforms, coming in with a large library of Electronic Arts-published titles, a 10% discount on games by the company, and in-game benefits. The PC version of the subscription on Origin, however, also adds on a selection of third-party games, and there's a $14.99 per month Pro version of the service that includes new games from the publisher.
Update: Edited to clarify that EA Play will still be available as a standalone service on Xbox consoles.
