Back when it was first announced that Microsoft was planning to purchase ZeniMax Media, the console manufacturer celebrated by adding a number of Bethesda games to its Xbox Game Pass service. Now that the acquisition has been completed, it has been announced that more titles are set to arrive later this week.
Making the announcement on Twitter, Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg welcomed Bethesda to the family, saying “We now have one of the largest, most creative, and quality first party studio line-ups ever. Great day to be an @Xbox fan. To celebrate, we’re bringing more @bethesda games into Game Pass later this week. Stay tuned!”
Currently, the full list of Bethesda games available on Game Pass includes: DOOM Eternal; Fallout 76; Fallout: New Vegas; Skyrim; Dishonored 2; The Elder Scrolls Online; and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Of the games which are backwards compatible, the full list of titles yet to land on Game Pass includes: The Evil Within; The Evil Within 2; DOOM (2016); DOOM 3 BFG Edition; Prey; Fallout 3; Fallout 4; Wolfenstein The New Order; Wolfenstein The New Colossus; Wolfenstein: The Old Blood; Dishonored Definitive Edition; Dishonored: Death of the Outsider; Oblivion; Morrowind; and RAGE.
With so many games yet to make their way onto Game Pass, it will be interesting to see which titles Xbox plans to add this week, and what the rollout procedure will look like for the rest of the back catalogue of games. Furthermore, it will also be interesting to see which of these titles – if any – get updated with Xbox Series X|S enhancements. Regardless, there is no denying that Xbox Game Pass just got a lot more valuable.
