The Xbox acquisition of ZeniMax (and subsequently, Bethesda) became official earlier this week and Xbox Game Pass members are already seeing the benefits. Each month, Xbox Game Pass continues to expand its library, and the latest batch of arrivals includes 20 Bethesda titles.
Xbox Game Pass adds 20 Bethesda games
Some of these games will also include the new FPS Boost in the future, but which titles will receive this buff are still unknown at this time.
Starting March 12, 20 Bethesda games will be available on Xbox Game Pass. For those who are interested, here’s what members can expect this month. For Cloud, that means gamers will be able to use the xCloud service to experience these adventures on the go with mobile devices.
What’s coming up:
- Dishonored Definitive Edition – Console, PC, Cloud
- Dishonored 2 – Console, PC, Cloud
- Doom 1993 – Console, PC, Cloud
- Doom II – Console, PC, Cloud
- Doom 3 – Console, PC, Cloud

- Rage 2 – Console, PC, Cloud
- Wolfenstein: The New Order – Console, PC, Cloud
- Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Console, PC, Cloud
- Wolfenstein: Youngblood – Console, PC, Cloud
Personally, I’m really excited to see Fallout: New Vegas on Xbox Game Pass, especially with Bethesda and Obsidian now under one roof. With The Outer Worlds and its latest DLC will be released next week, New Vegas nostalgia is high and it’s a great reason to revisit an old favorite and for newcomers who were on the fence to put in some cash to see how Obsidian took the wasteland.
For those who might not have Xbox Game Pass, here’s what you need to know. With this subscription, you have two options to choose from with Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Both offer Xbox fans the ability to play over 100 titles at no additional cost, including day one launches of proprietary titles.
Xbox Game Pass costs $ 9.99 per month, while Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $ 14.99 and includes Xbox Live Gold. This is a pretty good deal, especially for those who are a bit more selective when it comes to which stocks are worth seriously investing in.
