Following Microsoft’s acquisition of Zenimax Media (and subsequently, Bethesda,) the company announced a slew of Bethesda games would be added to the Xbox Game Pass in celebration. Well, it didn’t take long for Xbox gamers to feel some Bethesda effects. As is tradition, Xbox unveils a new batch of games each month which will be added to the Xbox Game Pass library, and this month comes with a long list of Bethesda bangers.
In the near future, a select few games will include the FPS Boost feature, although no news has been announced about which games will receive the enhancement.
Beginning March 12, 20 Bethesda games will be made available to loyal Game Pass subscribers. Here are the titles members can begin diving into.
Note: If a game includes, “Cloud,” it means players will have the capability of using the xCloud service to keep hammering through their journey on mobile devices.
- 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
- Doom 64 – Console, PC, Cloud
- Doom Eternal – Console, PC, Cloud
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind – Cloud, PC
- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion – Console, PC
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim Special Edition – Console, PC, Cloud
- The Elder Scrolls Online – Cloud, Console
- The Evil Within – Console, PC, Cloud
- Fallout 4 – Console, PC, Cloud
- Fallout 76 – Console, PC, Cloud
- Fallout: New Vegas – Console
- Prey – 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
Needless to say, the list has a heavy infusion of nostalgia. Games like Elder Scrolls and Fallout have continued to be popular adventures that never see a dropoff in play while a game like The Evil Within is a fantastic example of living nightmares which quenches the thirst for horror escapades. Each game holds its own wonderful memories that we can’t wait to tap back into.
For newcomers to Xbox Game Pass, this month’s additions make it easy to add more funds to your account. Personally, my bank account is going to see a few transactions courtesy of the most recent library stock—Fallout 4 is calling my name.
If you’ve yet to sign up and take advantage of all the wonders of Xbox Game Pass, here is what you can expect. The membership comes in two options: Xbox Game Pass is $9.99 and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will cost you $14.99. (I find the Ultimate package well worth it since it comes with Xbox Live Gold.) Regardless of your choice, each option gives you the chance to play over 100 titles with no additional costs. This also includes any day-one launch of first-party titles.
So, if you’re feeling a little “meh” about your current lineup of games, signing up for Xbox Game Pass is a worthy investment, as the smorgasbord of games is always being replenished. 10/10, would highly recommend.
