Electronic Arts and Microsoft are teaming up to bring EA Play to Game Pass subscribers on PC. Starting on March 18, at 5 p.m. EDT, Game Pass subscribers on PC will have access to the full library of EA Play games for no additional charge, Microsoft announced on Wednesday.

EA Play’s PC library has more than 60 games, including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, FIFA 20, as well as games from the Madden and Battlefield series, and the new addition of Star Wars: Squadrons. EA Play also includes monthly rewards for certain EA games including Ultimate Team packs for FIFA, and a weapon charm for Apex Legends. Finally, EA Play members also get free 10 hour trials of certain games including FIFA 21.

To access this new content once it’s available on March 18, PC players will have to download the new EA Desktop app and log in with an EA Account — or create a new one. After that, players will be able to connect their Xbox account and gain access to EA Play.

EA Play will be available to both Xbox Game Pass PC subscribers and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Xbox Game Pass PC costs $9.99 a month and only provides access to the PC version of Game Pass, while Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $14.99 and gives players access to both the console and PC versions of the service.
