In an announcement that created ripples in the gaming industry, Xbox has declared its collaboration with Electronic Arts to offer a free EA Play membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC members. The timing is perfect and slated to start from this holiday.
When Xbox created the Xbox Game Pass, the gaming world went into a tizzy. It was an opportunity to experience fantastic games and discover a wholly enhanced gaming environment. Over the last three years, Xbox has expanded on their initial foray into gaming and have now added exciting games. They currently have over 10 million members who can access the games on a wide range of devices, including Windows 10, Xbox Game Pass for PC users, and Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and S.
Since its inception, Xbox has updated its platform continually with new games and novel features. In 2019, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Game Pass for PC was introduced. In August of 2020, it was announced that starting September 15, Ultimate members will have access to more than a hundred games on their Android phones or tablet to be downloaded from the cloud.
