Bethesda have announced that, as of today, twenty of their “iconic” titles are available on Xbox Game Pass.
The announcement was made at Bethesda’s Round Table stream, which also explored the consequences of Microsoft’s recent purchase of the company. The vast majority of the titles can be played on Xbox, PC or Cloud meaning that, if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass, you can get your hands on these games right now. The twenty titles are:
Dishonored Definitive Edition, Dishonored 2, Doom (1993), Doom 2 (1995), Doom 3, Doom 64, Doom Eternal, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls Online, The Evil Within, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Fallout: New Vegas, Prey, Rage 2, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
We can honestly say there’s not a duff title amongst that lot, so it’s good news for Game Pass subscribers. But we do feel Bethesda and Xbox have been a little cheeky with their announcement. The way they’ve phrased their announcement, you could be forgiven for thinking that these are twenty never-seen-before titles.
In fact, only eight of these titles are totally new to the service:
- Dishonored Definitive Edition
- Doom (1993)
- Doom 2 (1995)
- Doom 3
- Doom 64
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
- The Evil Within
- Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
Of the remaining twelve, seven were already on Game Pass and five had been added then removed in 2020. Doom 2016 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are also curiously absent, as is Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.
Still, if you’ve never dived into the Fallout, Dishonored or The Elder Scrolls universes, it’s a good time to make a start. Now, Bethesda, about Fallout: New Vegas II..
