  • Bethesda has joined Xbox.
  • 20 Bethesda games are now joining Xbox Game Pass.
  • Some games can be played through Cloud Gaming and some will benefit from FPS Boost.

Bethesda has joined Xbox and as the different teams start to collaborate, more and more games are going to launch into Xbox Game Pass. The existing Bethesda Softworks library is also being leveraged, as 20 Bethesda games are joining Xbox Game Pass. It's worth noting that some of these games were already available in Xbox Game Pass but now have expanded options, such as being supported on Xbox Game Pass for PC or Cloud. Here's the full list of games being added:

  • 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 (Console, PC)
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Console, PC)
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 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)

Some of these games will benefit from Xbox FPS Boost for anyone playing on Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.

We've previously argued there are several Xbox games that need FPS Boost, so it'll be interesting to see what titles get boosted.

Moving ahead, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has indicated that outside of contractual obligations, Bethesda games will be exclusive to plaforms with Xbox Game Pass.

  • Fallout 76 is probably what bankrupted this publisher... hopefully MS won't make the same mistake. As for Elder Scrolls Online - do xbox users still have to buy the additional campaigns or is it all included now?
  • Uh, where did you hear Zenimax was bankrupt?
    First, MS wouldn't have paid $7.5B to *keep* existing management if it were.
    Second, Fallout 76 was a mess at launch but over the past two years they've addressed most of the issues and unlike other online games (ANTHEM among others) it is still getting add-ons and they recently announced what is coming in the next few months. It may not be FORTNITE but it looks to be doing fine, growing, and developing its own personality and community.
    Third, Zenimax selling to MS looks to have had more about the fate of the founder and the investors looking to cash in at a time of consolidation.
  • Where are Doom 2016 and Fallout 3?
  • I was wondering the same thing
  • Also, The Evil Within 2 and Death of the Outsider
  • Maybe they are doing a next gen remaster in the future, it wouldn't be the first time.
  • I thought about that especially for FO3. It would be amazing in 4k 60
  • Already on gp.
  • Nope, they are not
  • Same question. No reason not to be there right now.
  • Some of those games are already in xbox GamePass
  • But not on PC. All of these older Bethesda games will run flawlessly on my laptop. Too bad I already purchased Fallout 4 for PC on Steam.
  • Actually, I'd love to see the older ELDER SCROLLS games show up on PC and CLOUD, especially the latter to get them on console.
    I started with MORROWIND and I'm curious about them.
  • With all Dlc ?.
  • No, just base game, same as any other Game Pass title.
