One of the best games of yesteryear was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which combined a surprisingly wonderful adventure with satisfying combat and Force powers into one of the best Star Wars games of all time. If you haven't experienced Jedi: Fallen Order yet, it's definitely a game worth leaping into feet first, and it's about to get a whole lot easier to do. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is officially coming to EA Play, meaning any subscribers will be able to have full access to the game as part of the monthly cost.

This is especially exciting for Xbox players, as EA Play is joining forces with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, meaning anyone subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is already the best value in all of gaming by including Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) into one low monthly cost, will also have full access to every title available through EA Play. Pretty soon, this also includes Jedi: Fallen Order.
The stakes get even higher when you realize the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are right around the corner, and will feature powerful new hardware and incredibly fast SSD's, which massively improve performance in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from our tests.
So when does this all go down? Well, it all happens on the same day. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order joins EA Play, EA Play joins Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and the Xbox Series X|S release to the world all on November 10, 2020, which is less than a week away. If you haven't tried Jedi: Fallen Order yet, this is the time to do it.

Is the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate the best value in all of gaming? It's possible. Ultimate bundles your Xbox Live Gold subscription, an Xbox Game Pass subscription for both Xbox consoles and Windows PC's, and Xbox Cloud Gaming for on-the-go. That means access to hundreds of games, with more added all the time, for a single monthly subscription cost.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the best thing ever. Value is insane for the low cost
This is a great addition for both services. It was a great game.
Damn...I just recently bought it, granted at a good discounted price...lol
Wait. Wasn't EA Play coming to regular, non-ultimate Game Pass PC?????????? Did this change? Either the article doesn't have the facts right or they did a switch there. I'm leaning to the article not being accurate.
If the game comes only for Ultimate but EA Play does come for PC, that would be very strange because it would mean it's another tier to EA Play. Articles should inform us, not keep wondering whether this is the right info and wanting to research ourselves.
Ultimate in November, pc in December
Me: [Screams internally]
The article is accurate while incomplete when it comes to your interrogation... But on Nov 10 ea play comes to ultimate and ultimate only.. Then in December it does come to PC pass... Nothing wro'g with the article it's just a different topic which could have been mentioned for clarity but wasn't necessary in the current topic November 10
Anyone has it showing up? it's not yet available on my side...
