Microsoft has revealed that several games will be available on Xbox Game Pass in the wake of the Bethesda studios acquisition.

From 12 March, subscribers on the platform will get to choose from 20 different titles, including ones from the Fallout and Doom franchises.

Microsoft’s announcement also hinted that the studio was working on their big project. Further details will be shared later this year, according to the company.

What Bethesda games are now on Xbox Game Pass?

The Bethesda games available on Xbox Game Pass include:

  • Dishonored Definitive Edition
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood
  • Dishonored 2
  • Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
  • DOOM
  • Wolfenstein: The New Order
  • DOOM II
  • RAGE 2
  • DOOM 3
  • Prey
  • DOOM 64
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • DOOM Eternal
  • Fallout 76
  • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Fallout 4
  • The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim Special Edition
  • The Evil Within
  • The Elder Scrolls Online

The games will be available across multiple platforms including console, PC, and mobile devices.

Some games will also benefit from a Frame Per Second (FPS) Boost on Xbox Series X and S consoles. Microsoft will release further details on the feature at a later date.

The Bethesda library on Game Pass is the result of Microsoft’s acquisition of Zenimax Media, the parent company of Bethesda. Both the European Commission and US Securities and Exchange Commission approved the deal this week.

When the deal was announced back in 2020, Microsoft said that the studio’s current exclusivity deals would be honoured.

This means that games such as Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo will still launch exclusively on the PS5.

However, there’s still no official word yet on whether all future Bethesda games will be exclusive to Xbox platforms.
