Bethesda Joins The Xbox Family

Want another good reason why Xbox is the best place to play video games in this generation? How about 20? 

With this week’s news of Microsoft’s official acquisition of ZeniMax Media and Bethesda Studios for the grand total of $7.5 billion, many wondered what this meant for Bethesda’s relationship as an exclusive developer for Xbox.

We don’t know much as of now if this means future Elder Scrolls games are on the way, and whether the highly anticipated sci-fi RPG Starfield will be Xbox exclusive, but what we do know now is that for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, you’re getting access to 20 Bethesda games to play as of March 12th, according to Xbox News. 

Here’s the list:

  • Dishonored Definitive Edition (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Dishonored 2 (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Doom (1993) (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Doom 2 (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)

Many of these games will get an FPS boost for Xbox Series X/S owners, however they have yet to share which games will be benefited from this feature. Microsoft will have more to share on this soon. 

If you’re not an Xbox Game Pass Subscriber, it’s only $10 a month to get access to 100s of games across multiple platforms, or $15 for both Game Pass and Xbox Gold.
