We covered the announcement last week about EA Play adding some of the Codemasters games to the service “soon,” per a few tweets and replies from the EA Play Twitter account.
Thankfully, “soon” means “now,” as of Tuesday. It lines up with what the Xbox Game Pass website originally posted.
EA Play subscribers on select Xbox consoles or PlayStation consoles can now welcome select Codemasters racing titles into their homes today as they are now on “The Play List.”
Those games include:
- DIRT 5
- DiRT 4
- DiRT Rally
- Dirt Rally 2.0
- F1 2020
- GRID (2019)
If you are a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber on Xbox console, you also have access to these titles, but only on console. DIRT 5 was already on that service prior to this announcement.
As I mentioned in my last round up of this information, it gets quite tricky to understand which EA Play subscribers have access and which ones don’t. It gets even tougher to decipher on Xbox when talking about different subscription tiers of Game Pass.
For simplicity’s sake, here’s who CAN get these games:
- EA Play subscribers on PS4
- EA Play subscribers on PS5
- EA Play subscribers on Xbox One
- EA Play subscribers on Xbox Series X|S
- Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on Xbox One
- Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on Xbox Series X|S
Here’s who CANNOT get these games:
- EA Play subscribers on PC
- Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on PC
- Game Pass (standard) subscribers on PC
- Game Pass (standard) subscribers on Xbox One
- Game Pass (standard) subscribers on Xbox Series X|S
There’s also an EA Play Plus subscription for Origin and EA Desktop users, but as far as we understand, these titles are console only anyway, so despite the higher plan, you’re still out of luck. Better luck next time, PC racers.
Memberships for EA Play alone cost $4.99 for a month or $29.99 for a year. If you have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, EA Play is included in that subscription. Happy racing, EA Players!
