Will the newest EA Sports soccer sim come to Xbox Game Pass?

EA and Xbox have a now-long standing partnership to include EA Play on Xbox Game Pass. This allows users with Xbox Game Pass to access a whole host of EA features through EA Play.

EA Play Pro is the premium version of EA Play that costs $10 more per month to get access to. This version is not included in Xbox Game Pass but will get you access to for the full Early Access and then the full game on September 29, 2023.

Will EA FC be on Xbox Game Pass?

Xbox Game Pass will allow you to play EA FC 24, but only for 10 hours. EA gives 10-hour trials of all of their premium releases to EA Play members. Game Pass including EA Play means that this will transfer over.

EA FC will also eventually come into EA Play too, but it won't be for a long time yet. When EA FC 24 comes to EA Play in mid 2024, it will then be available on Xbox Game Pass.

That will likely happen some time in the middle of 2024, with May-June being the most likely release window for the game on Game Pass. This means that players will have a long wait for the game if they are just wanting to play it through Xbox Game Pass.
