FIFA 22 & Battlefield 2042 listed for Xbox Game Pass – likely coming this week

The Xbox store lists both FIFA 22 and Battlefield 2042 as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, but no one can download them yet.

With Battlefield 2042 suffering from a dwindling player-base, EA is no doubt eager to get people back into it. From the look of things, its newest strategy is to add it to EA Play and, thus, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

That way, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be able to play it for free, which is definitely a more enticing prospect than paying the full £59.99. It’s not the only game either, as apparently FIFA 22 will also be joining it.

News of FIFA 22 joining Xbox Game Pass cropped up last week, courtesy of Twitter user IdleSloth. At the time, they claimed it was available already, but later backtracked and said it will be added on Thursday, May 5.

FIFA 22 is faring much better but has still suffered a notable drop. Upwards of nearly 90,000 people were playing it in February, but it’s currently averaging at under 37,500 players.
