Destiny 2, Tetris Effect Connected, and EA Play lead a busy month for Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Series X/S might be in sniffing distance, but that doesn’t mean Microsoft is neglecting Xbox Game Pass this month, with subscribers now confirmed to be getting the likes of Destiny 2, Halo 4, and Tetris Effect Connected in November, depending on their platform of choice.

Gears of War’s turn-based strategy spin-off Gears Tactics is available on Game Pass for console and Android today, and tomorrow, 10th November, is a particularly busy one. Not only does Xbox Series X/S finally burst into the wild, Destiny 2: Beyond Light and theme park sim Planet Coaster: Console Edition join Game Pass for Android and console, while Tetris Effect: Connected, a multiplayer expansion of Eurogamer’s 2018 game of the year, comes to console and PC.

Tomorrow, 10th November, also marks the debut of EA Play on Xbox Game Pass; it’ll initially be available for console players, but PC subscribers can get in on the action a little later, from 15th December. Microsoft notes a small selection of EA titles will be playable on Android devices via cloud gaming from tomorrow – Dragon Age: Inquisition, Madden NFL 20, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, The Sims 4, and Unravel 2 – with more being added over time.
