    Gave Deep Rock Galactic a go and mechanically it seems fine, but a bit dull with unimpressive visuals. To be fair I don't do multiplayer, so maybe it's not really aimed at me.

    Also played more Earthshade and still enjoying it. The controls and movement are janky as hell, but it's an interesting world to explore, with plenty of mysteries to reveal.

    Just completed Maid of Sker. Would recommend, great atmosphere (horror) and it even has a "Story" mode which removes all combat, so if you fancy a nice spooky horror this is well worth a shout and only around 6 hours from start to finish.

    River City Girls on November 19th. PC and console, and also Android.

    Also a lot of other stuff, including some we already knew about.

    I didn't realise Planet Coaster was launching on Gamepass. Well chuffed, was going to buy it.

    Anyone had their EA play subscription converted to game pass ultimate yet?

    I bought 2 years of play yesterday for 27 quid (Hungary ms store). Hoping for 8 more months of ultimate but not yet transferred.

    Was just playing Gears Tactics last night on Game Pass. Reviews when the PC version released a few months seemed positive, but not overwhelmingly so....

    I absolutely love this. Visually, on X1X, with HDR and in quality mode, it's legitimately stunning. The cut scenes are pure Gears (which is a good thing IMO as I love the Gears universe). The story, whilst a side outing, is a prequel to the original Gears, which is great as I prefer the classic setting around emergence day.

    It can't be said enough though, how much this isn't just Xcom with a Gears skin. It's absolutely a Gears game, but with turn based tactical gameplay instead of the full on shooting action of the mainline series.

    I'm only about 4 hours in, but so far, brilliant game. With Game Pass, no harm in giving it a go anyway, but I'd highly recommend.

    From FAQ

    When the EA Play member benefit unlocks for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members, users who have both Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play purchased through the Microsoft Store will have their EA Play membership canceled and any remaining time over 50 days will be rounded up and converted to the nearest month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a ratio of 3:1.

    So December (I think?) for conversion to happen. Edit, nope I'm an idiot, should be today sometime then.

    Totally not my normal thing but I found Carto quite compelling for some reason. A couple of hours in and I think I'll play to completion. A nice, gentle game with some nifty map manipulation. Looks to be very linear fetch this, use that but a nice shift in pace.

    Would never have looked at it without Game Pass...

    Tetris Effect and Planet Coaster are up, no sign of Jedi Fallen Order yet though. Tetris is gonna eat a *lot* of my time.

    If you download Fallen Order via the Xbox app then it works.

    Tried Crysis (360 version) and its not fun to play, looks rough (as no doubt the 360 ver. was quick port) Also the AI is laughable, due to the fact the enemy can spot from mile away. Also its werid that there is no melee take down button, its hold down for kill that punches them and send them flying

    Fallen Order was listed when I browsed the EA Play section and is currently downloading.

    I'm joking of course.

    What a day! Series X set up.

    Jedi Fallen Order, Destiny2 Beyond Light, Gears Tactics, Tetris Effect, Planet Coaster...and virtually the entire EA catalogue all added to Gamepass.

    Team Green all the way.

    Very jealous of those of you who get to experience Jedi Fallen Order for the first time.

    Amazing game.

    I know I'll probably give up on it at some point. I read that it has no fast travel.

    I really want to go through it again, but with all the new games I canít justify it atm.

    Anyone getting a new Xbox today will hopefully see just how great Game Pass is, especially with the EA Play stuff being added.

    I canít imagine getting a Series X|S, getting Game Pass and then downloading Jedi Fallen Order, Doom Eternal, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, The Outer Worlds, Hellblade, Planet Coaster, etc, etc.

    Would be like being a kid locked in Toys R Us by yourself!

    @Ultrasoundwave

    I've had Game Pass for over a year and I've only completed Jeid Fallen Order of the games you've mentioned. Got Gears 4, 5 and Tactics installed. Forza Horizon 4. Tetris Effect. Planet Coaster. Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Yakuza Zero. Destiny 2 Beyond Light. All for no additional outlay.

    Cheers! Got it now, runs a lot smoother on my old OneX than it did on Ps4pro so I'll actually play it now.

    Hope everyone enjoys their new consoles and games - will likely make the jump in the new year.

    Coming from PS4 to a Series S and Gamepass is a bit overwhelming, I'm like a kid in a sweet shop. Currently enjoying The Touryst and Doom Eternal.

    Only a bit gutted that I'm gonna have to watch the storage space, damn Forza 7/Horizon 4 at 100gb!

    Is it correct that the storage expansion is £220 odd quid?! I couldn't find it on amazon but on the store on the marketplace. That's insane. Will there be 3rd party storage at some point?

    Think most standard USB HDs will work but wait for somebody knowledgeable because I did just buy the official green drive. Amazon marketplace commonly inflates things when stock is low these days, because greed, so look elsewhere. Argos is usually a good bet.

    Sure mine was in the fifty to sixty quid range.

    I was actually expected more from EA Play, although there are some good games that I'd enjoyed from the 360. I would have liked more new titles, but there's Fallen Order, so at least one I'm interested in.

    @Drakesmoke Ah, I'd overlooked the idea of an external drive. That could do me, hopefully there is a way to manage what is on the external and what is on the SSD for best performance. I will look into this, thanks.

    How spooky & scary is it Duff? It's loosely based on a Welsh folk tale so I'd like to give it a go. Just wanted to make sure my blood pressure can take it first :D
