There are many speculations on just how many perks Xbox players will garner by Microsoft acquiring Bethesda studios. What exactly will Xbox users benefit from this acquisition? Well, we know that Microsoft has released a hefty chunk of the Bethesda catalog for Xbox Game Pass users. Also, if you have Ultimate, you can enjoy most on the PC as well.
The catalog of available Bethesda games on Xbox Game Pass include: Dishonored: Definitive Edition, Dishonored 2; Doom 1993, Doom 2, Doom 3, Doom 64, Doom Eternal; Elder Scrolls: Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, and Online; The Evil Within; Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout: 76; Prey; Rage 2; and Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Old Blood, and Youngblood.
Revisiting older games will allow you to take advantage of the Xbox Series X hardware if you own one. With stronger hardware, you can expect better performance than previous Xbox models. PC players usually play the best versions, but some games are only available on the console and/or cloud Game Pass: Fallout: New Vegas and Elder Scrolls Online.
The slightly confusing bit is that some titular Bethesda games are MIA. The Evil Within 2 is missing, though The Evil Within is available. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is nowhere to be found, even though Dishonored 1 and 2 are there. Curiously, Doom 2016 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus were available on the Xbox Game Pass but were removed previously. Will they be making a blood-covered return now as well? We assume so, honestly.
Regardless, you can now enjoy a plethora of Bethesda titles on the high valued Xbox Game Pass.
