Xbox/PC Game Pass members will be getting Bethesda games(The Elder Scrolls, Fallouts, Doom, etc) for *Free

Microsoft has agreed to acquire ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Doom and Fallout studio Bethesda Softworks, for $7.5 billion in cash. The acquisition follows earlier Bethesda games coming to Xbox Game Pass on console and PC, and it gives Microsoft control of upcoming games like the space epic Starfield. Microsoft says future Bethesda games, including Starfield, will launch on Xbox Game Pass the day they come to Xbox or PC.

Damn, still debating on xbox vs PS5. I own all three consoles this generation and played PS4 the most. But game pass is getting hotter. I also found my game play time is getting shorter with everything going on in life. Getting a game pass may make money go to waste...

Ya, my current game pass sub that i got for $1 ends in February. I'm expecting my 2nd daughter in January so I'm thinking the same thing with money going to waste if I renew it. Maybe in a few years I'll have the time to justify it, but probably not.

I am a lifelong Xbox owner. That said I really do think that both consoles will give you a great experience.

It’s great that Microsoft is really pushing hard to give their fans and owners some value. I am excited to see what Sony comes out with for their PS5 owners.

Does this mean we'll be seeing doom eternal on game pass in the near future?

According to Bloomberg, Microsoft expects the acquisition to close in the second half of fiscal year 2021, so sometime between January 1 and June 30.
Anytime before July 1, 2021 IMO.

They are both good, but in terms of actual specs and power the series x is best. If people get playstation instead its for the games.

Most people play more in the winter, I think that will be even more true this year. I think the ps5 might just be too hard to even get a hold of this year.

So it is like you can play the games in the library as long as you are paying? Does that mean I can play the game I want for 1 month and beat it? And next time there is a game I want I open another account pay for 1 dollar again can work?

Will Microsoft stop developing Bethesda games for playstation or will they treat it similar to Minecraft and keep it multiplatform?

I usually alternate. I had the 360 then PS4 and will be going back to xbox.

That is the best way to get your money's worth because when Microsoft slacks, Sony would be killing it and vice versa.

But if you plan on playing anything Bethesda and ZOS games(which is usually amazing). Get Xbox.

ESO players on the PS4 should be worried. It would suck if they can't play it.
