It Looks Like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Is Coming to Xbox Game Pass

The Xbox Game Pass Twitter account is the weird little brother of the main Xbox Twitter account, sharing dank memes and exciting games regularly. Its latest tease suggests Star Wars fans have something to be excited about in the name of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order possibly coming to EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Alright so follow along. On November 10, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers enjoy a new perk of membership which gives them an EA Play membership as well, all included for the same $15 per month price. Recently, the Xbox Game Pass Twitter account shared an image of a calendar which is meant to drum up excitement for the incoming addition of EA Play for subscribers. But on November 19, the calendar teases "Use the Force" highlighted in yellow. 

While the rest of the calendar jokes about many of the other games players can access with their subscription, such as FIFA, Madden, and Battlefield, this one being highlighted like that obviously calls special attention to it, which seems to suggest it's not a reference to Star Wars Battlefront 2, which is already in EA Play and has been for some time.

So, if it's not Battlefront 2, it's likely a teaser for Jedi Fall Order, one of 2019's most beloved games and EA's best-reviewed Star Wars game ever. Its OpenCritic rating today stands at an impressive 83, with 84% of critics recommending the game for play.

The timeline checks out for EA too, as the company likes to add games to the EA Play Vault roughly one year after launch, sometimes even sooner - or much sooner, like Rocket Arena. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launched on November 15, 2019, so it will be almost exactly one year later on November 19.

This remains speculative for now, so take it with a grain of midichlorians, but it's in line with the weird way the Game Pass Twitter likes to tease games, and so long as EA is happy to let the social team at Game Pass get weird with their games too, it seems we can expect more such teases in the future.
