Xbox Game Pass: What Happens If You're Already An EA Play Member?

Microsoft made the impressive announcement earlier today that EA Play would be joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate & PC later this year, bringing over 60 more games to the subscription at no extra cost.

If you're already an EA Play member, however, you might be wondering how this affects you - especially if you pay yearly and you recently renewed your subscription. Fortunately, we've got a (brief) answer.

Here's what Xbox Live's Major Nelson has to say about it:

"Users who have both Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play purchased through Xbox 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 based on ERP"

Basically, this means you'll benefit from any extra months you have on your Xbox-bought EA Play subscription in the form of more Xbox Game Pass Ultimate time, which sounds good to us!

That said, it's not the most all-encompassing answer. People still have questions about how stacked memberships of multiple years will work due to certain restrictions, as well as third-party EA Play purchases from the likes of Amazon and GAME (we're assuming those aren't applicable), so hopefully Microsoft will go more in-depth on this soon.
