Xbox insider Shpeshal Ed says that several Bethesda games will be available on Xbox Game Pass. We're probably looking at UPlay+ integration with Microsoft's subscription services, which is expected to cost US$5 extra. This is expected to happen by the end of 2021.

Rumours about Microsoft merging UPlay+ with Xbox Game Pass have been around since late last year when both companies talked about their highly-anticipated merger. Now that Microsoft has officially acquired Bethesda's parent company ZeniMax, the rumours are back again. This time around, it comes from a well-known Xbox insider called Shpeshal Ed (via AltChar).

However, we may have to wait till the end of 2021 for this to happen. It could be worth it, as Microsoft plans to bring the whole suite of Bethesda games to Xbox Game Pass. It'll cost a little extra (about US$5), though, but that shouldn't be a problem, considering the sheer number of games you get to play. Microsoft could even increase Xbox Game Pass' base price too, because why not?

You'll still need to subscribe to UPlay+ separately to play newer titles such as the upcoming Far Cry 6, because they won't be available on Xbox Game Pass immediately. That isn't surprising, considering that Bethesda usually keeps its new AAA games away from subscription services for nine-ish months.

The insider rounds things off by saying that Immortals Fenyx Rising (launched in December 2020) would be the newest title of the lot. UPlay+ lets you play the 'Deluxe' (or equivalent) versions of games, complete with all DLC and add-ons, and the Xbox Game Pass will likely let you do the same.
