The Xbox Series X and Series S launch plans were revealed earlier this week in a blog post penned by Xbox boss Phil Spencer.
In it Spencer wrote: “Now more than ever, gaming plays an important role in our lives. As one of the greatest forms of creative expression, gaming sparks in our imagination and connects us to new worlds, stories, and our friends.
“On November 10, a new generation of console gaming begins. That’s when our vision becomes reality with the most performant, immersive and compatible next-generation console gaming experiences, and the freedom to play your games with your friends, anytime, anywhere.”
Spencer also confirmed that the Xbox Series X and Series S will be available to purchase via monthly Xbox All Access prices plans.
These prices plans last for 24 months, with the Series S programme costing £20.99 a month and the Series X plan priced at £28.99.
This will give you a shiny new next-gen console as well as access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – which offers Game Pass’s library of over 100 games as well as online multiplayer gaming via Xbox Live Gold.
Another big announcement Spencer made is that EA Play is being added to Xbox Game Pass at no extra cost, further increasing the value of this incredible scheme.
More than 60 EA games such as FIFA 20, Burnout Paradise Remastered and Need for Speed Heat will be playable thanks to the addition of EA Play.
