If there’s one thing I don’t like about being a PC user, it’s the number of apps and launchers you need to have in order to play your games. For me, everything should go through the Microsoft or Steam store, but luckily for the competition, I don’t decide the market. Though It would not be bad if all the publishers created some kind of common platform because it starts to get a bit tedious.
If you’re a regular user of Electronic Arts games, you’ll remember that their old launcher, Origin, was a real headache. So the company has decided to work on a new PC app, improving the experience, access to EA Play and the ability to connect multiple accounts from other stores. A complete success in my opinion.
We tested the new EA Play app for PC
So we have tested how it goes, I was especially concerned about possible support for Game Pass that I have missed so much and the user experience in general. However, nothing could be further from the truth with this new app, it feels fresh and light, and the login process with any of your accounts is as simple as pressing the icon and wait to receive the confirmation code.
You can import your friends and communicate with them from the app, a necessary advantage. The games and promotions area feels clean, with nothing to disturb, with clear prices and promotions in sight. Zero problems with this. You can download it from its official website through this link.
How to set up Game Pass with the new EA Play app
It is possible that when you first connect it to your account, you may have questions about how to configure access to games in Game Pass. When you enter the EA Play app you will not see that you have an active subscription despite logging in with your Xbox account, and this can be a bit daunting, but don’t worry because it is an error with the login at the beginning and it is easy to solve.
To use EA Play through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on the PC app, just follow these steps:
- Install the app, and connect your Xbox account.
- Completely close the application.
- Open the Xbox app and look for an EA Play game in the Game Pass section.
- Click on install.
- Now it will ask you for a confirmation code that will arrive in your Xbox email account.
- Done, you can see that you have an active EA Play subscription if you have Game Pass Ultimate.
