Bethesda games on Game Pass
Xbox Bethesda event: All 20 new Xbox Game Pass Bethesda Games, ranked
Many great Bethesda games are coming to Xbox Game Pass! Following the completed acquisition on March 8, Microsoft and Bethesda held a roundtable to discuss their future together on March 11. During that conversation, Microsoft and Bethesda confirmed that 20 Bethesda games will be on the service starting on March 12.
While not all of them are new to the service (some are just returning to it), having 20 games from just one publisher is a rare feat on Xbox Game Pass. Almost all of the titles are great games too!
If you’re deciding which of these games you should play, we’ve ranked all 20 of the games that will be on Xbox Game Pass starting on March 12.

Arkane Studios’ sequel to a stealth game classic will come back to Game Pass on Xbox, PC, and Android.
6. Doom Eternal
2020’s best FPS game from iD Software is available on Game Pass for PC, Xbox, and Android.
5. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
This fantasy RPG needs little introduction as it is available on a wide variety of platforms and innovated the open-world RPG genre for the industry. If you’ve somehow missed out on this very important game or are looking for an excuse to jump back in Game Pass for PC, Xbox, and Android.
4. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
The Old Blood may just be standalone DLC for The New Order, but it surpasses the base game thanks to its World War 2 setting that sees BJ Blazkowicz infiltrating a Nazi compound. If the futuristic settings of MachineGames’ Wolfenstein games aren’t for you, try this out. It will be available for Game Pass across PC, Xbox, and Android.
The original Doom can be credited with creating the first-person shooter genre and is still extremely fun to play today. If you enjoy games like Call of Duty, or even the more modern Doom Eternal, you owe it to yourself to try this game. It’s available on Game Pass across PC, Xbox, and Android like the other classic Doom games.
2. Fallout: New Vegas
Fallout: New Vegas was actually made by Obsidian Entertainment, who also happens to be an Xbox studio now. It’s also considered to be the best modern Fallout game thanks to its excellent writing and a massive focus on player choice that makes it endlessly replayable. While it’s only available on Game Pass for Xbox, you should give this game a shot if you have a chance.
Dishonored is one of the best stealth games and immersive sims of all times thanks to its unique setting and excellent level and gameplay design that means you can go through a level without killing a single soul. If you enjoy stealth games and somehow haven’t given Dishonored a shot, you need to play it on Xbox Game Pass for PC, Xbox, and Android.
Also, all future Bethesda games should be on Xbox Game Pass day and date! On the topic of exclusivity, Phil Spencer confirmed during the roundtable that Bethesda is making “great exclusive games for you that ship on platforms where Game Pass exists,” so we should expect them to be a mainstay on the service from now on.
20 Bethesda games will be added to Xbox Game Pass on March 12, 2021.
