With a focus on vintage Bethesda titles and The Elder Scrolls spin-offs, Xbox has unveiled a slew of new Game Pass additions. After being acquired by Microsoft in 2021, Bethesda has gradually shifted many of its most well-known games to the subscription service. These games include those with Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Wolfenstein, Dishonored, and many others.

There are already several cherished Bethesda-published games available on Xbox Game Pass, spanning from vintage titles to more recent titles. Xbox Game Pass is one of the best options for people who have an active membership to access a variety of Bethesda content for a single monthly charge. While Xbox has been trying to add more Bethesda back catalog games to the service, there are also upcoming games to look forward to, such as the upcoming Redfall, a vampire adventure game released by Bethesda, which will be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one of its release in 2023.

Xbox Game Pass has now added additional Bethesda games to its PC library, this time in recognition of QuakeCon, as announced on Twitter. Quake 4, An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire, The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard, Wolfenstein 3D, and Return to Castle Wolfenstein are the games that have so far been added. There is no information yet on whether or when these will be accessible on Xbox platforms; at the moment, they are just for PC Game Pass subscribers. All of these games are, however, also offered for PC on Steam and GOG for those people who don’t use Game Pass. In honor of QuakeCon, GOG is presently offering steep discounts (up to 80% off) on all Bethesda games, including all the games mentioned above and dozens more.

More vintage Bethesda games are now available on PC Game Pass.

Bethesda appears to be digging deeply into its past archives and opening up older titles to PC players. As of last month, PC players who were beta testing the Xbox Insider program received a number of classic games for free, including Quake Champions and Daggerfall. These two occasions are just two of the outcomes of the Microsoft-Bethesda merger from the previous year, in which Microsoft paid Bethesda $7.5 billion. Microsoft has since helped itself to the impressively sizable selection of games, both recent and old, that are now at its disposal.

More and more old-school favorites from Bethesda and id Software are being added to Game Pass for PC. Fans of the Elder Scrolls, Wolfenstein, Quake, and other classic Bethesda franchises may anticipate seeing their old favorites on more devices. For PC Game Pass subscribers, these games and more are now available.
