Every week, MobileSyrup goes over some of the biggest titles to recently hit gaming services, such as Xbox Game Pass, Google Stadia, PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus.
We’ll also highlight any Canadian titles when relevant.
Monster Energy Supercross — The Official Videogame 4

Alongside the Game Pass additions, Xbox also put together a “hype trailer” featuring footage from its established franchises like Halo and Gears of War amusingly “crossing over” with Bethesda series like The Elder Scrolls, Fallout and Doom — all to the tune of “Blinding Lights” from Toronto’s own The Weeknd. Check out that video above.
Additionally, Microsoft also recently hosted a roundtable between Xbox boss Phil Spencer and other members of the Xbox team and many notable figures from the Bethesda family, such as renowned game designer Todd Howard. While the video didn’t contain any new game announcements, it did offer an in-depth look at the Bethesda studios that are joining the Xbox family.
Xbox Game Pass is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Android. Game Pass for Console and Game Pass for PC each cost $11.99/month.
Meanwhile, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $16.99/month and is required for Android (‘Cloud’) streaming. On top of that, this tier includes Game Pass for both Console and PC, as well as an Xbox Live Gold subscription and access to EA Play.
Newcomers can sign up for their first month of Game Pass Ultimate for $1.
