Microsoft once again reminded players why Xbox Game Pass is a great place to be, this time around with a hefty sports package that should cover all the bases.

No matter what your sports poison may be, Microsoft will have something to your liking. They went full international too and included both footballs, so it doesn't really matter which side of the pond you are.

"To give you a replay, Madden NFL 21 just joined the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate library with EA Play (plus a few more games will hit The Play List soon!), but we’re not stopping there. Whether you’re looking to charge down the gridiron, hit the soccer pitch or want to shoot some three pointers on the court, we have you covered", they wrote.

Madden NFL 21 is already available for consoles, and Microsoft reminded that active members play as much as they want, in addition to snagging 3 Gold Team Fantasy MUT Packs each month. 

Come March 4, Sports Interactive's Football Manager 2021 will drop for PC and console players, and any football management enthusiasts would do well to check out this one. We're talking about undisputed champ of football managers, whose database is used by a few football clubs - 'nuff said. 

NBA 2K21 is coming to cloud and console on the same date as FM 2021, i.e. March 4, and much like its footballing colleague, it's been undisputed in the basketball simulation realism department.

Also part of their deal with EA is Star Wars: Squadrons, which will be coming to console in March, while NHL 21 fans will have to wait for April.
