Xbox Game Pass adds today what is surely its biggest addition yet in 2023. By all accounts, this year has already been pretty strong when it comes to new Game Pass releases. Last January, the Xbox subscription platform brought titles like Persona 3 Portable, persona 4 golden, Hi-Fi Rush, Rise of the Monster Hunterand even the new remaster of GoldenEye 007. And while February is already looking very strong on paper for Game Pass, the service today brings the latest entry into one of gaming’s biggest franchises.
To coincide with the Super Bowl taking place this weekend, Madden NFL 23 join today Xbox Game Pass. Madden’s latest installment is available to download and play for Game Pass subscribers on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC platforms. The only caveat with this addition, however, is that Crazy 23 is added as part of the library of titles owned by EA Play. As such, EA Play games available through Game Pass can only be accessed through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. So if you’re only subscribed to the basic version of Game Pass for console or PC, you won’t be able to check out. Crazy 23 for you.

Although Madden NFL 23 is by far the biggest game landing on Xbox Game Pass today, it’s not the only new thing. SD Gundam Battle Alliance is also now on Game Pass for console, PC and cloud. Released in the second half of 2022, SD Gundam Battle Alliance is a multiplayer RPG where players can compete in a variety of different Mobile Suits. Although the answer to Battle Alliance has been a bit of a mixed bag from fans since its release, its appearance on Game Pass at least lowers the barrier of entry for those who have been willing to give it a shot.
Will you get to download and play Madden NFL 23 Or SD Gundam Battle Alliance thanks to Xbox Game Pass today? And do you think that Crazy 23 is the most notable title Game Pass has added so far this year? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
