Dirt Rally 2.0 will be removed from the Xbox Game Pass on Thursday, after it has been playable through the subscription service for a whole year. While this is bad news for rally enthusiasts, Microsoft announced on Tuesday, that there will be a replacement for racing fans: Forza Motorsport 7.

That being said, Xbox players who subscribed to the Game Pass will then be able to play both Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7 on their console without the need to buy them.

At the same time, Microsoft has revealed that EA Play will be joining the ultimate and PC version of the Xbox Game Pass on November 10 for console players. PC users have to be a little more patient and need to wait until December to enjoy EA Play. At the moment, EA Play features four racing games: the Need for Speed games Heat, Payback and Rivals as well as Burnout Paradise Remastered.

EA Play usually also allows users to play trials of new and upcoming games published by Electronic Arts for a maximum of ten hours. With a Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit remaster being rumored for November, Xbox owners might be able to get their hands on the new version of the iconic racing game.

The Xbox Game Pass requires a monthly payment of €9.99 for PC and €12.99 for the ultimate version. This will not change with the addition of EA Play. The console version of the pass is also €9.99 a month, but you don’t get an EA Play membership with this subscription.

The Xbox Game Pass is currently available on Windows PCs and all editions of Xbox One. You can subscribe to it on the upcoming Xbox Series X as well, which is available from November 10.
