Will you be able to team up with fellow Xbox Game Pass players on Elden Ring?

As it stands, From Software has not released any information regarding Elden Ring’s release on Xbox Game Pass. But don’t fear – not all hope is lost.

This could signal one of a few things. For starters, it’s likely that such a massive release would drive Microsoft to include the title on Game Pass, and Elden Ring would likely want to promote that in advance, as well.

There’s also just as good of a chance that devs want players to purchase the game outright, then release it on Game Pass in late-2022 or even 2023.

This has been the case with other major releases in the past, rewarding those players with enough patience to hold out. But with so much hype surrounding the game, it’s hard to say whether anyone will be able to wait.
