Over a year after Microsoft's initial announcement, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is finally heading to Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Back at X019, Microsoft announced they would be adding ten Final Fantasy games to the Xbox Game Pass in 2020. Over a year later, and we've only seen six of the promised games, with Final Fantasy XV already having said its farewells and leaving Game Pass on February 1.

Earlier this year, a Microsoft spokesperson said they would be bringing the remaining Final Fantasy games "in 2021 and beyond," with Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age being the first to arrive on 11 February.

Xbox Game Pass currently houses Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, and Final Fantasy IX. We're still waiting for Final Fantasy X: HD Remastered, Final Fantasy X-2: HD Remastered, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII to be added.

Before Final Fantasy XII arrives, February 4 will see the likes of Ghost of a Tale, Project Winter, and The Falconeer arriving on Game Pass for PC, with World of Horror leaving Game Pass on February 15. Still no word on when EA Play is heading to Game Pass for PC, either.

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
