Don’t forget EA Access free for Xbox Live Gold members this week

Don’t forget, all Xbox Live Gold members can use EA Access for free this week.

If you’re an Xbox Live Gold member and you have an Xbox One, you can use EA Access for free for the entirety of this week.

EA Access is usually a £3.99 per month membership service on the Xbox One, but this week Electronic Arts is giving you full access for free.

The service is mainly comprised of The Vault, which is what Xbox One owners get the keys to this week (from January 19 – 24).

The Vault currently includes 14 games, which you can play in full (for this week or forever if you stump up that £3.99 a month):

To get access to the games within the Vault you’ll need to download the EA Access Hub app, which you can do from the home dashboard or from the Xbox One store.

If you decide to start paying for a full EA Access membership when this one week’s trial run out, you’ll also get the EA Access Trials, which gives you early trial access to a game before it’s released.

Come release day, you can then buy the full game (with an extra 10% EA Access discount) and pick up where you left off, as your save files are carried over.

EA Access is free for Xbox One owners with an Xbox Live Gold membership from February 19 – 24.
