EA Access launches for Xbox One
The EA Access games subscription service has emerged from beta and is now available to all Xbox One owners.
EA’s ambitious service launched in beta at the end of July, offering a group of players unlimited access to a small selection of EA games for a fixed $4.99 per month.
Now EA has confirmed that the full service is up and running and available to all Xbox One owners in the UK, US, Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand and Spain.
Here in the UK, the service costs £3.99 per month or £19.99 per year.
This allows you to play EA titles including Battlefield 4, Peggle 2, Madden 25, FIFA 14, and more. It also grants you the ability to play forthcoming EA games up to five days before release.
So far confirmed for this part of the deal is FIFA 15, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Madden NFL 15, and NHL 15. These titles can be downloaded by subscribers ahead of time, and they’ll then be granted a limited period of time to play them ahead of release day.
In fact, Madden NFL 15 won’t be available to play early through any other means. EA has told Polygon that it won’t be releasing a demo for the game prior to launch.
The other chief benefit to signing up for EA Access is money off full digital purchases. You’ll get 10 percent off everything, including games, expansion packs, and EA’s virtual currencies for things like FIFA Ultimate Team points.
