EA Access Vault is free next week for Xbox One owners with Gold

Xbox One owners with Xbox Live Gold memberships will be able to enjoy a week of complementary access to the archives of the EA Access subscription service next week.

From January 19-24 (via Major Nelson), gamers can play more than a dozen titles, without forking over the usual monthly subscription fee.

The 14 games available during the newly announced Free Play Days initiative are: Battlefield Hardline, EA Sports UFC, Battlefield 4, FIFA 15, Madden 25, Dragon Age: Inquisition, NHL 15, Titanfall, Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, Need for Speed Rivals, NBA LIVE 15, Peggle 2, FIFA 14, and Madden 14.

Users must download the EA Access Hub from the Gold area of the Xbox One dashboard in order to enjoy access to the titles.

Once the trial is up, Xbox One owners will need to fork out for a monthly (£3.99/$4.99) or annual subscription (£19.99/$29.99) in order to continue enjoying the games.

Paying customers will then go on to receive benefits like 10 per cent off all purchases from the EA Store, while subscribers also get exclusive early access to forthcoming games before they’re released to the public

Earlier this week EA launched a version of the service for PC gamers, under the moniker EA Origin Access.
