EA Access comes to Xbox One

Written by David Stellmack

$30 a year for access to EA titles

A new service from Electronic Arts is coming to the Xbox One. The new service is called “EA Access” and the subscription services gives members access to triple-A EA titles for $4.99 a month or $29.99 per year. The service rolls out today in beta for a limited number of players.

In the beta for EA Access, players will have unlimited access to FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4. More titles of course will be added. What is not clear is if EA Access also grants access to the DLC content that has been released for the games that are included in the program or not.

As a bonus, EA Access members also get 10% off of digital purchases of EA games on Xbox One. Also EA Access includes another big benefit which is early access to upcoming games. What this means is that EA Access members will be able to download and play trials of upcoming titles as many as five days ahead of their actual launch on the Xbox One.

Titles that are known to be included are Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA Live 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition. Perhaps the best part of this early access to the trials is that the progress of EA Access members will transfer over into the full game when it is released. A very nice bonus for sure.

Xbox One owners will be able to buy month or yearly access to EA Access by buying a membership/subscription via Xbox Live or at Amazon and GameStop. (Other retail locations are expected to be added later.)
