Today, EA revealed EA Access, an Xbox One-exclusive subscription service that grants players access to EA's so-called Vault.
Subscribing to EA Access will cost $4.99 a month (or $29.99 a year), and since the program is technically in beta, only four games will initially be available: FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4, "with more titles being added soon."
Additionally, EA Access will also net subscribers 10 percent discounts on all EA digital content, which includes full games and DLC, as well as access to trials of new EA games nearly a week before they come out (with saves that copy over to the final game, should you choose to purchase it later). Games that will be eligible for early access and save copy-over are Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA Live 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Memberships can be purchased on Xbox Live, and will also be available at retail stores like GameStop and online destinations like Amazon. The subscription service will launch "soon," according to EA, and will be available in North America and Europe.
We'll have more on EA Access as soon as it launches.
Could be a sweet deal when out of beta. Thoughts? --- Always O.G.
It would be great if they could get the Dead space series on it. I might give the service a shot. --- Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.--General Patton
Oh wait....trials of new games, I might pass. They had this last gen sort of where you can get early access to games but that's all. Sounds like you get to trial new games but you would need to wait a long time before they're available to play again, you just get the older ones. --- Own: Xbox one, 360, PS3, Wii Richard is also known as Dick.
