EA Access is Now Live on Xbox One

The Beta of Electronic Arts’ recently announced “EA Access” has now officially gone live on Microsoft’s Xbox One, and with it comes the ability to subscribe monthly to a selection of EA titles exclusively on that particular console.

As a refresher for those who aren’t aware of EA Access, EA Access is a monthly subscription that allows for players to play EA games from “The Vault”, which is a catalogue of EA’s biggest titles on the Xbox One. These titles will be available to download and play right off the bat after subscribing.

During EA Access’ Beta period, subscribers will have unlimited access to four EA games:

  • FIFA 14

  • Madden NFL 25

  • Peggle 2

  • Battlefield 4

More titles are said to be added soon; this selection amounts to more that $100 worth of games for a small price per month.

As additional benefits to subscribing to EA Access, you’ll also receive a 10 percent discount on purchases of EA digital content on the Xbox One via the console’s Xbox Games Store. As it currently stands, you can use this 10 percent discount to save you money on digitally buying a selection of titles, which have been listed below (with more to follow soon).

  • Madden NFL 15

  • Madden Ultimate Team

  • Battlefield 4

  • Battlefield 4 Premium

  • FIFA 15, FIFA Ultimate Team


  • Need for Speed Rivals

  • Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare

  • Peggle 2

  • NBA LIVE 14

Along with the discount, you’ll be able to download upcoming EA titles five days before they release, for a limited time. This also means that subscribing to EA Access will grant you timed access to the games such as Madden NFL 15 , NHL 15 , FIFA 15 , NBA LIVE 15 and Dragon Age: Inquisition before they launch.

If you want to continue playing a game once the timer has expired, you can purchase it and pick up right where you left off.

Furthermore, it has been confirmed that EA Access won’t require an Xbox LIVE Gold membership in order to access the games the service offers, but you’ll still need membership to play games online–even via EA Access.

What’s more, Sony has explained why EA Access won’t be coming to its PlayStation 4, saying that the service “ does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect.

We’ll bring you more on EA Access should further information reach our ears.
