EA Announces Subscription Games Service [UPDATED]
Electronic Arts today announced EA Access, an exclusive gaming subscription service. The beta for this service is scheduled to launch “this summer” for the Xbox Live users on the Xbox One only. $4,99 per month or $29.99 per year gives users unlimited access to the Vault, EA’s repository of previously released titles. The inaugural group of games will be Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, and Peggle 2. Additionally EA Access membership also grants users early access to new Electronic Arts titles, up to 5 days early. The amount of early access of each game will be dictated by the individual title. Additionally, all future digital purchases for new titles are 10% off!
EA Access enrollment will initially be available via the EA Access Hub app on the Xbox One. It will also be available for purchase through GameStop and Game retail outlets sometime after it becomes available on the console. EA Access will be available only for Xbox One users who have Xbox Live Gold living in the following territories: Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States with additional territories to follow.
