“EA Access” Service Announced for Xbox One
Electronic Arts has announced EA Access, a new service created in partnership with Microsoft that offers another way for gamers to play EA released games exclusively for Xbox One. The gamer will have to pay a monthly or annual membership starting at $4.99 per month, which will grant access to the “The Vault”, a library of EA titles to download and play.
“The service is being rolled out in beta to a limited number of players today, but it will launch for everyone on Xbox One soon,” the announcement says. “At EA, we are always looking for new ways to make it easier for gamers to play more EA games across all platforms, and we are excited about what EA Access will offer to players on Xbox One.”
During the Beta, players will be able to download FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4, granting unlimited access to $100 worth of games for $4.99 a month. More titles are set to be added soon, and as an EA Access member you’ll also be granted additional benefits such as:
While a monthly subscription to EA Access will cost you $4.99, an annual membership will cost $29.99 via Xbox Live for Xbox One. Also, you’ll be able to purchase an EA Access membership at local retail stores in the US, as well as GameStop and Amazon in Europe and EB Games in Canada.
EA Access will be launching exclusively on Xbox One soon! It is a great move from Microsoft and Electronic Arts, which will help both parties to establish a long and gamer-friendly marketing strategy.
