EA Access Announced by Electronic Arts
Electronic Arts has just announced EA Access, a new offering to gamers that provides access to plenty of EA games as well as special perks. The new program, which is available immediately in beta form for a limited number of Xbox One players, is a subscription-based model that is specifically tailored to Xbox One owners. In the beta state four games are available, including FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4; more games are scheduled to be added in the near future. Besides unlimited and instant access to EA titles, subscribers to EA Access receive special benefits that include 10% off purchases of EA digital content for Xbox One offered through the Xbox Games Store, 10% off membership services such as Battlefield 4 Premium, and trials of new EA games up to five days before their respective release date.
EA Access currently costs $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year. The service can be purchased through Xbox Live as soon as it is out of beta, and GameStop will even carry EA Access membership cards in local retail stores for those looking to purchase a subscription at a physical location.
