Electronic Arts’ recently revealed premium subscription service EA Access has graduated from its Beta and available to all Xbox One owners today. The premium service lends members discounts on EA digital content, early access to upcoming game, and pre-release demos of full games.
For the price of $4.99 monthly (or $29.99 for a full year), Xbox One gamers can download games from the EA “Vault” at no additional charge. These titles will be downloaded, not streamed, and can be played as long as the subscription lasts. The games currently available in the Vault include Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, and Peggle 2, with more coming soon.
EA Access members will also gain free access to full, playable versions of EA games five days before their release date. The full versions of these games will be playable for a limited time. If a subscriber purchases the release version of the game they demoed, the progress they made in their pre-release demo can be carried over. Announced games as playable pre-release for EA Access subscribers include Madden NFL 15, FIFA 15, NHL 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition so far.
As long as an EA Access subscription lasts, members will receive a ten percent discount on all EA digital content, including purchases of the release versions of demo-able EA games, and digital expansion packs in Battlefield and FIFA Ultimate Team.
