EA’s subscription service, EA Access, now has a launch date on the Playstation 4. This July, players can sign-up for a monthly subscription of $4.99/month or $29.99/year to get the benefits of the service. EA Access is already available to PC users through the Origin service and Xbox One users. We should mention that EA Access has been open on Xbox One since 2014, and since then, EA launched Origin Access for PC, and Origin Access Premiere. In the past, Sony was against bringing EA Access to the platform, claiming that the service wasn’t a great enough value to justify the added cost.
“As we continue to invest in digital and subscription services, bringing great games to even more players across more platforms is an exciting opportunity for everyone,” said Matt Bilbey, Executive VP of Strategic Growth. “Our goal is to give players more choice to try and play our games wherever and however they choose, and we’re happy to bring EA Access to PlayStation 4.”
The EA Access service lets players into the Play First Trials, where they can play up to 10 hours from selected EA games to test them out before buying them. Subscribers also enjoy a 10% discount on full game purchases, expansions, in-game items and more. Additionally, players can jump into a growing library of EA games at no additional cost through “The Vault.” You’ll find classic franchises like Battlefield, EA Sports, FIFA, Star Wars Battlefront, and more on the service. You can also find games like Unravel, Need for Speed, Titanfall, Fe, Mass Effect, Batman, and Dragon Age in the service on PC, but EA did not confirm all of The Vault titles that will be available on the PS4.
