EA has just unveiled EA Access, which is a Netflix-like service for games published by EA. The service will be exclusive to Microsoft’s Xbox One users.
Since EA Access is technically only in beta at the moment, it only has four games available: Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, and Peggle 2. More titles are coming soon, EA has assured us. Currently, the program costs only $4.99 a month, or $29.99 a year.
On top of that, EA Access will give users a 10 percent discount on all EA content, including both full games and DLC on the Xbox One. The service will also grant users free access to trials of certain EA games before they are released.
The company announced that the following games will give users early access: Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA Live 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The subscription service will be available in both Europe and North America, and can be purchased through Xbox Live, as well as stores like GameStop and online stores like Amazon. EA has said that the service will be launching this summer for Xbox One users.
There has been no word if EA Access will be coming to Sony’s Playstation 4 console yet.
