EA Access launched last year promising to give fans all sorts of bonuses such as early access to unreleased games along with discounts on popular titles and even some free access to titles in EA’s backlog. The subscription service is currently exclusive to the Xbox One.
To help entice more people to utilize EA Access on Xbox One, EA executive, Peter Moore, took to the stage during Microsoft’s E3 press conference to announce that the program is growing in size once more, including a few new details.
The first reveal from Peter Moore came for Respawn Entertainment’s popular Xbox One shooter, Titanfall. The title, which recently made all of it’s DLC available for free is coming to the service later this week for EA Access subscribers. Not only that, the popular RPG, Dragon Age Inquisition, is coming to the service sometime later this summer.
In addition to the added titles, fans wanting to try out the service without committing any money first will finally have their chance as EA is opening up the service this week during E3 for all Xbox Live Gold Members. Current vault games include Battlefield 4, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, and FIFA 15, to name a few.
While EA Access members receive a number of bonuses including 10% off upcoming titles, many fans may jump on this program in the coming months due to EA announcing that subscribers will be able to go hands on with Star Wars Battlefront before anyone else. What isn’t yet known is how limited the game will be in early access considering that other titles released early have some of their features restricted until the actual release date.
While EA continues to make EA Access a worthy addition for gamers on the Xbox One, not everyone appears to be a fan of the service. After it’s announcement at Gamescom, many fans wondered why the service wasn’t available on the PlayStation 4 as well. As it turned out, Sony didn’t see much value in the $5 per month fee and opted to pass, instead focusing on their own services such as the PSNow rental program.
