The Xbox One has gained a lot of new users since its release, and Electronic Arts has been a strong supporter for games for the next generation console. On Tuesday, EA and Microsoft announced a new subscription type service for the Xbox One that will revolutionize gameplay.
The new service called EA Access is set to give users access to a library of Electronic Arts games for the Xbox One exclusively. It will run a flat fee of $4.99 per month, or it will be available on a yearly basis. Either way, it will transform gaming like Netflix has done for video.
How EA Access Works For Xbox One
The EA Access program is set to roll out in a beta form initially and will roll out soon for all Xbox One users. The monthly membership program allows for users to access a number of EA titles for the next generation console, and allows for them to download and play them whenever they want.
In addition, it will allow users to unlock The Vault, which will include Fifa 14, Madden NFL 25r, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4 initially. The titles will be updated over time and users can just click and download them when desired. It also will include trials of new EA games up to give days before the release date.
How EA Access Can Help Xbox One
The EA Access program will be great for the Xbox One. For only $29.99 per year, users can play four hot games and get access to play 4-5 more in the future. With Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA LIVE 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition being available soon, this proves to make EA Access well worth the money.
This will be an exclusive to the Xbox One platform, and won’t be available on the Playstation 4, which should give Microsoft an edge over Sony in the platform wars. These games are huge bestsellers, so giving users a cheap way to subscribe to them will help them sell better. Plus its cheap and has a great list of games as well.
I can’t wait to try this out from EA. I love EA games, so I will be subscribing right away.
