The rumors were true! EA Access, the unlimited game subscription service, is launching on PS4 this summer. First available five years ago on Xbox One, EA Access opens up a world of games from the Electronic Arts’ portfolio on a subscription fee basis.
EA Access will run alongside PlayStation Now, Sony’s own subscription-based streaming service, and give players access to The Vault, where trials are available for a limited time before launch. There’s also exclusive discounts on games, expansion packs and in-game currency.
The big draw is that you can access a selection of games as much as want, providing you’re paying the monthly fee.
How Much Does EA Access Cost On PS4?
Pricing starts at $4.99 a month, and you’ll immediately be given 10% off any EA game you purchase. You can also sign up for one year for $29.99.
What Games Are On EA Access For PS4?
We don’t currently know which games will be offered when EA Access launches later this year, but you can get idea by looking at the Xbox One line-up. This includes titles such as:
- FIFA 18
- Battlefield 1
- Unravel 2
- Madden NFL 19
Though the service on Xbox One allows users to play some Xbox 360 games, this won’t be the case on PS4 due to the lack of backwards compatibility, a feature that has been confirmed for PS5.
When Does EA Access Launch For PlayStation 4?
The release window has been confirmed for July 2019, though an exact date has yet to be revealed.
Does My Xbox One Subscription Work On PS4?
Sadly, not. If you already own a subscription on Xbox One, you’d have to buy a new one for your PS4.
