EA Access, the publishing giant’s dedicated subscription service, will be launching for the PlayStation 4 tomorrow, in case you needed reminding. The service is already available for the Xbox One, where it supports a decent chunk of titles, including franchises such as Battlefield, FIFA, NHL, and Star Wars Battlefront.
EA Access Comes To PS4 Tomorrow
EA previously confirmed a full list of titles launching with Access for PS4, including Battlefield V, Burnout Paradise Remastered, FIFA 19, Mass Effect Andromeda, and Titanfall 2. Notably, this includes a few games that aren’t present in the Xbox One lineup.
As it stands, the Xbox One version of EA Access houses more titles than the PS4 edition, and it remains unknown at this point if the publisher will bring these over to Sony’s console. However, it’s worth noting that Xbox One supports backwards compatibility, whereas the PS4 does not.
Looking ahead, the PS5 will support this feature, so presumably EA will take advantage of this assuming EA Access makes the transition to next-generation systems, which it almost certainly will.
EA Access comes in two subscription models: you can grab it for one month at £3.99 or £19.99 for one year.
The service originally launched for the Xbox One back in summer 2014, and while EA also pitched it to Sony at the time, the console maker opted not to participate. The idea of EA Access is that members have unlimited access to any games in the ‘Vault,’ providing their subscription is active.
EA has pledged that it will not remove games from the lineup, although there are some notable exceptions. FIFA 14, for example, was removed after EA ceased support for the online portion of the footie title, although players were still able to play it offline providing it was installed on their system.
