What is EA Access?

EA Access is a digital game subscription service that gives you access to a catalogue of EA-published and developed games. Members also receive a 10% discount on EA digital purchases and are allowed to take part in 10-hour free trials of newly released games.

How much does it cost?

EA Access will cost $4.99/month or $29.99/year on PlayStation 4. Unlike Origin Access on PC which has a premium subscription plan, EA Access on consoles only has one-tier that you can choose from.

What is included?

EA has not provided a list of games that will be in the EA Access Vault on PS4, but the program is expected to maintain parity with Xbox One. At this time EA Access on Xbox One has over 70 games, but some are Xbox 360 games that are only available because of Xbox One backward compatibility. PlayStation does not currently have a backward compatibility program. In the case of EA Access on PS4, the company notes "over 50 games" will be included in the Vault.

Some of the games available on Xbox One include:

  • Battlefield 1
  • Titanfall 2
  • Star Wars Battlefront II
  • Unravel Two
  • Madden NFL 19
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Purchasing even a few of those would normally cost you more than what EA Access costs in one year, and with new games being added frequently, EA Access provides a great deal for players looking to save money.

For as long as your subscription is active, you'll have digital access to any games within the Vault.

When can I sign up for it on PlayStation 4?

EA Access won't be available on PlayStation 4 until July 2019. Until then you can sign up at EA's website to be informed by email when the service becomes available.
