Best answer: EA Access includes access to over 50 games from the company's Vault, sans the Xbox exclusives that won't be compatible on the PlayStation 4. On top of this, with an EA Access subscription, you'll be able to test out EA games days before they release.

Everything that comes with EA Access for PlayStation 4

Think of every EA game you've ever played. This includes titles like Titanfall, Mass Effect, FIFA, Need for Speed, Battlefield, and so on. There are plenty of phenomenal titles and that equates to a lot of money to play them all. But, what if you didn't have to purchase each game separately? What if you could pick the games you want and play them when you want to?

Well, that's what EA Access is. Each month EA features over 50 of its own games (averaging around 73 total) that you can pick and choose from to play as you wish. What's even cooler is that you also get to test new EA games days before they release. With a subscription to EA Access, you're not only expanding your game library for essentially what's only a rental fee, but you're also giving yourself the opportunity to have bragging rights in your friend's group.

How much will EA Access cost?

PlayStation users will pay the same amount for EA Access that Xbox users pay. You can choose to spend $5 for a monthly subscription or $30 for an annual subscription. That means it costs exactly half the price to pay for the annual subscription. Sometimes you may catch a "one-month free trial" offer with the purchase of a new game, but there aren't any trial offers on the official EA website.

Alternatively, you can purchase your EA Access subscription from Amazon after the service goes live on the PlayStation Network. While the prices are the same as the ones set on the official EA website, there is a chance you'll run into a deal on Amazon for a cheaper price. Since EA Access isn't available on the PlayStation Store as of yet, we don't have Amazon options for you to check out. Instead, you can buy a PlayStation Gift card from Amazon to have the money in your account, so you can buy the subscription whenever it's ready.

Using gift cards on the PlayStation Network prevents you from having to share your bank or PayPal information on your PS Network account. A $10 gift card is enough to pay for two months on the monthly fee plan, but you can opt into a $50 gift card to purchase the $30 annual subscription and have $20 left over for whatever your heart desires.

We'll update this article with links to EA Access subscription cards as soon as they're live!
