We can’t imagine there’s a lot of people out there unaware of EA Access and what it’s used for, but for those of you who’ve been living under a rock for the last two years. It’s a subscription service which allows users to pay a monthly fee, and play some of EA’s top titles. No doubt it’s an appealing prospect as paying the collective price of all the games available would be considerably more expensive than a small monthly fee, even if you left it rolling.
It becomes even more appealing when you consider that EA are committed to keeping the application up-to-date, and that it comes with a host of other benefits such as discounts and early access to new EA titles. It really is a no brainer, but if you’re still yet to try it then you’ll be glad to hear that when June comes around you’ll be able to try the service, completely free of charge.
While details of the promotion are yet to be announced, a recent report has stated that from June 12th of this year, EA Access will drop its subscription fee for 10 days. Meaning Xbox Live Gold members will be able to access a host of EA games completely free of charge, including Titanfall, Battlefield: Hardline, Fifa 16, Dragon Age and more… To name a few.
Obviously, nothing can be confirmed until there’s some form of official announcement but the report itself comes from reliable sources. It’s likely that EA are gearing up for some form of announcement in relation to the service as part of their E3 2016 briefing, but again this is of course just speculation. Whatever the reason it doesn’t really matter, it’s an opportunity to trial what could well be the future of how we manage our collection of video games.
