EA welcome first backwards compatible title for EA Access

plants vs zombies ea accessEA Access has been growing stronger and stronger since its release in August of 2014, and the Vault is certainly one of its best features.  Every month, EA have added a new game to the Vault for subscribers to play at will, and for the first time, a backwards compatible Xbox 360 game has joined the lineup.

The game in question is Popcap’s amazing tower defense title Plants vs Zombies. Not Garden Warfare, the original game that inspired the third person shooter. It’s a fantastic strategy game, and one that everyone should have in their gaming library. For those who may have purchased the game previously on Xbox 360 via the Xbox Live Arcade, you would have already spotted the game in your Ready to Install section of My Games & Apps.

“We’ll be rolling out more back compat games as they’re made available on Xbox One,” EA said on Twitter. “Stay tuned.” This is great news for EA Access subscribers, and limiting them to EA Access is something I expected EA to do at some point. I’m not mad. The service is fantastic and worth having for the price EA charge for a year’s subscription.  The service is also available on PC under the name Origin Access.
