EA has today entered a new partnership with Microsoft to launch a new subscription service called EA Access.
What it does is basically allow Xbox One players to access a number of full EA games for a monthly or annual membership. The service is kicking off today for a selected group of beta gamers, shortly after which it will launch globally exclusively for the Xbox One.
“At EA, we are always looking for new ways to make it easier for gamers to play more EA games across all platforms, and we are excited about what EA Access will offer to players on Xbox One,” EA wrote in its announcement blog post.
“EA Access membership unlocks The Vault, a collection of EA’s biggest games on Xbox One ready for you to download and play,”
EA say that users will also save 10 per cent on purchases of EA digital content for the Xbox One, on content downloaded from the Xbox Games Store, and to top it off users will also be able to access trails of new EA games before they release publicly.
Currently the list of games includes FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4, with membership starting at $4.99 a month or $29.99 per year.
[Update] In the UK the subscription is priced at £3.99 monthly or £19.99 annually. Pretty darn cheap.
EA also said that it will be adding more titles to the beta soon, and it will even offer EA Access at US retail stores and at Amazon.com in Europe and Canada.
