EA Access was recently announced for PS4, ending its Xbox One exclusivity. Now, EA has finally confirmed the date its subscription service will come to Sony’s flagship console: July 24.
EA Access costs $30 / £20 / AU $40 for a year or $5 / £4 / AU $40 per month. A subscription grants you access to a vault of free EA titles, such as Titanfall 2, Star Wars: Battlefront II, and FIFA 18. Subscribers also get a 10% discount on all digital EA games, as well as their respective expansions and in-game purchases. Members can also take advantage of EA Access’ Play First Trials, which typically give you 10 hours of early access to new EA titles prior to their official release. Battlefield V also made its way to the EA Access Vault recently.
Sony allowing EA Access on to PS4 represents quite a change in stance. The company blocked EA from launching the service on PlayStation in 2014, saying it had “evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect.” The company has not explained its recent change of heart.
Elsewhere, the free PS Plus games for July 2019 were announced just recently. The PS4 games available at no extra cost for PlayStation Plus members next month will be PES 2019 and Horizon Chase Turbo.
