EA Access launches on PlayStation 4 on July 24th, games revealed

EA Access, a subscription service that offers players a number of  EA games and gives advance trials of games has a confirmed launch date of July 24th for PlayStation 4. When it launches it will be priced at £19.99 per year or £3.99 per month, or $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year over in the USA.

Games on the service include:

  • Battlefield V
  • FIFA 19
  • NHL 19
  • NBA Live 19
  • Madden 19
  • Unravel 2
  • A Way Out
  • Burnout Paradise Remastered
  • Fe
  • The Sims 4
  • Mass Effect Andromeda
  • Titanfall 2

That’s not the full list, that has yet to be published, and remember the service will only have PlayStation 4 games as there is no backwards compatibility. If you want to play older EA games then they have started appearing on PlayStation Now. The Xbox version of the service has over fifty games and is the same price as the PS4 version so there’s going to be a kerfuffle if the PS4 library doesn’t have near the same number of titles.

Subscribers will also save 10% off all digital purchases on PlayStation 4, and that includes full games, seasons passes, DLC, and FIFA Ultimate Team content. You will also get ‘early trials’ whereby you can play new EA games for a limited time before launch.

EA Access on PS4 will be a separate account to EA Access on Xbox One, so if you want it on both consoles you will have to pay twice. The service has taken a long time to come to Sony’s console, almost five years, as when it launched Sony refused to include the service saying it “does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect.”

“We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer,” commented Sony at the time. It’s unclear what has changed since then, but Sony has been making moves to be more open, such as opening up select games to include cross-play with Nintendo and Xbox gamers.
