Last week, EA announced adding two games to their Access program of free games for Xbox One. Those were Battlefield 3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, both of which were just recently added to the Xbox backwards compatibility program.
Electronic Arts also confirmed four more games that will be arriving to EA Access:
- Dead Space Ignition
- Madden NFL 17
- Skate 3
- Zuma’s Revenge
EA did not get any detail for the time these titles will be released, just a vague statement of “later this year”. There was also no word on whether these games were coming to Origin Access (PC version of Access). For obvious reasons, none of these games are available for PlayStation users. Yet again, Skate 3 and Dead Space Ignition are already part of the backwards compatible program. Why EA is giving access to games players can already get via their consoles, I do not understand.
However, EA Access is giving its members the ability to play Mass Effect: Andromeda five days ahead of time, for a 10 hour trial period.
With Access you get free games, play some games ahead of launch, and get a 10% discount on EA games. It only brings your price down $4, but it’s money. A month will cost you $4.99 and a year will cost you $29.99. Go to EA’s Access website if you are interested.
