EA and Microsoft announce new low-cost Xbox One subscription service

If you like the idea of getting your hands on a selection of titles from EA on the cheap, a new announcement from the games producer and Microsoft will be of interest. A new subscription service, EA Access, costs subscribers $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year, and it provides access to catalog of EA games.

At the moment the service is only available to a limited number of uses as a beta product, but EA promises that it won't be long before it rolls out to all Xbox One owners. EA explains:

"EA Access membership unlocks The Vault, a collection of EA’s biggest games on Xbox One ready for you to download and play.  During the beta, gamers will have unlimited access to four great EA games: FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4, with more titles being added soon. That’s over $100 worth of games for $4.99 a month. You can play these EA favorites as much as you want with the click of a button."

Anyone subscribing to EA Access will save 10 percent on digital content purchases and will also gain access to trial versions of games days before official release.
