Electronic Arts announced plans to bring EA Access over to PlayStation 4 starting this July. The option to purchase EA Access will be separate from Sony’s service, PlayStation Plus, which costs $59.99 per year. For EA Access, gamers are looking at $4.99 or $29.99 per year in exchange for some unique benefits.
EA Access Announced for PlayStation 4
The news that EA Access will be available for PlayStation 4 users this July is exciting, as the service has previously been available for Xbox One users from 2014 onward. Not only will purchasing an EA Access subscription give gamers access to select EA “Vault” titles, it’ll also give gamers access to special features such as Play First Trials.
Through Play First Trials, gamers have the ability to play extended demos of new EA titles for free. It’s akin to a “try before you buy” perk, and can be a great way to see if new games like Anthem are right for you before dropping $59.99 on them. Other benefits to EA Access include 10% off on EA games and DLC.
As of right now, it’s unclear which games will be included as part of EA Access on PlayStation 4, though you can browse through the games offered on Xbox in the meantime.
