Eventually, the rumors and the various indications leaked in the past few months proved to be well-founded: EA Access, the subscription service of Electronic Arts already available on Xbox One and PC (here with the name Origin Access), is officially coming to PlayStation 4 in the during the month of July.
For Sony users, EA Access will cost € 3.99 per month or €24.99 per year, exactly the same prices as on other platforms. Players will have access to the service vault. to the limited time demos, and to the free tests of the titles before their release. There is however to be taken into account that, of the more than 50 games included in the Vault, not all of them will be usable on PS4 since the Sony console, unlike what happens between Xbox One and Xbox 360, does not present backward compatibility with PS3.
Between recent titles and older publications, you can then get your hands on games like Star Wars Battlefront 2, Burnout Paradise Remastered, Fe, The Sims 4, Battlefield 1, Madden, NBA, and NHL games. Madden NFL 20 is currently the only available advance test, but in the coming months, it is plausible that it could join Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.
With the increasingly rapid diffusion of subscription services in the gaming world, Sony has finally changed its mind regarding the offer of Electronic Arts, to which it had declared in 2014: “It does not provide the kind of value customers expect of PlayStation. We do not believe that asking our users for this specific EA service for 5 dollars more per month represents a positive value for PlayStation owners”. Are you satisfied with this news? Will you try the games included in the EA Access Vault?
