The lights are on
EA is working to make it’s EA Access subscription service even more enticing my adding Need for Speed Rivals to The Vault and giving players early access to NHL 15 and FIFA 15. Early last month, EA launched it's EA Access subscription service for Xbox One, and to date subscribers have used it to play over 245,000 hours of Madden NFL 15 before the game released. Next up on the docket, EA will make FIFA 15 and NHL 15 available to play before they're released. NHL 15 will be be available this Thursday, September 4, and EA Access members will get six hours with the game, carry over all their Achievements and progress, and save 10% on the full game if they decide to purchase it.
In addition to FIFA 15 and NHL 15, EA will be adding Need for Speed Rivals to The Vault "the coming weeks," so subscribers will be able to play as much of that game as they want for as long as they want. No word on an exact date yet, but EA promises it will be this month.
Our TakeThis is nice. I'm not a big fan of paying for another subscription, but if EA continues to make this service an enticing deal, then it might be a reasonable addition to my PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold services.
