EA Sports UFC Is The Next Free Game On EA Access

Attempting to keep pace with PlayStation Plus and Microsoft’s Games With Gold services, Electronic Arts continues to add titles to its EA Access game subscription service. The latest title in the lineup is EA Sports UFC, the first entry in the UFC franchise since EA acquired it from THQ in 2012.

The inclusion of EA Sports UFC on December 18 will bring the total count of games free with EA Access to seven, joining including titles like Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. Unlike Sony and Microsoft’s offerings, EA’s service never removes games from its collection, meaning that no matter when you subscribe, you’ll have access to the same games enjoyed by longtime members.

EA Access is currently only available on Xbox One at $5 per month or $30 per year. Along with the host of free games, subscribers get to play EA games five days before their general release and a 10-percent discount on digital content by EA.

Our Take
For many gamers, the viability of EA Access will depend on the publisher continuing to add new games to its fledgling library. UFC may not be a big draw for most subscribers, but it's still another free game, and shows a continued dedication on EA's part to improve the service.
