EA Access Coming To PS4 On July 24

We got word back in May that EA's game subscription service, EA Access, would be coming to PlayStation 4 sometime in July.

The publisher previously set a July window for launch, but has now confirmed the date. If you're not familiar with EA Access, it is a subscription service similar to that of Xbox Game Pass, except it is exclusive to EA games.

EA Access for PlayStation 4 will be available for $30 a year or for $5 a month. We're talking your Star Wars: Battlefront games, your Titanfalls, your Mass Effect: Andromedas, your FIFAs; they're all in there, and should you wish to buy something newer, EA Access grants you a 10% discount right off the bat.

The video games subscription service includes exclusive early trials of Electronic Arts games before launch day, a 10 percent discount on digital Electronic Arts game and downloadable content purchases, and instant access to a growing library of Electronic Arts games including Battlefield V, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Madden NFL 19, Unravel 2, A Way Out, Burnout Paradise Remastered, and more. Its launch on the PS4 comes almost 5 years after its launch on the Xbox One because Sony initially declined to participate in the subscription service.

For a fee of just £3.99 or £19.99, EA Access offers streaming to a range of over 50 EA titles.

Earlier this year it was revealed that EA Access was coming to PS4, and now an official release date has been given.

EA Access offers two different subscription options. As long as a user maintains an active subscription, they can play vault games as long as they like.

The PS4 has been the biggest selling console of this generation, with Sony's PlayStation 4 closing in on the 100million units sold marker. A countdown to when the service goes live is available on EA's website.
