Microsoft is once again shining a spotlight on how its Xbox One entertainment console differs from the PlayStation 4. EA Access isn’t available anywhere else but Windows PCs and the Xbox One. The company is capitalizing on that by giving every Xbox Live Gold user unlimited access to the service for one week only.
Electronic Arts revealed a week of free EA Access last week on its EA Access blog. EA Access Free Days, as the company calls it, kicks off on January 19th and lasts until January 24th. An EA Access subscription lets users download digital games from the company’s Vault for $29.99 a month or $4.99 a year. Games available to download in The Vault include Madden 25, Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age Inquisition, EA UFC, Peggle 2, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare and NBA Live 15.
An EA Access subscription normally includes 10% off digital games purchased through the Xbox Store and early trials of forthcoming Electronics Arts titles. Those extras won’t be unlocked during the EA Access Free Days promotion. Xbox Live Gold is $9.99 a month, $24.99 for three months and $59.99 for a year.
