EA Access Is Finally Coming to PS4 This July, Five Years After It Debuted on Xbox One

EA's own subscription service is heading to PS4.

Sony has announced that EA's subscription service, EA Access, is coming to the PlayStation 4 starting in July. The monthly subscription cost will be $4.99, or you'll be able to pay a lump sum of $29.99 for the whole year.

EA Access is EA's take on the Netflix-style subscription service, but for video games. Players who subscribe to EA Access can play a number of EA developed and EA published games for free, so long as they have an active subscription.

Other benefits to EA Access include Play First Trials where players can play up to 10 hours of most new EA games. There're also 10% discounts for EA Access members to EA games, expansions, and more.

EA Access has already been available on the Xbox One, and an expanded version of the service exists on PC. This is the first time the service has come to the PlayStation, however, and it shows that Sony is getting serious about the video game subscription service business. Microsoft already has its own with Xbox Game Pass, and Sony has its video game streaming and download service, PlayStation Now. The latter now has the option to download and play PS4 games, although all older generation titles are streaming-only.

The library of EA games on Xbox includes titles like Madden 19, Star Wars Battlefront 2, FIFA 18, Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Mass Effect Andromeda, and more. We can probably expect to see a similar line-up for the PS4 when the service launches in July, perhaps with some new additions such as FIFA 19 and A Way Out.

Meanwhile, on PC EA has Origin Access Premier which includes day one access to new EA games titles like Anthem. However, Origin Access Premier is a separate service to EA Access, and that's only available on PC so far.
