• EA Access Coming to PS4 This July

    Nearly five years after launching, EA Access will be coming to the PlayStation 4 this July. The service allows users to play up to ten hours of most newly launched EA titles, play from a growing library of EA games in The Vault, and discounts on most EA-related digital purchases.

    The service will cost $4.99 per month or $29.99 a year, the same as it does for Xbox One. Existing accounts/subscriptions on Xbox One will not carry over to PlayStation 4, so users will need a separate account per console.

    EA Access launched on August 11, 2014 exclusively on. Xbox One. At the time, Sony balked at the potential of offering the service, claiming it did "not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect" in "asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer."

    Upcoming EA titles in 2019 expected to be part of EA Access include FIFA 20, Madden NFL 20, NBA LIVE 20, NHL 20, Sea of Solitude, a new Need for Speed, a new Plants vs. Zombies, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
