EA’s subscription service known as EA Access on consoles and Origin Access on PC will be heading to PS4 later this July.
The subscription service is a controversial one as it is known for giving out “early” release dates to players subscribes to the service which in reality means a delayed release dates for people who actually buy their games.
Controversial release strategies aside, the service is a steal for those who don’t play their games for an extended amount of time, but enjoy playing a bit of many of EA’s titles.
On PS4 the service will cost users either $4.99 or $29.99 a year. The service includes unlimited access to EA’s vault of games as well as 10% off EA game purchases and the aforementioned early releases of upcoming EA titles.
The service was previously deemed unworthy of PlayStation by Sony who said that it wasn’t, “good value to the PlayStation gamer.”
It’s currently unknown if the PS4 version of EA Access will includes as many of EA’s older games as the Xbox version of the service due to the PS4’s lack of backwards compatibility.
If you’re currently an EA/Origin Access subscriber on PC or Xbox One you’ll need to purchase a separate subscription for PS4. You can sign up for an alert when EA Access goes live for PS4 on EA’s website.
