EA’s monthly game subscription service EA Access is coming to the PlayStation 4 in July. The service originally launched in August 2014 exclusively for the Xbox One, however, there is a similar service called Origin Access which is available on Windows PCs.
EA Access currently provides subscribers with access to over 50 games on the Xbox One, including backwards compatible Xbox 360 games, but its likely the selection will be different for those on Playstation. The Playstation 4 isn’t backwards compatible with games from its older siblings, however, game subscription service Playstation Now is able to make some PS2 and PS3 titles available via online streaming.
“As we continue to invest in digital and subscription services, bringing great games to even more players across more platforms is an exciting opportunity for everyone,” said Matt Bilbey, Executive VP of Strategic Growth. “Our goal is to give players more choice to try and play our games wherever and however they choose, and we’re happy to bring EA Access to PlayStation 4.”
The service is priced at £3.99/$4.99 a month or £19.99/$29.99 a year, and provides a 10% discount on full EA titles, expansions and in-game items.
Edited 9th May – EA confirmed the pricing for UK customers, £3.99 a month/£19.99 a year.
