Electronic Arts will officially bring its EA Access subscription gaming service to PlayStation 4. Starting July, you’ll be able to sign up for a monthly subscription ($4.99/mo) or an annual subscription ($29.99/year) through the PlayStation Store.
“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, Electronic Arts. “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.”
EA Access works like Netflix, granting access to EA’s digital library of games as long as you subscribe. EA games include Anthem, Apex Legends, FIFA 19, and Battlefield 5. Being an EA Access subscriber also grants a 10% discount on EA digital game purchases and DLC, as well as various in-game bonuses and rewards, such as Madden card packs and Apex Coins. Subscribers can also play new games a few days early through exclusive Play First Trials.
EA Access is currently available for PC (Origin) and Xbox One. It will arrive on PlayStation 4 this July.

This game captured our hearts at E3 2016, and as an office we’ve cried about its cuteness roughly 10,000 times since then. Starting on February 4, if you are an EA Access subscriber you can play up to 10 hours of the game before its release on February 9. Check out the trailer below: Read More
