EA Access is Coming to PS4 in July
EA Access is finally coming to PS4 nearly five years after first releasing on Xbox One.
Previously only having been available through Xbox One, Electronic Arts announced today that its EA Access subscription program will be coming to the PS4 this summer.
EA Access is set to launch on PS4 at an undetermined date in July and will cost $4.99 per month. Those that are looking to purchase the plan for a whole year can instead pay $29.99. These are the same prices for the service in its current form on Xbox One.
“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,” said EA’s Matt Bilbey of the move.
EA’s decision to bring the EA Access service to PS4 comes nearly five years after the program originally released on Xbox One. Sony stated in the past that it didn’t think the service “represents good value to the PlayStation gamer” that consumers would expect. Since launching though, EA Access’ lineup of games that you can play each month has grown quite a bit, with over fifty titles in total now available for play. Some of these include Star Wars Battlefront II, Battlefield 1, and Titanfall 2 among others.
Honestly, I’m surprised this move took so long to finally happen as this is something I’ve been expecting to occur at nearly any moment for years. If anything, the best part of this news is that it at least makes upcoming launches for EA titles a little less confusing. Just look at how puzzling the launch for Anthem was when taking into account the early play period that EA Access offered for those on Xbox One.
For a more specific release date of when to expect EA Access on PS4, we might hear more next month during EA Play.
