Got enough game-streaming services yet?
Are you a PlayStation user who’s also interested in games from Electronic Arts such as Mass Effect and Battlefield? We’ve got some great news for you – EA Access is coming to PlayStation 4 starting July 24th. The service has been available on the Xbox One for about five years now.
EA Access allows players to access a massive library of games in EA’s roster. Each player can download and replay a game over and over again as long as they remain subscribed to the service. The games can also be played on any device that the user is logged onto, whether the player is online or offline. Take note that they do have to be online when downloading the game, but outside of that, the games can be played even when not connected to the internet.
In addition to this, EA’s games don’t rotate, unlike one of its strongest competitors, PlayStation Now. PSN offers hundreds of games but in a monthly rotating collection, which means not all games are available all at once. EA Access games, on the other hand, are available at all times for the player’s enjoyment. It also costs a mere $5 a month or $30 a year, which is rather cheap compared to purchasing the actual games themselves or even other rival services.
As a bonus, EA Access grants players early access to new games and demos and even provides a 10% discount for all EA purchases including DLC and Season Passes.
