Starts with four titles, but can go only go up.
Announced as beta program last month, EA Access has now graduated to full access for all Xbox One owners, provided they elect to pay the $4.99 a month fee.
Today, that monthly fee will net players download access to four titles, including 'Battlefield 4,' 'FIFA 14,' 'Madden NFL 25,' and 'Peggle 2.' It also will get players a 10% off discount for digital purchases of upcoming titles like 'Madden NFL 15,' and 'Dragon Age: Inquisition' as well as DLC items like FIFA Ultimate Team purchases or 'Battlefiled' map packs. And of course, the thorniest perk of the service, EA Access members get a five day lead (early access) to upcoming EA Xbox One titles such as 'Madden NFL 15,' 'NHL 15,' 'FIFA 15,' and 'NBA Live 15.'
One important aspect announced today involves the title selection of The Vault. EA has stated that titles in the Vault, like the initial four, 'Battlefield 4,' 'FIFA 14,' 'Madden NFL 25,' and 'Peggle 2' will always be part of the service, and will never be retired. Even if a game like 'Madden NFL 15,' is added, 'Madden NFL 25' will still be part of the service.
