EA’s subscription service, EA Access, is now available on the PS4. The launch comes nearly five years after its debut on the Xbox. The service on the PS4 does come with one difference, mainly having to do with those who like classics from the previous console generation. Here is what we know on EA Access for the PS4:
32 Titles Are Missing
The service is now available on the PS4 but there is one major difference with the Xbox One. The service on the PS4 is missing 32 titles, most which were released during the PS3 and Xbox 360 days. Here is the full list of the games that are missing:
- Zuma Deluxe
- Zuma’s Revenge!
- Skate 3
- Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3
- Mirror’s Edge
- Plants vs. Zombies
- Medal of Honor: Airborne
- Dead Space, Dead Space 2, Dead Space 3 and Dead Space Ignition
- Dragon Age 2 and Dragon Age: Origins
- Heavy Weapon
- Feeding Frenzy
- Feeding Frenzy 2
- Dante’s Inferno
- Fight Night Champion
- Alice: Madness Returns
- Battlefield 3, Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company and Battlefield: Bad Company 2
- Bejeweled 2 Deluxe and Bejeweled 3
- Army of Two
That is a lot of good video games but the fact that the service left out 32 titles is no surprise. On the Xbox One, the service offers a number of backwards compatible titles as well as some Xbox exclusives. The PS4 does not have backwards compatibility, which meant that the service would probably skip on those titles when it launched.
The PS4 lineup is still quite good, offering several titles from EA. 44 games are currently available for the service, which offers plenty of other perks.
Subscription, Perks and More
EA Access offers plenty of perks for those who are members. One of the best parts is the vault, which has a selection of games that members can try out. The lineup is much larger on the Xbox One due to the things explained above but the PS4 side does offer many of the recent and most popular titles from the company.
Outside of the different lineups, the services remain just about the same. EA Access offers something known as Play First Trials, which allow the member to play a game for up to ten hours. This is great for those who want to make sure that the title they want to purchase is worth the money.
The service also provides a ten percent discount for those who play game modes such as FIFA Ultimate Team, where microtransactions are available. The ten percent discount is applied to the purchase of packs and even Apex Coins, which are used to buy cosmetics on battle royale game Apex Legends.
Now Available On PS4
EA Access has launched on the PS4 at a price of $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. The price is the same as the one offered for the Xbox side, where the service has been available since its debut.
Back in February, it was rumored that the service would be coming to the PS4 or Switch. EA has not confirmed if Access will come to the Switch in the near future but those who work on FIFA games have mentioned that working with the platform is difficult due to its limitations.
