Electronic Arts has confirmed that its EA Access program for the Xbox One will not be locked behind Xbox's Gold subscription paywall. Games that require the service, such as online multiplayer, will still need a Gold subscription, but to be able to get the games themselves, you can still have a Silver membership and get access.
"When it launches, any Xbox One gamer can join EA Access and take advantage of the benefits of membership," EA told IGN. "In order to connect to multiplayer gameplay on the Xbox One platform you will need a subscription to Xbox Gold."
EA Access is EA's attempt at building a PlayStation Plus service, where diehard EA fans can pay $29.99 a year (or $4.99 a month) for access to an EA Vault to download any EA games stored in said vault. And yes, this is for Xbox One owners only. In addition, Access members will also receive early access to digital titles as well as discounts on EA digital games and Season Passes. The Vault will open with FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4. The first games to take advantage of early access include Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA LIVE 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Those interested in signing up for EA Access can do so on their official website.
