Electronic Arts’ subscription service is going to grow by two notable games — the EA Access Moonlighter and Frostpunk debut will be coming in the near future. EA is constantly working on expanding their paid subscription service that gives players access to games at no extra cost and now two excellent games from 11 bit studios are going to be available as a part of this program.
“With 70 games a day coming to the PC platform, it’s really hard to stand out,” says 11 bit studios’ Piotr Bajraszewski as reported by GamesIndustry.biz. “You really need to deliver the highest premium indie quality to sell the game. And that’s a problem for indie developers.”
“First step is to make a brilliant game, but then the problem is that there are games out there that would have been huge hits five or six years ago, and now they’re selling 10,000 copies,” he continued. “That’s why you need to partner with big companies like EA, and try things like subscriptions. People are scared about this. They’re scared about depreciating their game. But it’s a different crowd.”
If you haven’t played these two games before, you’re missing out. Moonlighter tells the fantastic tale of a shopkeeper who ventures into dungeons to acquire the stock for his shop and uncover a grand mystery. Frostpunk, meanwhile, has players taking command of an entire steampunk city that is trying desperately to survive a new ice age that suddenly swept the earth.
These aren’t the only new games coming to EA Access in the near future; Electronic Arts recently announced three new EA Originals titles, all of which will be making their way onto their subscription service. The EA Access Moonlighter and Frostpunk debut will bring a couple of great games to new players everywhere. Console gamers who subscribe to EA Access may well be able to check out the upcoming console edition of Frostpunk. We don’t know exactly when these two games will be debuting on EA Access — hopefully, the wait won’t be too long!
