Unravel and Need for Speed are coming to EA Access

Published: July 7, 2016 9:34 AM /



If you're a subscriber to Electronic Arts' subscription service EA Access on your Xbox One, you know that the service already has a pretty great lineup of games for a pretty reasonable price. Games like Dragon Age: InquisitionBattlefield 4, and the Mass Effect trilogy have already been added to the library of games in the Vault, and more titles are on the way!

Coming as soon as next week are 3 new games that'll be available for play if you're a subscriber.

The first one is the most recent Need for Speed, which is a reboot that put the franchise back on the path Need for Speed Underground started back in 2003. If you're a tuner at heart then you'll feel right at home with the myriad of visual and technical options at your disposal. The second game coming to the service next week is Unravel, the gorgeous-looking physics puzzle-platformer centered around the adventures of the cute ball of yarn.

But this is not all that's planned for EA Access this year. In August you will be able to play a demo of the upcoming Madden 17 game starting on August 18, and you will be able to play the full version of Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 to your heart's content on August 30. If soccer and hockey are more your thing you'll be able to play trial versions of NHL 17 and FIFA 17 on September 8 and September 22, respectively. 

The list of new additions end with a Play First Trial for Battlefield coming to EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access on PC on October 13, ahead of the game's official retail release on October 21. The Origin Access Vault will also be getting Need for Speed!

EA Access is Electronic Arts' premium subscription service that gives you a library of games you can play as long as your subscription is active. This service costs $4.99 per month or $29.99 when you buy a yearly subscription. For more info, you can check the official webpage.

I've been playing games since I was just barely able to walk so I might as well write about them.
