EA Access Now On PS4, But Many Big Games Missing
Electronic Arts’ EA Access subscription service routinely adds games players can have access to for $4.99 a month. On top of that, subscribers are given trial days of new games a few days before they come out, as well as discounted pricing on new EA titles. The service was introduced fairly early into the Xbox One’s lifespan in August 2014 and has since added a massive roster of games for subscribers. Games like Burnout Paradise Remastered, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Titanfall 2 are all available for players at the touch of a button.
The service eventually made its way to PC through Origin Access and shares mostly the same game vault as its Xbox counterpart, but one particular player base has been left out. Folks who own a PlayStation 4 and want to try out EA Access have been left out thus far. Luckily they don’t have to wait any longer as EA Access released for download on PS4 last week. However, its anticipated arrival carries some important caveats.
Due to certain games in the EA Access Vault that appeared on previous-gen consoles, PS4 players will not have access to them. This includes games like the Mass Effect trilogy, Skate 3, and more. While these omissions are understandable, they are still unfortunate. The PlayStation 4’s lack of backward compatibility is the limitation preventing these games from being compatible. You can check out all the PS4-Only titles from this list on EA’s site.
