EA Access to Add Need for Speed: Rivals Soon
EA has announced that it will soon be adding Need for Speed: Rivals to the “Vault” of its EA Access program.
The game was released last year and will now be the latest addition to the growing library of games of EA Access, which already includes the likes of Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Peggle 2 and Madden NFL 25.
For a subscription cost of $30 a year, or $5 a month, members can gain access to the full games in the vault any time they please. Think of it as their own private games collection for a measly fee.
EA has also confirmed that the early access period for NHL 15 will begin on Thursday this week, ahead of the game’s official release on September 9. Additionally FIFA 15 will get an early access period as well, five days prior to its release on September 24.
Similar to Madden NFL 15, the early access periods for the two above mentioned titles will be restricted to just six hours of game time. While this was a subject of debate among subscribers who wanted to get unlimited game time during the early access period instead, EA has held its ground over the matter.
EA has promised to offer EA Access to 19 more locations later this month, including the Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Brazil, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
EA Access is currently only available on the Xbox One. Sony has not been too eager to bring the program over to the PlayStation platform, since the company believes they are already providing a much better game value program to its consumers.
