Star Wars: Battlefront 2 has joined the EA Access vault, according to reports.

Many players woke up this morning to find Star Wars: Battlefront 2 included in the EA Access vault on Xbox One. An official announcement has yet to be made, but the game’s Microsoft Store page confirms it’s indeed part of the subscription.

Madden 19 looks like it will be joining the Vault on February 1. Just in time for Super Bowl weekend.

Electronic Arts is bringing its EA Access service to PlayStation 4.

PS4 users will finally be able to subscribe to EA Access in July, Electronic Arts announced today. Like Xbox One, you can sign-up for a monthly or annual subscription.
The service can be purchased through the PlayStation Store for £3.99/$4.99 per month or £19.99/$29.99 annually.

This means you can now get in on Play First Trials of most new EA games which allow you to play 10 hours of the game.

You will also receive a 10% discount on full game purchases, expansions, in-game items and more. Plus, the Battlefield franchise, FIFA, Star Wars Battlefront and more are playable for free through the service.


The arrival of EA Access for PS4 marks a bit of a change of heart from Sony. The company initially rejected the subscription service when EA debuted it back in 2014. According to Sony, EA Access wasn't a good value for gamers at the time. Not much has changed with the service since then, including the price. But EA Access does have a bigger collection of games with five more years worth of titles now playable for free, which is may have been enough for Sony to finally give EA Access the stamp of approval.

It looks like the EA Access Vault’s lineup will soon be bolstered by the arrival of two major games.

Now that EA has made it official EA Access is finally coming to PS4, the company updated the service’s website with a new landing page for PS4.

Though EA Access does not yet have a release date beyond “sometime in July”, EA is already hyping up the subscription service’s arrival with a new trailer.

As spotted by MP1st, the trailer isn’t actually listed on EA’s YouTube channel, meaning it’s intended to go live at some point in the future.


The trailer includes shots of Battlefield 5, and A Way Out – two games that have yet to join the service. The page also lists Battlefield 5, and A Way Out among the service’s “growing library of games.” It’s possible EA is referring to the Play First Trial, which is limited to just ten hours of playtime.

PlayStation 4 players may not be familiar with the concept, so this may be EA’s attempt to let them know Battlefield 5 can technically be played through the service. Indeed, clicking on the Battlefield 5 tile highlights the game’s trial, and even directs users to a Microsoft Store link to subscribe.

EA games typically join the Vault 12 months or less after their release, but it’s interesting EA included Battlefield 5 in this PS4 ad, seeing as the service will be available in July. This could indicate Battlefield 5 will be joining it sooner than expected, though once again, it may just be a reference to the trial.
