NHL 15 snap shots its way into the Vault



EA Sport’s hard-hitting hockey game NHL 15 is the latest title to join the EA Access Vault. Currently the program is only available to Xbox One owners and with the number of free to play titles now up to 10 the Vault is really starting to look value for money.

At £3.99 per month or a full year at £19.99 the EA Access Vault not only gives you some great titles to play for free but also delivers discounts and early access to some of the newer titles to joins EA’s portfolio, the recent one being Battlefield Hardline.

So are you tempted yet…?


Madden 15 is locked and loaded into EA Access’ Vault

Madden 15 is the latest title to join the EA Access Vault. Currently the program is only available to Xbox One owners but will the latest edition to the Vault convince you to subscribe? At £3.99 per month or a full year at £19.99 and NBA Live 15 recently joining the program I must admit to being sorely tempted in joining!

Play Battlefield Hardline early with EA Access


If you happen to be an EA Access member then you are in for a treat as the Battlefield Hardline trial is arriving on March 12th.

Members will be able to jump into the game for a full 10 hours, playing both single-player and multiplayer before the games official release date on March 17th. The trial will let you play the prologue and first chapter of the single player and all the multiplayer maps and game modes, allowing you to experience content never seen before. However unlike the beta, all progress you make will carry over when the live release hits.

EA Access is the exclusive subscription service where you receive discounts on EA games, but also have access to the vault, a selection of the best EA games that are free to play and download.

Battlefield Hardline is available now to buy and pre-download, and will be officially released on March 17th.

NBA Live 15 to join EA Access free to play list


If we can believe the image that was seen on the Xbox website it looks like the next title to join the EA Access free to play list will be NBA Live 15.  This will be the first update to the EA games vault since the end of last year when Need for Speed Rivals was added and will bring the total number of free to play titles up to 8 joining the likes of Battlefield 4, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Peggle 2, Madden NFL 25 and FIFA 14.

Even though we are still awaiting the new addition to be officially announced by EA I’m guessing it wont be long now and with EA promising to add futher titles in the future we can only hope this is the start of a good year for EA Access users.

Battlefield 4 Second Assault DLC free for EA Access subscribers

Battlefield Hardline Coming To EA Access Early

The official Battlefield Twitter account has shed some tasty new detail regarding Visceral’s Battlefield Hardline which is launching in just a few months time.

If you’re desperate to get your hands on the upcoming cops and robbers multiplayer shooter, now is a fantastic time to join the EA Access subscription service as it’ll be available to download digitally a few days before it’s official, physical launch.

Not a bad perk to the service and if you’re buying it digitally, you should be able to get a further 10% discount with this program — if past EA titles are anything to go by.


The Vault gets a new contender with EA Sports UFC


EA’s The Vault is about to get a heavy dose of MMA action. Coming December 18, EA Access members will be able to nab themselves a free copy of EA Sports UFC, which becomes the seventh title to join the ranks of The Vault.

Even with early access to trials of new releases and 10% off EA digital purchases I’m still yet to make the move over to the program. Don’t get me wrong it’s a fantastic idea, I just own the vast majority of titles that are currently part of the membership.

Early Access to Dragon Age: Inquisition on EA Access

Subscribers to EA Access will be pleased to hear that they will be able to grab hold of Dragon Age: Inquisition five days before anyone else.

EA revealed the details in a blog post that anyone with an EA Access subscription will be able to play the game November 13, five days before the November 18 launch. It hasn’t been confirmed whether this is worldwide.

You’ll get a six hour trial that will give you access to both the single player and the co-op multiplayer portions. All progress will carry over to the full game if you buy it. You’ll also bag 10% off if you buy the games digital version.

Need for Speed Rivals joins EA Access

If you have signed up for EA Access then you’ll be pleased to hear that Need for Speed Rivals is heading to the Vault.

As well as that you’ll be getting your hands on NHL 15 this week for a 6 hour trial and FIFA 15 in the coming weeks.

Later this month, EA Access will be rolling out to 19 additional locations including Brazil, Netherlands, UAE and Nordic countries.

So far EA Access is proving to be pretty good, I’m still playing through my Madden trail and NFS Rivals will also be a welcome addition. Have you subscribed? What do you think? Let us know below.
