EA announced that EA Access would be coming to PlayStation 4 a while ago but now it's official along with the release window. As it turns out, the subscription service is just around the corner, slated for a July 2019 release window.
PlayStation 4 users will soon be able to subscribe to EA Access for their catalogue of brilliant games like Anthem and Need For Speed: Paycheck. Loot box aficionados will have a chance to live out their wildest dreams starting on 24 July 2019 when EA Access goes live on PS4.
The information comes from EA's own website which has a convenient little countdown so you can keep track of when you can throw your money at Andrew Wilson and his merry band of developer studio exterminators.
For those who can't spare the time to keep going to the site while anticipating another subscription service can sign up for newsletters on the provided link.
Keep in mind this subscription is similar to the basic EA Access on PC so early access to games will be limited but on the bright side, you will have unlimited access to a huge vault of games filled with brilliant gems like Mass Effect: Andromeda.
There will also be a 10 per cent discount for any game purchases while the subscription last which is actually not a bad deal, no sarcasm involved. The subscription itself will cost $5 per month or $30 per year which will allow you to purchase AAA titles at a bit of a discount since 10 off is $6.
While $1 is not much of a saving, you do get access to over 50 games that are not necessarily horrible. For example, Titanfall series features shooters that are criminally underrated.
It is currently unknown why Sony changed their stance and unwalled their garden by letting EA Access in. Whatever the reason may be, we are sure they feel a sense of pride and accomplishment now that the PlayStation libraries will be enriched with surprise mechanics.
