After much speculation and whole lotta rumours (some of them originating all the way back in 2017), EA has finally confirmed that its subscription service, EA Access, is coming to PlayStation 4. Previously, Sony had seemed dismissive of the service, essentially saying that it was poor value for money in 2014, not too long after the PS4 had launched. Of course, here in 2019, things have clearly changed.
So what's the deal? Well, the pricing is the same as it is on Xbox. You're looking at £3.99/$4.99 for a one month subscription, or £19.99/$29.99 for a full year. For those our of the loop, EA Access gives subscribers discounts on new EA releases, early access to upcoming titles, and full access to a large back catalogue of EA games.
It's worth noting that if you have an EA Access account on Xbox already, you won't be able to use that on PS4. In other words, your subscription won't carry over between the two consoles. A bit rubbish, but that's how it goes.
EA Access will launch this July on PS4, and we're sure to hear more about it over the coming weeks.
