EA Play Subscription Price Increase

EA will be raising the price of its subscription service, EA Play, starting from next month. According to GamesIndustry.biz, it isn't a massive increase, but as we all know, these prices are never coming back down.

EA Play's standard subscription tier is going from the current monthly price of $4.99 / £3.99 up to $5.99 / £5.99. Annually, however, the price increase is much more noticeable. It's jumping from $29.99 / £19.99 per year to $39.99 / £34.99 — which is reminiscent of the PS Plus price hike that was implemented in 2023.

Meanwhile, the more expensive EA Play Pro subscription is increasing from $14.99 / £14.99 to $16.99 / £16.99 per month. Annually, it's another more notable leap, going from $99.99 / £89.99 to $119.99 / £99.99.

All of this is set to come into effect from the 10th May, so you've got a month or so to weigh up your options.

For those who might not know, EA Play gives you access to a back catalogue of previously released EA titles, and is available on PS5 and PS4. Building on that, an EA Play Pro subscription allows access to new EA games at launch, and nets you various in-game rewards as an extra perk.
