Microsoft has announced that the EA Access subscription service will be available for free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers from 12 June until 22 June.
In case you missed it, EA Access delivers a library of the publisher’s games to Xbox One users for $5 a month or $30 a year.
The 20-strong library includes NBA Live 16, Titanfall, Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, FIFA 16, NHL 16, Madden NFL 16, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Battlefield 4 and Battlefield: Hardline.
The publisher is also bringing selected backwards-compatible Xbox 360 titles to the service, starting with Plants vs. Zombies and Dead Space.
What else does it offer?
Other perks include 10% off EA content on Xbox One and the ability to try out selected EA titles (such as Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst) five days before release – albeit with a time limit imposed. Progress in these games carries over to the full version, however.
Microsoft’s Major Nelson noted that EA Access users would also be the first to try out Battlefield 1, Mass Effect: Andromeda, FIFA 17 and other titles by the publisher.
The free week coincides with the start of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), where EA, along with Microsoft, Sony and others, will show off their eagerly anticipated wares.
EA is expected to show off the latest Battlefield, Mass Effect and FIFA games, along with Titanfall 2 and projects related to Star Wars.
