EA Access Brings You More to Love This September

Last month we introduced EA Access, a new program that makes it easier for Xbox One gamers to get their hands on great EA games, and we want to take a moment to thank all of our members. We were incredibly excited to see so many gamers jump in to the recent Madden NFL 15 trial. Together, EA Access members put in a total of 245,000 total hours playing Madden NFL 15 before the game was even released.
 
This month, we’re excited to announce that we're making EA Access even better.
 
Available Soon in More Countries 
Later this month, EA Access will be rolling out to 19 additional locations. Gamers in countries including Brazil, Netherlands, UAE and Nordic countries will be able to become members and enjoy unlimited time in The Vault.
 
For a full list of countries where EA Access will be launching in September, click here.
 
Need for Speed Rivals Goes in The Vault
To welcome our new members, we will be adding Need for Speed Rivals to The Vault in the coming weeks. Need for Speed Rivals will join Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Peggle 2, and Madden NFL 25 in The Vault as games you can play any time you want for as long as you want. Rivals lets you play as either cop or racer, and introduces the all-new AllDrive social system to blend the line between singleplayer and multiplayer.
 
Details on Upcoming Trials
September will also bring you two awesome opportunities to play new games early. EA Access trials for NHL 15 and FIFA 15 will be going live this month and we want to give you the details on what to expect. All EA Access members will get six hours with each game, and as always, you will be able to play each game five days before the release date. 
 
NHL 15 will be coming to you this Thursday, so get ready to take the ice! Explore all of the modes and features and catch up with player ratings.
 
You can spend your time in FIFA 15 and NHL 15 however you like. If you decide to buy either of them, your Achievements and progress will carry over, and you’ll save 10% with your membership.

      Because it is access to the full game, and transfers over the save data when you pick the game back up on release. 6 hours is a lot of play time for having full access to the game.

    Excellent. Looking forward to NHL '15 and can't wait to try out Need For Speed Rivals. I love EA Access. I figured I'd save more than $30 a year on the 10% discounts alone. The early access and Vault are just icing on the cake. Keep up the good work.

    wait.. does the 6 hour limit still apply to those of us who have the FUT season pass which would usually allow us the game unlimited 5 days early...?

      Grow up dude. EA Access gives you access to free games and pre release trials. If FIFA is your thing then FIFA 14 is free to play for as long as you want, but you'd rather have a sook because they are only giving you a 6 hour FULL ACCESS demo of a game that's not even released yet. PSN gives you one hour of play with it's subscription and that is for games that have already been released.

    Why is everyone hating on 6 hour demos? This 6 hour time limit only applies to the early demos of games not the vault titles. Vault titles are unlimited play for the duration of your EA success subscription. I've been playing Madden 15 every night I get home from work for the past few nights. I've set up my ultimate team, popped achievements, set auctions online, traded team jerseys and defense for my teams jerseys etc. This 6 hour demo is actually the full game on a 6 hour time limit.

    Ok I guess my math is wrong. EA says it's 5 days early. The game releases on the 9th, early access is available on the 5th. That's 4 ******* days. I might just say screw it and quit playing their games all together.

    6 hours is a disgrace, it was unlimited the last couple of years and I like how you deleted my comment I put on here earlier stating this.
