Question 01

How much does EA Access cost? and how long does my membership last?

An EA Access membership is just $4.99 a month - buy one new EA game, and your membership pays for itself with your 10% discount. Or you can save even more when you sign up for a full year for $29.99.

Question 02

How long can you play EA Access games?

As long as you're a member! You can play every game in our massive collection as much as you want, whenever you want provided your membership stays current. Plus, games don't rotate out of the collection (outside extreme circumstances like a title's servers being shut down), so you can be sure they'll be here whenever you want to play them.

Question 03

How can I pay for EA Access?

You can use either a credit/debit card or a Paypal account to pay for EA Access. Payment is handled through the Xbox billing system, so the payment method you want to use will have to be attached to your Xbox account. Payment will be automatically renewed every month or year depending on what membership duration you choose.

Question 04

Do I have to be connected to the internet to use EA Access?

You'll need to be online to play our Play First Trials, download games from the collection or use online features like multiplayer. Otherwise, you can disconnect and play offline content as much as you want.

We've always got something in the works behind the scenes, and we'll do our best to let you know what's coming up as soon as we can! Check out the EA Access console app, the News section of our site or Twitter and Facebook for the latest info on what's coming next.

Question 07

How do I cancel my EA Access membership? What happens if I cancel?

We’ll be sad to see you go, but we won’t make it harder than it has to be. You can end your membership anytime by visiting account.xbox.com, selecting "Subscriptions", and canceling from there.

If you cancel, you'll lose all EA Access benefits once your current billing cycle ends, including access to trials and the games in our collection. You'll retain all your save files so you can pick up where you left off if you decide to join again.

Question 08

Is EA Access worth it?

We think so! For the cost of a fancy coffee per month or a couple of large pizzas per year you get dozens of games, exclusive early access to new titles and savings on other great EA content. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal. Why not try it out and see what you think?
