It has been heavily rumored for a while now and we knew it was coming eventually. Today, EA announced that they are bringing EA Access to the PlayStation 4 system. The service will arrive this July, players can sign-up for a monthly subscription of $4.99 a month or a yearly subscription of $29.99 through the PlayStation Store. With the addition of coming to the Sony’s console, this means EA offers its subscription services on more platforms than any other publisher as EA Access is on Xbox One and Origin as Origin Access.
Here is what EA had to say about it:
“As we continue to invest in digital and subscription services, bringing great games to even more players across more platforms is an exciting opportunity for everyone,” said Matt Bilbey, Executive VP of Strategic Growth. “Our goal is to give players more choice to try and play our games wherever and however they choose, and we’re happy to bring EA Access to PlayStation 4.”
There wasn’t an exact date of when EA Access will drop on PlayStation 4 besides the fact it will be in July. Originally the service from Electronic Arts was offered to both Xbox and PlayStation, but Sony had turned it down when it was first pitched to them.
Sony’s State of Play will be airing this week on May 9th and we could possibly see something about EA Access during the 10 minute presentation.
