EA's Netflix for Gaming Arrives As Xbox Beta

The “Netflix for gaming” has arrived to a beta group of Xbox One gamers to enjoy unlimited access to select games

What is being described as the “Netflix for gaming” by various news websites has arrived to a beta group of Xbox One gamers.

EA has announced a partnership with Microsoft to offer EA Access, a membership based service providing various perks and unlimited access to full EA games in “The Vault." Xbox One gamers selected to access The Vault during beta found the option to download four EA titles: FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4.

In addition to downloading and playing full games from the developer company, EA Access offers the opportunity to play previews to upcoming titles and purchase extra content for existing EA titles at a 10 percent discount. 

The EA Access membership plans include a $4.99 monthly fee or $29.99 payment for the entire year, which gamers can pay though Xbox LIVE or at retailers such as GameStop and Amazon.

There is no date for when EA Access will be open to all Xbox One users, but the developer company wrote the service will be coming soon
