The title is not the first in the series to join the EA Access Vault: FIFA 14, FIFA 15, and 16 are also available for those who subscribe. We enjoyed the latest in the franchise when it launched in September 2016–critic Nathan Ditum awarded it a 9/10. Read his thoughts in our full FIFA 17 review.
In addition to free games, EA/Origin Access members can play some games (but not all) ahead of launch; most of the time, subscribers get a five-day headstart. Another benefit is that subscribers save 10% on all EA digital content, which knocks down the price of a $ 60 game to $ 54. The service costs $ 5/month or $ 30/year.
No version of EA Access is available on PlayStation 4. According to Sony, the service does not offer the kind of value PlayStation fans have come to expect. That being said, Sony maintains that it is open to having a dialogue with EA about how it might be able to bring EA Access to PS4 someday.
