EA Access has found its footing on Xbox One and PC, but until now, PS4 users haven't been able to try the subscription-based service. For the right type of person, it can be a bargain – it's a way to get in, catch up on games, and get out– but the value depends on your personal taste and your schedule.
For $4.99 per month (or $29.99 for a year), EA Access has several benefits, with the major ones being early access to brand-new games, including 10-hour trials, and the vault – a library of full games.
The list of games varies from platform to platform, but on PS4, this is what EA Access entails:
Outside of the Vault, there's also an Anthemtrial, and looking ahead, EA Access will have "Play First" trials for Madden NFL 20(the game launches August 2) and FIFA 20 (it's out September 27). Basically, if you're into EA's annual sports games, you stand to benefit the most. Otherwise, your results will vary.
Personally, I've only subbed once. I used Origin Access Premier to burn through Battlefield V, and then I canceled my plan as the month was wrapping up. From that perspective, it worked great. I paid fifteen bucks to get my fill of a newly-launched game. No complaints there. I'll probably do it again.
Given that Xbox One has tons of Xbox 360 games to play through backward compatibility, that's where I'd lean if I were going to subscribe to EA Access on a console. As is, the PS4 list can't stack up.
