EA has revealed their version of a subscription gaming service for Microsoft’s Xbox One, giving unlimited access to games like FIFA 14 and Battlefield 4.

When you think of Netflix, you probably think of a small monthly fee, loads of movies and TV shows to choose from, all from different studios. Well, EA have announced their own gaming version of the service, called EA Access, but you’ll only be able to play EA games, of course.

EA Access will only be available on Xbox One, and it will require a monthly, or yearly, subscription fee of $4.99 or $29.99 respectively. The program has been delivered to a limited number of players participating in the beta, but will launch for everyone else ‘soon’, says EA.

So what does your subscription get you? It gains you access to ‘The Vault’, a selection of EA games that you can download and play right away, as much as you want, for as long as you are subscribed. Currently during the beta players can access FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 ad Battlefield 4, with more being added soon.

Additionally, members will receive 10% discount on EA digital downloads for Xbox One through the Games Store, including all new titles like Dragon Age: Inquistion and NHL 15.

Membership also gives you access to trials of games up to five days before non-members, starting with Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA LIVE 15 and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
