Need for Speed, Unravel and more join EA Access

A bunch of new titles are joining EA Access over the next few months.

Monthly fee aside, EA’s Xbox One-exclusive subscription program is actually a pretty solid deal. There are a load of top games already on Access, that you can play anytime you like after all.

That roster is about to get a bit bigger too. Shortly, you can expect the inclusion of some more of the publisher’s biggest IPs. If you like Need for Speed, PvsZ, and EA’s sports series’, then you’re going to dig the additions.
