Update: Mass Effect: Andromeda is now free through EA Access on Xbox One.
Get ready to explore the Andromeda galaxy if you’re an EA or Origin Access member. The company has announced that Mass Effect: Andromeda will be joining both services soon, along with Dead Space 3 for EA Access on Xbox One. In addition, a few other notable games are receiving play first trials.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is coming to EA and Origin Access sometime between October and December. Though it didn’t exactly receive rave reviews, this will be a great way to experience the game without spending a lot of money because it does still offer a ton of content to play through. The game currently costs $40 from Microsoft if you are not an EA or Origin Access member. Dead Space 3 is making its way to the EA Access Vault on Xbox One between now and December as well, making the entire Dead Space collection available to play through the service. Dead Space 3 is already a backward compatible game.
For those interested in newer and upcoming games, you’ll be happy to hear that Star Wars Battlefront II and Need for Speed: Payback are receiving play first trials, meaning those who subscribe to EA and Origin Access can try out these games before their official releases for a full ten hours of playtime. The Sims 4 is also getting a play first trial only on Xbox One through EA Access.
You can sign up for EA Access here and Origin Access here. Both services cost $4.99 a month or $29.99 for an entire year. Each gives you unlimited access to an extensive catalogue of EA games with more frequently added.
