As expected, EA has added two new titles to the EA Access Vault today. Following up on the upcoming changes announced just a few days ago, Unravel and Need for Speed are both available for all EA Access subscribers on Xbox One to play for free as of today.
Unravel is a puzzle platform game that follows the protagonist Yarny through adventures of epic proportions, at least for such a little guy made of yarn. Players use the thread as a means of lassoing, climbing, and swinging across obstacles as they search for better understanding of the overall picture. Without any words, the story develops as it ties together long forgotten memories through Yarny’s discoveries. Unravel is truly a beautifully landscaped journey that touches the player’s heart through deep ambiance and soulful discovery.
On the opposite side of the coin, however, Need for Speed: Deluxe Edition is a fast paced racing game that drops you straight into the thick of Ventura Bay:
Ready to own the streets? Get behind the wheel of iconic cars and floor it through Ventura Bay, a sprawling urban playground. Explore overlapping stories as you build your reputation – and your dream car – and become the ultimate racing icon. Play again and again because this time, you have 5 distinct ways to win.
