As the FIFA world cup is still ongoing in Russia, EA Access subscribers may have noticed that FIFA 18 has yet to be added to the EA Access Vault. Last year, FIFA 17 joined the catalogue back in April 2017, though it’s not really surprising to see EA wanting to capitalize on the ongoing competition to boost FIFA 18 sales.
EA Access members can already play a free 10-hours trial of FIFA 18, but the popular soccer game along with four other titles will finally join the Vault in the next three months, EA announced yesterday. The other incoming games are The Sims 4, Burnout Paradise Remastered, the indie game Fe, as well as the Xbox 360 game Dante’s Inferno, which as a result should soon become backward-compatible on the Xbox One.

In addition to these new EA Access games, the publisher also teased upcoming Play First trials for Madden NFL 19 (August 2), NBA Live 19 (August 31), NHL 19 (September 6) and FIFA 19 (September 20). A new EA Access website is also coming soon, with support for remote game installs from the Microsoft Store. EA Access is just $4.99 per month or $29.99 a year, and it’s a great complement to Microsoft’s Xbox Games Pass service.
