Can’t see it posted, fairly new addition within the last few days after googling it, came up on my Xbox as I checked the EA Access app, I normally find out about new additions on here! Sorry if posted, the search tool is not exactly always accurate!

Just found it, posted under misc, always thought they were posted as a deal where it gets more exposure. Did think it was strange it wasn’t posted, ah well mods can do what they want with it. If it helps someone then cool

I can’t see anywhere that says it’s free?

You have to pay for EA Access, but if, like me, you have it and don’t frequently check these heads ups are really handy.

thanks op

Of course, you are right! The OP didn't say it was free though.

Not free, unsure why it’s come under freebies potentially unless it was moved. Posted as a deal as far as I was aware. Just posted as a heads up it’s in the vault. As we all know EA Access is a paid for service so sorry if this is misleading as that was not my intention.
Got the original game disc. Good to see it’s now BC!
Loved this game on PS2, still have it & some day I'll give it another run thorough. Seem to remember some big gaps between save points especially in the forest part.

Worried it'll be a bit pants now though (like Medal of Honor & Blake's 7!).

no and you have sony to thank for that as they had first choice and said it was not good value for gamers
Such a good game. Played it on the 360 not so long ago and it still stands up. Wish they would retool it for one/one X. Its all about the guns!

Why wouldn't people just have both console four years in to this generation?

You can get both the S and the Slim for less combined now than what one of the original machines would have cost you in the first year they were out.

Technically it's a paid for service of course but seeing you can regularly pick a year's sub up for 15 quid I'd just put it out there that less than 30 pence a week might as well count as free, it's really that cheap.

Yeah - actually for once the original poster of a thing like this, did not claim that it was free, because it sure as hell is not. So I guess the "attacker" was just phoning it in, thinking "another wrongly claimed free game" and decided to attack, which he, under normal circumstances, of course would be right to do. Kudos to the original poster for NOT claiming this as free.

I don't really consider this as deal though.

Not as much as we all wish that the pointless empty lines in your reply were not there
I remember this game was revolutionary on PS2 for destructability
I remember spending the entirety of the game shooting out glass windows and doors

It's been backwards compatible for a few months now (since October 24th) if you have the original game disc. But it's good to see original Xbox games being added to EA Access - now people who missed out on it back in the day can play it.

I don't remember it being revolutionary in terms of destructibility - Red Faction was revolutionary in terms of destructibility, and that was 5 years before Black.
But I do remember it having great graphics - they really managed to squeeze the last bit of power out of the PS2 when it was mere months away from being superseded by the PS3.
Too racist for me
On a slightly unrelated subject but still concerning this game,

I bought Black back in the day for the PS2 and it was an amazing game for it's time, and to be honest it's still a great game. The playthrough time is much longer than your equivalent COD single player alternative and the quality still holds up today.

So, to avoid paying EA for effective rental of some of these old games I invested £40, and bought an old Fat PS2 from mu local Facebook selling pages for £10, then bought a PS2 network adaptor off ebay for £15 then 320gb 3.5 SATA drive from Amazon for £15.

Not that I condone doing it (cough cough) but if you know where to look you can get Black as well as all the other best PS2 titles as ISO images online. I put this plus another 80 odd games on the HD and it boots quickly and plays perfectly. I didnt need to find my copy as I already owned it but the DVD drives in PS2's wont last forever, and mine was starting to give read errors.

Imho better than the £3.99 monthly fee as I'm not a massive fan of subscription models.

just saying "No" would cost you less effort tbh.


I don't know the answer. But googling it would cost you less effort rather than waiting for someone to answer....tbh.

Finding the answer out for myself rather than waiting for someone else to answer it for me? Damn my generation! 😝

Cool story fam, but EA Access is less than 20bones for the year, enjoy that composite PS2 gameplay
Sorry to be dumb, but how do you actually download the game. I have EA access/account. When I looked via Xbox One couldn’t find the game. So how do I get it onto my Xbox?
