Found 14th Jan 2016
Did you get a shiny new Xbox One this holiday? Or maybe you’ve already got one, but are itching for something new to play. Either way, EA Access has you covered. With EA Access, you get a lot of games for a little bit of money, and you're about to get a taste of what members can always enjoy in The Vault with EA Access Free Play Days*.

From January 19 – 24, all Xbox Live Gold members can play every game in the EA Access Vault, all for free. Take the streets with your crew in Battlefield Hardline. Feel the game in FIFA 15. Drive it like you stole it in Need For Speed™ Rivals. Lead the Inquisition in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Defend Crazy Dave’s tacos in Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare with your friends, and put your skills to the test in EA SPORTS™ UFC® career mode.

All of these games -- and more! -- in The Vault are yours to play, totally free. Just launch the EA Access Hub app, and play as much as you want until January 24.

Of course, this is just a taste of what EA Access has to offer. In addition to the growing collection of games in The Vault, members also get to play new EA games before they're released for a limited time, and enjoy a 10% discount on all EA digital purchases on Xbox One. And it's all just $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year.

If you love what you play during EA Access Free Play Days, sign up for EA Access and keep on gaming.

Major Nelson has just recently Tweeted this. I assumed it could be a US thing only, but after a long (3 minute) search, I found it on the page above, which is the EA (GB) link.
Thanks buzz, got a 12 month code but haven't redeemed yet. This'll be good for a little SW blast
Will 5 days be added on if you already have a current subscription for this do you think?
wonder when they'll announce a new addition to the vault?
Thanks a lot mate as I would like to try Inquisition.

There is only NHL 16, Fifa 16, Madden 16, NBA Live 16, Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, Need for Speed (doubtful) & Star Wars: Battlefront (highly doubtful) that can now enter the vault.

FIFA 16 was added in May of last year, so I think it could be a long wait until the next addition. Of course, that's my theory. I'm wrong 97% of the time.

NBA Jam could be added with the amount of times it has been on sale or one of the other EA BC games. (is there any?)

I think the 5 days is like a taster in the hopes you'll get a subscription, so I doubt it'll add it onto existing memberships.
Where's the cheapest place to get a 12month sub?

So that would mean there is a 97% chance you're wrong about being wrong 97% of the time, no?

Doesn't look like Sony want it on there

Never 3 years ago on ps3 we got games you would play now if you want to play them on ps4 you have to rent them

​I wouldn't worry there's nothing on there worth playing really apart from Battlefront which has a ten hour limit.
it muddys the market which is probably why Sony don't want it.

It launched strong but Now it's value is questionable. Dragon Age and need for speed you can Pick up to keep forever for About £10 each

Last years sports games are practically worthless at about 4 quid a pop second hand and most people don't want.

There's nothing on the horizon too so it's probably a bad time to sign up hence the free weekend to try and get a few more sign ups.

​Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare is worth it alone!
It's decent. Battlefield games are there. I'm quite enjoying titan fall all the maps and season pass are included. Great laugh with some mates.
Personally for £20 for 12 months you cant go wrong even cheaper if you look around possibly ebay i recall paying £12 just before xmas but the point is you pay £20 for right now 14 full games not to mention the 10 hour trial of battlefront etc also anything that might get added surely is a no brainer even if like me who hates sports games its still worthwhile.

I got mine from 1 of the foreign Xbox stores, can't recall which 1 but I found out about it on the Star Wars battlefront offer on Hukd.
Nice one buzz, I already have EA access but a great deal for people to try it if they are in 2 minds
Looking forward to trying this, got my revalout card today so on the lookout for a decent live deal as well! Thanks op
I'll have money on there servers crashing please.

I can't find anything cheap on eBay atm but if you change your region to Romania, it works out at about £14.

Yawn, yawn, yawn, yawn, meh, meh, got
I think I'd prefer another odditly like PvZ GW tbh.

Heat for the deal BTW... EA Access is well worth the money for the Battlefield games, Titanfall, DA:I and pre-release trials (and even better if you're into sports games).
This trial should secure quite a few new subs

By April/May all the sports games will be updated to the 2016 versions. Saying that, they've made the control system on NBA & Madden a little too complex for my liking.

I've got 2 weeks left on my 1 month subscription.
£20 for a year isn't bad, but at the same time, with the backwards compatibility and free Games with Gold, I'm not sure I'll dip into the vault games enough over a year, seeing as I really only use my console for a couple of hours per week.

Just looking on ebay for a cheaper 12 month. There's nothing.
In fact, the only thing I could find was one for £29.99
Why would anyone pay that on ebay when you can get it direct from EA/MS for £20???

Best game in the vault is Peggle 2.
**** Stupid question alert! Be warned! ****
I know it says xbox one EA access all over the listing, but as its Xbox live Gold/ EA Access related, is this available for the 360 aswell or are these definitely xbox one games/ access only?
Is there a similar EA promo equivalent for the 360?
Not to be a bummer, but shouldn't this be in the freebies section?

Well no, Xbox Live isn't free. If it was in Freebies they'd be stating it should be in deals.

Your sexual preference has nothing to do with this deal.

EA Access is only available on the Xbox One.

Prices from CEX:

Battlefield 4 - £20
Battlefield Hardline - £18
UFC - £20
NBA Live 15 - £15
NHL 15 - £15
FIFA 15 - £5
Plants v Zombies: Garden Warfare - £25
Madden 15 - £15
Dragonage Inquisition - £15
Need for Speed Rivals - £18

That's £166 in total, or 8 years of EA Access subscription, where they will inevitably add the 16 versions of Fifa etc at some point, and you get Beta access to new games ahead of launch, plus 10 hours of play time on new titles.

It's a no brainer, unless you like just throwing money away.
Thanks for the post. I might give this a try...

Fingers crossed the guy on Ebay releases the 12 month subs again for £12...

I found it perfect for things I wasn't sure on, Titanfall for example. £3.99, played it a week, decided it wasn't for me.. I'd have hated to have paid £10-15 even and had to sell/mess around.

It was also brilliant for trying out Need for Speed (newest one) and Battlefront, full game 10 hour trials, saved myself £40-50 on Need for Speed as again it wasn't for me, and bought Battlefront on PS4.
