EA Access is being rolled out in beta to a small number of Xbox One players starting Tuesday in a test group, but will "soon" be available for anyone with Microsoft's latest generation video game consoles, according to the California-based video game company.
The subscription starts at $4.99 (approximately Rs. 300) a month, or $29.99 (approximately Rs. 1,800) a year on Xbox Live.
During the EA Access test phase, players will get unlimited access to FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4 with more titles to be added, according to the game maker.
The team has also noted that the EA Access subscriptions will also be available to purchase from local retail stores, GameStop and on Amazon, for Xbox One gamers across Europe, as well as EB Games in Canada.
Sony includes downloads of selected older titles as part of its PlayStation Plus subscription service on its consoles. Players have been watching for a "cloud" based PlayStation game service since it purchased game-streaming specialty firm Gaikai two years ago, a service announced as PlayStation Now.
