EA has announced that a host of top-tier video games are coming to EA Access and Origin Access- it’s subscription program for the Xbox One and Windows PC respectively. These include UFC 2, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, and Star Wars Battlefront with more to come.
Meanwhile the Xbox One gets a few extra additions with Heavy Weapon, Bejeweled 2, Bejeweled 3, Feeding Frenzy, Feeding Frenzy 2, and Zuma in what it calls the Throwback Pack. These were released on the Xbox 360 digitally via the Xbox Live Arcade and now can be played via EA Access as well.
More games coming to EA Access and Origin Access is always a good thing particularly the likes of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst considering it just released a few months ago and was heavily discounted during Amazon’s Great Indian Sale.

EA Access and Origin Access grants users to a collection of Xbox One and Windows PC games respectively from EA's catalogue (though there are games from other publishers and developers in the case of the latter) as well as giving users access to check out new EA games before they're released. Also they let subscribers save 10 percent on Origin purchases. EA Access costs Rs. 1,990 for an annual subscription on Xbox One while Origin Access costs Rs. 315 a month. Though keep in mind that you’ll need a pretty fast Internet connection to make the most of it. A majority of the games you’d want to play are huge downloads in excess of 20GB in most cases on either platform.
