EA has announced the next three games that it will be adding to its EA Access vault. Subscribers on Xbox One will get two more titles on July 12. Another will be added on August 30.

Next week, Coldwood’s Unravel and Ghost Games’ Need for Speed will be free with an EA Access membership. On August 30, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 joins the party.

Ridiculous value.

Sad to see GW2 bomb although it's a mess compared to the first one, I skipped it too after playing the beta.
But I do want GW3. :(

I'm not. They changed a bunch of shit that didn't need messing with. Map design is horrible compared to the original and their balance fixes are a mess. It just wasn't anywhere near fun enough to play. And they still didn't add online split-screen.

EA Access and Sunset Overdrive are literally the only reasons why I don't regret Xbox One purchase.

Well, I'm officially never buying an EA game again. I'll just wait 6 months and get it in Access.

EA Access has been an amazing value for me. Figure Mirror's Edge will be added by the end of the year.

Cool. I want to play both of the July games. I think I have a one month trial code lying around, too.

They said from the start its games as a service, Netflix for games if you will. The more popular the game the longer it will take to get to EA access if ever. Mass Effect for example is unlikely to be free for years.

Its a great service with tons of value for the small price. I wouldn't want everyone to start doing it but it works for EA.

I know they said that they will release the games depending on their popularity, but I still can't shake this feeling. We live during a time when great games are out almost on a monthly basis, so why not wait

Unravel is great, glad that more people will get chance to experience it.

Doesn't Need for Speed have some hilariously awful FMV? Will give it a go for that alone

Glad I didn't buy Unravel on X1 summer sale... Will definitely pick it up.

Glad I waited for NFS. Access keeps delivering; I wonder how profitable or sustainable is it for EA.
I think you have to couple EA Access along with EA's focus on microtransactions as supplementary income for their annual franchises. For instance, Madden, FIFA, NHL, and NBA Live all launch on EA Access for free generally right around the end of their respective seasons, and so from, say, January 20th to July, EA will make revenue on the people who download Madden for free and then get sucked into Ultimate Team, where they may not spend any money, BUT they may spend a few bucks here or there of pure profit for EA.

I think that long term incentive of the free games ends up giving more revenue with systems like those, where somebody probably wouldn't be willing to even drop $20 on last year's Madden in past years.

Do games ever get rotated out of EA Access, or is the library just growing all the time?

Keeps growing. You also don't need to download the game during a particular time window like PS Plus or Games With Gold. You have access to the entire vault as long as you are subscribed.

Origin Access is double the price and contains less value than this. EA pls give PC some love, we're not Sony.

That's why I didn't pick up Unravel in the sale. Although I should support the devs and the game is great.

Thought the consensus was that PVZ wasn't gonna on Access cause of it's DLC/microtransaction model.

Cool to see it making it on there so soon, though.
