Awesome, two games I decided to wait it out on. Got about 30 minutes left on Battlefont and 2 hours on UFC 2.

Surprised UFC 2 is coming so soon, I expected that early next year. Just over 10 and a half months since SW:BF released.

Not surprised by Battlefronts addition, it's constantly on sale - the DLC is the real money maker at this point so good move.

Didn't expect SWB so fast
It's been almost a year hasn't it? That would be one of the slowest games to enter the vault thus far.

Also, I regret buying UFC 2 digitally on the PS4... should have just waited like every other EA game or bought physical.

Yup it's the longest game to hit the vault.

Well, Titanfall was but that was originally excluded, wouldn't say that counts :p

Noice.
I wonder what the time frame for Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 will be like. If TF2 doesn't do very well, I could see it there by this time next year. BF1 will probably take longer.

Titanfall 2 will take at least a year IMO because of the whole excluded thing. My bet is 1.5 years~ like the first one. I don't see it being added within the usual timeframes.

Damn... Makes me wish I wasn't dumb enough to buy Battlefront at launch and with the season pass to boot. I don't think I've even touched any of the damn DLC and now the core game is free via EA Access. I need to be strong and just avoid Titanfall 2/Battlefield 1 at launch...

As usual, time to see about trading in my disc.

Catalyst too, nice.
I kept that installed since the trial.
Didn't even try the trial, it wasn't working for me back then.

Sony why you no fun. Was thinking of trading in my Xbox along with my ps4 for the pro but now I'm going to keep the xbox, Forza is great and I've gotten alot of usage from the service so looking forward to the additions.

Nice. Been wanting to try Battlefront and I have a 30-day trial waiting to use.

It's on PC, but a separate subscription with a different set of games.
It's on PC under Origin Access. It *should* be added to Origin access at the same time, but don't take my word for that.
Thanks. Just checked out Origin Access and it looks like these games will be added as well. When I finish my PC build later this month I will have to try it out.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst as well?
Very nice, I just finished my playthrough on PC, but I'll take the Xbox version.

Jesus Christ this service is so damn good. I wonder if the worry mongers who were concerned about the precedent EA was setting have changed their minds at all.

Just noticed that Catalyst was added to the list, holy shit! I really enjoyed my time with the free trial, but not enough to buy the game at launch. I was waiting for a good sale but now I won't have to! Even more of a reason to avoid buying EA games at launch. Thanks EA!

Added to the main post, thanks for checking!





I'm surprised Mirrors Edge was added so early too, I wasn't expecting that until next year at the earliest.
