Another Xbox One Game Goes Free For EA Access Subscribers

NHL 17 joins the lineup.


The library of games that EA Access subscribers have access to grows today with NHL 17.

The professional hockey game, which was originally released in September 2016, joins NHL 15 and NHL 16 in the Vault of freebies. NHL 17 was not released on PC, so it is not available through the EA Access equivalent, Origin Access. The EA and Origin Access libraries do not mirror one another.

There are dozens of games available in the EA and Origin Access game libraries--you can see all of them here in our roundup.

No version of EA Access is available on PlayStation 4. According to Sony, the service does not offer the kind of value PlayStation fans have come to expect. That being said, Sony maintains that it is open to having a dialogue with EA about how it might be able to bring EA Access to PS4 someday.

In addition to games, EA/Origin Access members can play some games ahead of launch; most of the time, subscribers get a five-day headstart. Another benefit is that subscribers save 10 percent on all EA digital content, which knocks down the price of a $60 game to $54.

The service costs $5/month or $30/year.
