EA Access Adds Another Game On Xbox One

The library continues to grow.


One of the best perks of an EA Access subscription is that you can play games from an ever-growing catalog--"The Vault," as EA calls it--of free games. This catalog expands further this week with the launch of The Sims 4, which is now in the library.

The Sims 4 is not a new game, as it was originally released on PC back in 2014. The console edition is newer, having been released in November 2017. The life-simulation game was garnered mixed reviews, with GameSpot's scoring it a 6/10 for PC.

Whatever the case, it's a big-name franchise that console players may be happy to see added to the Vault to play for free on Xbox One. The Sims 4 was already released in the Origin Access vault of freebies. Additionally, all of The Sims 4's expansions are 10 percent off.

In addition to free games, EA/Origin Access members can play some games (but not all) 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.
