Now Playing: The Sims 4 - Cats & Dogs Official Trailer

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.

For more, check out GameSpot's roundup of all the EA/Origin Access games here.

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.

"EA" and "free" cannot be put in same sentence. Not without being more fishy than Lindsay Lohan's crotch.

If it is a paid subscription, then these are not "free" games. Seriously, what is so hard to understand about that? Netflix isn't free, Hulu isn't free. EA Access IS NOT FREE

@krakatowa: I don’t think anyone assumes subscription services are free anyway.

But you’re right, when a new series or movie launches on Netflix, no one says ‘free’ - not even Netflix.

@Sevenizz: This was mostly aimed at whoever wrote this article. They stated "you can play games from an ever growing catalog of free games". Paraphrasing of course, but you get it
