EA Is Sending 2 TB Hard Drives To Longtime EA Access Subscribers

Check your mail!


Here's something pretty cool: Electronic Arts is sending out 2 TB external hard drives to EA Access members who have been subscribers "from the start."

Recently, people on Twitter reported receiving the surprise care package in the mail, which includes a 2 TB Seagate external hard drive, three one-month EA Access membership codes, and a note from EA.

"We figured with the 40+ games in the Vault, you could use some extra hard drive space, plus a little extra something to get your whole crew on board," reads the note from EA.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer also reported that he received the EA Access package of goodies.

The Seagate Xbox One external hard drive normally goes for around $100, while one-month EA Access memberships cost $5, so this is a pretty sweet offer and a nice gesture of goodwill, indeed.

EA Access launched in August 2014 on Xbox One, with a PC version called Origin Access debuting in January 2016. In addition to a library of games, subscribers save 10 percent on all EA digital content and can play some games ahead of launch.

No version of EA Access is available on PlayStation 4.

In other news about EA Access, the newest game to join the Vault, Zuma's Revenge, launched on March 30. It is an Xbox 360 game that plays on Xbox One via backward compatibility.

EA Access will soon be joined by another digital game program on Xbox One. The Xbox Game Pass, a Netflix-style service that provides access to a 100-game library for $10/month, will launch later this year. By comparison, EA Access costs $5/month or $30/year.
