Madden NFL 16 Now Free on Xbox One With EA Access

EA's latest Madden joins the lineup just days before Super Bowl 50.


The next EA Access free game has arrived. Xbox One owners with a membership to the service can now download Madden NFL 16, the latest entry in EA's professional football series that was released back in August. To mark the game's arrival, EA also put out a silly new video featuring the Lucas brothers from past videos.

Madden NFL 16 becomes the third Madden game available though EA Access, joining Madden NFL 15 and Madden NFL 25. Its arrival today comes just a few days before Super Bowl 50 and the game is also marked down on Xbox Live this week, no doubt to make the most of the annual Super Bowl hype.

Madden NFL 16's Super Bowl 50 simulation predicted that the Carolina Panthers will beat the Carolina Panthers in a 24-20 game full of twists and turns.

EA Access is currently available only on Xbox One, though a PC version called Origin Access arrived in January. You can sign up for $5/month or $30/year.

In addition to the free games, other subscription benefits include a 10 percent discount on all EA digital content and access to upcoming EA titles five days before they are released publicly.

Games featured in the Vault will never be removed, EA has promised.
