Mirror's Edge Catalyst Becomes an Xbox One EA Access Freebie Soon

It's been just five months since Catalyst was released.

EA Access subscribers on Xbox One will soon have two more free games to play, EA has announced.

Both Mirror's Edge and Mirror's Edge Catalyst will be added to the EA Access Vault on Wednesday, November 9. That will make them playable in their entirety for as long as you remain a subscriber.

EA Access costs $5 per month or $30 per year and offers discounts and early access in addition to its library of free Vault games. There's no word on if the PC's equivalent service, Origin Access, will also add the games. A PS4 version of Access does not yet exist.

Catalyst's addition is noteworthy because it was released in June, meaning it was only on sale for a mere five months before going free to Access members. That's among the shorter gaps we've seen so far, though other recent additions like Unravel and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 were also fairly quick turnarounds. Star Wars Battlefront, released last year, will also arrive before the end of the year.

Cool. I'll wait for it till it hits for Origin since I'm a Origin member.

I don't understand how anyone could use the word "free" with regard to a paid subscription service. "Mirror's Edge Catalyst to be added to EA Access Vault" would be appropriate.

@walidras: It's not free, it's just a demo.

@walidras: They did that with Mirror's Edge already. They put "soon to be added", let the media assume it will be the same as all the other games, then pull a bait and switch and put it up with (trial).

@walidras: Fifa 2016 is a year old. Note that Fifa 2017 is on their too, as a trial.
