Racing game Need for Speed Rivals is now available to play through Electronic Arts' subscription program, EA Access, the company announced in a post to its official blog.

Earlier this week, EA announced that Need for Speed Rivals will be added to The Vault, a collection of games you can play for free with a subscription, "in the coming weeks," so its immediate release is a little sooner than anticipated.

Need for Speed Rivals joins existing titles Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Peggle 2, and Madden NFL 25. As previously announced, you can play these games for as long as you want, provided your subscription ($5/month or $30/year) remains active.

EA Access is available only on Xbox One, though Sony hasn't ruled out it coming to PlayStation 4 in the future.

For more on what markets EA Access is available in and data from EA showing how popular the program's six-hour trials are, read our coverage of the company's announcement from earlier in the week.

GameSpot gave Need for Speed Rivals an 8/10 for its gorgeous visuals and seamless integration of single- and multiplayer. Check out our full review, or watch the video review above.
