Xbox One EA Access Adds Second Backwards-Compatible Xbox 360 Game

Dead Space has arrived in The Vault.


Electronic Arts today released a new game into the EA Access free game "Vault" on Xbox One. 2008 survival-horror game Dead Space is now available for subscribers, becoming the second backwards-compatible Xbox 360 game in the program, following Plants vs. Zombies, which was released into the program in March. Dead Space just this week came to Xbox One through backwards compatibility.

Dead Space, which is also free right now for all Xbox Live Gold members, becomes the 18th free game in the EA Access Vault, joining Dragon Age: Inquisition, Madden NFL 16, Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, and Titanfall.

These are the full versions of the games, and they are playable for as long as your subscription is active. There is no set schedule for when new games will join the program. EA has also pledged never to remove any of the free games.

EA Access is available for $5 per month or $30 per year. Other perks include early access to upcoming games and a 10 percent discount on EA digital content.

A similar subscription service called Origin Access is available on PC. It also currently has more than a dozen free games available to members, though the offerings are different than what's available on EA Access for Xbox One.
