Xbox One Owners Can Play Madden NFL 16 Before Everyone Else

By way of EA Access.


EA Sports' upcoming professional football game Madden NFL 16, which features Odell Beckham Jr. on the cover, will be playable first on Xbox One by way of EA Access. Subscribers typically get to play upcoming EA games five days before their public launch, but EA has not announced specifics around Madden yet.

The news comes by way of Microsoft marketing executive Aaron Greenberg, who wrote on Twitter: "Hot new @EAMaddenNFL 16 announced, play it early with @EAAccess, only on #XboxOne"

Madden NFL 16 launches this August. It's also coming to PlayStation 4, as well as last-generation consoles like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. EA Access, however, is available only on Xbox One.

The subscription service costs $5/month or $30/year. In addition to getting to play upcoming EA games ahead of everyone else, subscribers get access to free games in The Vault (there are currently eleven) and a 10 percent discount on all EA digital content.
