FIFA 15 Joins The EA Access Vault On Xbox One


FIFA 15 has been added to the EA Access Vault as part of the EA Access subscription service, which is exclusive to the Xbox One. It currently costs $29.99 per year, or $4.99 per month in the US.

As of this announcement, 11 complete titles are available to download and play instantly, including games which have been released within the last year, such as Madden 15, NHL 15 and today’s new addition.

Firstly, as someone who has loved football (soccer) ever since I was barely able to walk, this is great to see. More importantly however, I find that EA’s contribution to the service has been really impressive. Without trying to sound like an EA representative (which I can assure you, I am not), the sheer amount of content on offer, for such a low monthly/yearly fee, is fantastic.

For example, FIFA 15 was originally released to the public back in September, $54.99 as its average price point in the US. For a game which still has plenty of lifespan before it becomes outdated, I think that the asking price of $29.99 per year, along with ten other fully playable games, discounts, and early access trials, is superb value to the consumer.

EA recently announced that they were “extremely pleased” with EA Access, during the latest quarterly financial conference call.

Nothing has been mentioned regarding a possibility of the service reaching the Playstation 4. Sony turned down the ability to offer it, and commented back in July 2014 that they believed that it did not “represent good value to the Playstation gamer”.

FIFA 15 suffered a few setbacks this year, but it still remains the most popular soccer game on the market, and it is one of EA’s main franchises. It was the 2014 top seller in the UK, shifting over 2.5 million units in just over three months. FIFA makes a large amount of money through its Ultimate Team game mode, and this addition will only help EA to profit even further from in-game sales.
