Two new games hitting EA Access Vault this week, Play First Trial schedule announced

Gaming / Xbox

The EA Access Vault is getting a bit larger this week as both Need for Speed and Unravel are set to join it on Tuesday, according to a tweet and a blog post from EA Access.

In addition to announcing the latest two additions, EA Access also outlined what else is coming to the service over the summer. It’s a bit of a case of shooting yourself in the foot though, as those looking to maybe purchase some of the upcoming Vault games might hold off until it’s in the Vault and access them for the low monthly/yearly EA Access fee. Unravel is currently on sale in the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, and those thinking about buying Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 might want to hold off as well as it’ll be joining the Vault on August 30th.

On the flip side, a few more games have been announced as part of the EA Access First Play Trial program which allows gamers early access to the newest EA games without having to purchase them. This try before you buy scenario usually gives EA Access members up to 10 hours of play time of the full game before its release date. Games joining the First Play Trial program include:

EA SPORTS™ Madden 17 Play First Trial – August 18. In the Madden NFL 17 Play First Trial, players on Xbox One can take their team all the way with the most balanced gameplay, deeper Franchise and an all new commentary team.

EA SPORTS™ NHL® 17 Play First Trial – September 8. All-new game modes, new and deeper experiences in fan-favorite modes, and the best on-ice gameplay ever make NHL 17 the most exciting EA SPORTS NHL game to date. Live out your hockey fantasy in all-new Draft Champions and World Cup of Hockey game modes, own every zone with authentic goaltenders, new Net Battles on offense and defense, and bone-crushing Collision Physics.

EA SPORTS™ FIFA 17 Play First Trial – September 22. Powered by Frostbite™ (Xbox One, PS4, PC platforms only), one of the industry’s leading game engines, FIFA 17 delivers authentic, true-to-life action, takes players to new football worlds, and introduces fans to characters full of depth and emotion.

Also coming in the fall, EA Access members on Xbox One and Origin Access members on PC can experience the dawn of all-out war first with Battlefield™ 1 Play First Trials on October 13, ahead of its October 21 worldwide launch.

If you’re an EA Access member, and with a low monthly price of $4.99 or a yearly price of $29.99 there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be with over 20 games currently in the Vault, you’ll be able to pick up Need for Speed and Unravel on Tuesday.
