EA Sports UFC Will Be Added to EA Access Vault Next Week

Posted December 11th, 2014 at 12:30 pm


Those who didn’t grab EA Sports UFC digitally when it was available for under $14 on the week of Black Friday, and that have an Xbox One, will have another opportunity to play it for cheap. The game will be put into the “Vault” through EA Access on December 18.

EA Access is the subscription service that is currently exclusive to Xbox One as Sony opted not to allow it for the PS4. It’s $30 for a full year or $5 month-to-month. Members get unlimited access to the Vault which contains older EA games. Right now that includes 2013’s slate of sports titles, Need for Speed Rivals, PvZ Garden Warfare, Battlefield 4, and Peggle 2 with UFC joining them next week. Also there’s 10% savings on all digital purchases and five days of limited (six hours) early play before each EA game releases.

It comes as a bit of a surprise that UFC would go into the Vault already. The game has only been out for six months and it isn’t as though there is a sequel right around the corner. The next entry in the new franchise has been planned for some point inĀ 2016. The company hasn’t even stopped supporting the game. There have now been six patches after the one this week that added in four “legends” and there apparently are even still more updates to come.
