Madden NFL 16 added to the EA Access Vault

Posted February 2nd, 2016 at 11:30 am


The first of last year’s sports games has reached the Vault in EA Access. Madden NFL 16 has just been added, making it available in full to all subscribers.

EA Access is currently exclusive to Xbox One with Sony declining to offer the service on PS4. For $30 a year or $5 month-to-month, members get unlimited access to the back library of EA games on the console which in addition to Madden 16 now includes 2014’s sports titles plus Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Titanfall, and others. There’s also the 10 hour trials with every EA game that begin five days before release and 10% savings on all digital purchases whether it be the actual games or microtransactions within them.

The arrival of Madden to the Vault comes a month earlier than it did last year. That allows for a quick promotional push for the service in the lead-up to the Super Bowl. In addition to potential new subs, those introducedĀ to the game for the first time may be more inclined to try outĀ and invest in the game’s Ultimate Team mode. Expect to see Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, NBA Live 16, NHL 16, and FIFA 16 follow over the next four months.
