Banff Springs Rory McIlroy PGA Tour

The fourth EA Sports game to have originally released in 2015 has reached the Vault in EA Access. Madden NFL 16 was added in February, NHL 16 in March, and FIFA 16 in April. Rory McIlroy PGA Tour has now joined them and all other games from the publisher to have come out earlier this generation.

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 all the sports titles include the likes of Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Titanfall. 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 final EA Sports game from last year to make its way to EA Access will be NBA Live 16. That one is scheduled to go in on May 25.

Additionally a new patch went out today for McIlroy that introduces another new course to the game. “Renowned for its panoramic beauty, The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course in Alberta is a captivating and challenging layout set in the heart of Canada’s Rocky Mountains.” Its addition brings the total to 14 real-world courses featured in the game.
