Madden NFL 17 added to the EA Access Vault

Posted February 23rd, 2017 at 1:30 pm

The second EA Sports game from 2016 has now reached the Vault in EA Access. Madden NFL 17 was added today 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 despite its remarkable value. 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 17 now includes EA Sports UFC 2 and all earlier XB1 sports titles plus the likes of Skate 3, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Battlefield 4, Star Wars Battlefront, and many 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 three weeks later than last year but a week earlier than in 2015. In addition to potential new subs and hoping to pull in some new fans to buy Madden 18 this fall, those introduced to the game for the first time without having to pay for it may be more inclined to invest in its Ultimate Team mode. Expect to see both NHL 17 and FIFA 17 join Madden on the service within the next few months.
