Madden NFL 18 added to the EA Access Vault

Posted February 15th, 2018 at 9:30 am

The first EA Sports game from 2017 has now reached the Vault in EA Access. Madden NFL 18 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. EA executives have hinted that may change this year however. 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 NFL 18 now includes all earlier XB1 sports titles plus the likes of Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Skate 3, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, 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 at practically the same point it did last year. In addition to potential new subs and hoping to pull in some new fans to buy Madden NFL 19, 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. NBA Live 18 may be the next to be added, but Madden going in first likely means it won’t happen this month.
