EA Access launches on PlayStation 4 in July

You can see those games displayed as being part of the Vault on the EA Access website now, but as there's no method for the PlayStation 4 to actually play those titles, you aren't going to see games like the original Mass Effect or Dead Space in the EA Access Vault on that platform.

More than a few weeks after the announcement of the arrival of EA Access also on PlayStation 4, Electronic Arts has finally revealed the launch day of the subscription service on the Sony console.

It's unclear why Sony ultimately made a decision to let EA Access on PS4. Up to this point, EA Access had been exclusive to the Xbox One, but that will change next month. If you'd rather not follow the timer, the page also allows users to sign up for launch notifications via email.

'PUBG' developing a story-based game
After a falling-out with Activision, Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield has found a new home full of chicken dinners. Regardless of what precisely the new studio is working on, it appears PUBG fans will have another project to look forward to.

EA Access costs $30/£20 a year or $5/£4, though if you have an EA Access subscription on the Xbox One, you'll have to purchase a separate subscription for the PS4 version.

Those who subscribe will get a 10% discount on digital EA games and add-ons, including new titles. The EA back catalogue is fairly decent with plenty of Battlefield games and annual sports releases to catch up on.

Early access "Play First" trials for new and upcoming games. Once the service goes live on July 24, would-be EA Access subscribers can pick it up via the PlayStation Store for $5/month or $30/year. It was widely assumed that Sony didn't want EA Access competing with its PlayStation Now service, but that was never confirmed or denied.
