As an avid gamer and student, a common struggle is being able to afford different games. I am a queen at overplaying a game, knocking out 100% in Shadow of Mordor was a proud achievement of mine! But I think the general consensus with gaming is having some sort of variety.
I play Xbox (the best) and subsequently am subscribed to Xbox Live with a Gold membership. The gold membership comes with four free games per month, both Xbox one and Xbox 360 titles. However, in all honesty the majority of these games aren’t my forte… a lot of them being small indie games. Don’t get me wrong there have been some great games but it isn’t what I’d call reliable.
This is where I considered Xbox Game Pass, however for the cost I wasn’t sure it was worth it. For around £9.99 per month it just didn’t suit me.
This brought me onto EA Access.
EA Access is a subscription service for £3.99 a month or £19.99 for a year. It gives you unlimited access to dozens of great games, with a list which is always being added to. It covers franchises such as Battlefield, FIFA, UFC, and Dragon Age.
On top of the game access you also get to try new EA games days before release and you save 10% on EA digital purchases.
This suited me much better, not only is it cheaper but it seems to have more titles that I would prefer to play. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve not totally ruled out Xbox Game Pass, however, for now I’m sticking with EA Access.
