Need For Speed Rivals joining EA Access this month

EA has announced that a new game will be added to the EA Access Vault this month, and it's none other than the fantastic racing game Need For Speed Rivals. Players will be able to speed through city streets and compete with their friends in this new entry of the franchise, which will be free to play for those who are subscribers to the service. No word on when the game will be added.

In addition, both NHL 15 and FIFA 15, which release later this month, will be getting timed trials with the service. Both games will be available for download five days early, but, like the previous Madden demo, players will only be able to access it for six hours. Thankfully, all their stats will be carried over to the full game releases once they're picked up.

EA Access is available now on Xbox One for $4.99 monthly, or a yearly fee of $29.99.
