A few days ago, Electronic Arts announced a new program for Xbox One called EA Access, which would allow users to access a number of games and exclusive goodies, including access to upcoming games, for a monthly or yearly access fee. Now all people needed to know is when it was launching. Welp, we've got good news.

The publisher has confirmed that the EA Access program has gone live on Xbox One, starting today. Users will be able to access four games with the program, including Battlefield 4, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14 and Peggle 2, along with new titles on the way.

The program goes for $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year, and also comes with other perks, including early access to forthcoming Xbox One titles like Madden NFL 15 and Dragon Age: Inquisition, as well as a ten percent title on digital EA titles and its coordinating DLC content. Happy gaming!

      That's interesting. Early access to buy games? I could see people spending the $30 a year for that perk.

      I'm really curious what the next games are. They picked the exact 4 games that were the worst choices for me. Don't give any shits about FIFA and Madden and I owned the other two. If there had been one different game in the pile I probably would have already signed up.

        I've actually been having some fun with FIFA. This is probably the first FIFA game I've played in years.

        I think I read somewhere gold is not required. I'll try to find where I saw that
