FIFA 16 now available on EA Access on Xbox One, Origin for PC

FIFA 16 joins other popular EA games in the publisher's subscription-based Vault.


Look, we all love playing soccer with cars, but real soccer is fun, too. That's why EA just added FIFA 16 to The Vault, its subscription service that lets you play 15 games (and counting) as much as you want for $4.99 a month, instead of paying each game's retail price.

FIFA 16 contains loads of official licenses, 12 women's teams, and the popular FIF Ultimate Team (FUT) mode, which lets you... well, build your ultimate team. Obviously. Plus, there's FUT Draft, a brand new mode that "will test your team building skills as you pick the best fit for each position from a five-player draw," per the game's official site on "Draft a squad and challenge opponents in a series of up to four matches to win big rewards for your club."

You'll need 16.87 GB of space to play FIFA 16 on Xbox One, or 15 GB on PC.

If FIFA 16 isn't enough incentive to plunk down five bucks a month for EA's Vault, you'll also be able to play unlimited hours in Battlefield 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Need for Speed: Rivals, just to name a few. Subscribers are also privy to new EA games ahead of official release via Play First Trials, and EA hasn't been shy about mentioning that Mirror's Edge Catalyst will be included as a Play First Trial title.
