Seven free PC games coming soon to EA's Access Vault

From tower defense to RPGs, EA's covering practically all bases with its next set of free games.


EA has announced the next batch of titles it will add to its subscription-based Access service, although the company did not specify a date when the titles will be added.

Those titles, listed only as "coming soon," are Plants vs. Zombies, SimCity 2000, Jade Empire, Mini Metro, and the Crysis trilogy of first-person shooters.

EA expects to add the games by the end of summer. Once they join the lineup, Access subscribers will have 37 free games at their fingertips. The Mass Effect trilogy, Battlefield 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Torchlight 2, and Trine are some of the over three dozen games already available.

In addition to a steady trickle of free games, subscribers to EA Access get early access to new games. Of particular note, subscribers will be among the first to play Battlefield 1 ahead of its worldwide launch this October.
