"At EA, we are always looking for new ways to make it easier for gamers to play more EA games across all platforms, and we are excited about what EA Access will offer to players on Xbox One," announced EA in a blog post published on Tuesday.

"EA Access membership unlocks The Vault, a collection of EA’s biggest games on Xbox One ready for you to download and play," added EA.
