Free Electronic Arts games await Xbox One owners with Xbox Live Gold membership next week.
According to a post on Major Nelson,Xbox One owners can enjoy the EA Access Vault without any cost at all starting Tuesday, January 19 until Sunday, January 24. To enjoy this treat from EA, Xbox Live Gold members with the latest Microsoft game console need to download Electronic Art’s Access Hub app. Members simply need to click on the Gold Member area that can be found on the home dashboard.
Via EA Access Vault, Xbox Live Gold members using Xbox One consoles can play some of the biggest titles from one of the most successful video game developers and publishers. Two of the free EA games accessible from The Vault for Xbox One owners are “Battlefield Hardline,” and “Titanfall.”
“Battlefield Hardline,” released March 2015 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC, is a first-person shooter title developed by Visceral Games and EA Dice. Metacritic gave the game a 7.1 Metascore and a 5.0 User Score.
“Titanfall,” a multiplayer FPS video game from Respawn Entertainment hit the shelves March of 2014. The official website highlighted “Titanfall’s” cutting-edge combat techniques which give players the freedom to fight both as an armored Titan and an elite assault Pilot. It also brings in “the experience that combines fast-paced multiplayer action with the dramatically charged moments of a cinematic universe.”
Other Xbox One games available from EA’s The Vault are “FIFA 15,” “Dragon Age: Inquisition,” “Need for Speed Rivals” and “NBA LIVE 15,” Peggle 2 and “NHL 15.” Below is a tweet about EA Access Free Play Days, posted by Larry Hyrb, aka Major Nelson, the Director of Programming for Xbox Live.

PVZ fans should also take advantage of the EA Access Free Play Days for Xbox One owners. Binge-play the original “Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare” game and prepare for the arrival of the upcoming iteration of the famous tower defense and multiplayer third-person shooter video game from PopCap. “Your characters earned carry over – plus EA Access members get 10 percent off EA games, and get to play GW2 before it hits the shelves,” Major Nelson explained.
Aside from Xbox One, Garden Warfare 2 is also set to arrive next month on PS4 and PC. Check out “Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2” beta trailer below, released by the official Youtube channel of PVZ a week ago.
EA Access membership costs $4.99 monthly. But those who wish to be a member, but wants a cheaper option can opt for a full-year subscription which is worth $29.99. Xbox One users who will decide to get EA Access membership afterward can continue to enjoy the games where they left off, maintain their Gamerscore as well as achievements they acquired during the Free Play Days.
As for other free Xbox One games, Xbox Live’s Games with Gold promotion makes “Zheros” available for $0 starting today, January 16, up to February 15. A separate page from Major Nelson provided a description for the Rimlight Studios’ action and adventure game for Xbox One.
“In a journey through distant and unknown galaxies, you play as the members of the ZHEROS squad: Mike and Captain Dorian. Brave, strong as awkward and dim-witted the first one; agile, smart and ready for anything the second one. They are both intergalactic agents called to defend the universe from crime. From bizarre characters and encounters to strange locations, find out what mystery awaits you at the end of your journey.”
“Zheros” as well as “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” are available for free for Xbox One owners who are also Xbox Live Gold members as part of Microsoft’s January 2016’s Games with Gold offer.
