EA Access is a subscription-based gaming service by Electronic Arts. EA Access launched only on Xbox One on August 11, 2014. A similar version called Origin Access launched only on PC on January 12, 2016.
EA Access and Origin Access allow you to select games that are published by Electronic Arts, along with additional incentives.
