Earlier this year, Microsoft and EA opened up the EA Access “Vault” to all Xbox Live Gold subscribers for a week of binge gaming. With this year’s E3 Expo set to kick off any minute now, they’re doing it again.
If you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you’ll have free to all 21 games in the EA Access “Vault” from now until Wednesday, June 22. That includes EA Sports titles such as EA Sports UFC, FIFA 16, FIFA 15, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 16, Madden NFL 25, Madden NFL 14, NBA Live 16, NBA Live 15, NHL 16, NHL 15, and Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, as well as Battlefield Hardline, Battlefield 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Titanfall, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, Need For Speed Rivals, and Peggle 2. A pair of Xbox 360 games, Dead Space and Plants vs Zombies, will also be available through the “Vault” thanks to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility options.
Xbox One interested in subscribing to the EA Access service can do so for $4.99 per month, or $29.99 for a full year. A paid subscription to EA Access also includes “Play First” rental access to several of EA’s biggest upcoming games (including Battlefield 1, FIFA 17, Madden NFL 17, and Mass Effect: Andromeda) before they’re released to the public.
PopCap Games has seemingly released Plants vs Zombies for every platform under the sun, but they found one they missed as the publisher has added the game to the DSiWare Shop today.
If the eternal struggle between brain-eaters and begonias doesn’t interest you, this week’s DSiWare update also includes Rabi Laby, a platformer where a woman and her pet rabbit venture to a magical land; and 5-In-1 Mahjong, a portable mahjong game.
The lone WiiWare release this week is Liight, a puzzle game that combines music and colors.
More information on all of these titles can be found after the break. (more…)
Microsoft may be planning a five-week blowout of big games beginning next week with the Xbox Live House Party, but Sony has decided to dump a massive amount of cool games onto the PlayStion Store in a single day.
Leading off this week’s PlayStation Store update is Double Fine’s Stacking, perhaps the finest (AKA the only) game about Russian stacking dolls. Best of all, it’s free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. What a deal!
Also available this week is Explodemon, a platformer with an exploding hero that is totally not at all similar to last year’s XBLA game ‘Splosion Man.
Finally, Sony has made Tales From Space: About a Blob available to all PSN users and PopCap has fertilized the service with their hit game Plants vs Zombies.
The XBLA has some deals coming up in the next few days. From January 11th through the 17th, players can save up to 50% on Activision DLC, including Call of Duty Map Packs, Guitar Hero Add-ons, and Arcade titles, just to name a few. Details will be available on the Xbox Live Dashboard on January 11th. From the 18th to the 25th, EA will be having a sale as well – 50% off Arcade games and more. Details for the EA sale will be available on the Dashboard on the 18th. Xbox Live members can also try out Gold for free from January 28th to the 31st.
