Starting today until March 9, all new EA Play subscribers will get their first month of service for only $1. The publisher revamped its online subscription service a few months ago, merging Origin Access and EA Access under the EA Play umbrella. EA’s subscription service also made the news last 2020 because of the company’s collaboration with Xbox which allowed all Xbox Game Pass subscribers access to EA Play at no extra expense.
EA Play, available on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, charges players $5 each month for an array of options. For instance, members receive a 10% discount on all EA digital purchases such as full games or DLC. EA Play also allows players to try out some new releases from EA for up to 10 hours.
Subscribers also gain additional access to exclusive rewards and a library of games published by EA. Most notably, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order was added to EA Play last November; by expansion, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can also enjoy the critically acclaimed game as well.
Encouraging more people to give the subscription an opportunity is a deal from EA, in which new EA Play members can join and receive their first month for a discounted price of $1. Once the first month ends, the monthly fee will return to the usual $5 price tag.
This deal concludes March 9 and only applies to new subscribers across all platforms. It’s worth mentioning, though, that whatever platform a player chooses is the one they must stick with. Hence, a PlayStation 5 user can’t take advantage of their EA Play membership on a PC.
EA Play at just a dollar is an amazing deal for new fans who are interested in what the service has to offer. Typically, a player can play the small fee, then spend the next 30 days playing their way through Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. Such an undertaking would specifically prove helpful for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 owners, provided the recent launch of Fallen Order’s next-gen update.
Hopefully, the next big EA-related news is about a specific date for EA Play’s functionality on PC with Xbox Game Pass. The two remarkable services were initially meant to combine on PC back in December. At the last minute, however, the companies pushed back this availability to an unidentified date this year. Neither Microsoft nor EA have mentioned an update on the matter since then.
