Madden NFL 15 joins the EA Access Vault
Play the latest Madden for free on Xbox One
With the NFL offseason officially underway -- and what a crazy start it has been -- now comes the painful wait until next year's kickoff (at least February, the most painful month for sports fans, is finally over and we now have baseball). But just because the on-the-field action is over doesn't mean the season has to end for fans of Madden.
Madden NFL 15 has officially been added to the EA Access Vault of games. If you're a paying member of the monthly service, you can now play the newest entry in the Madden series -- or any of hte other games offered through The Vault -- for as long as you want.
For those unfamiliar, EA Access is a monthly subscription service that for $4.99 a month (or $29.99 for the year), grants members access to an "evolving collection" of EA games on Xbox One. Titles currently available in The Vault include EA Sports UFC, Battlefield 4, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, NBA LIVE 15, Need for Speed Rivals, FIFA 14, Peggle 2, and Madden NFL 25.
In addition to a library of games, EA Access provides 10 percent on all EA digital purchases on Xbox One, trials of upcoming EA games before they're even released, and early access to soon-to-be-released titles. It was recently revealed that EA Access subscribers will be able to play Battlefield Hardline five days ahead of its release, although the preview is capped at 10 hours.
