Battlefield 4 Temporarily Removed From EA Access

EA Access

EA Access, the video game subscription service that officially launched on Monday for the Xbox One has temporarily removed Battlefield 4. The service uses an app to allow players to download games available in “The Vault” by paying either $5 a month or $30 annually. The current list of games features Madden 25, Fifa 14, Peggle 2, and should have Battlefield 4 with more titles to arrive in the future. Unfortunately, Battlefield 4 has escaped from The Vault and players are no longer able to access the game under their active subscription.

Last night I decided to give EA Access a shot and signed up for $30 yearly subscription. On paper, EA Access seems like a great value and if I’m to comment on its service it makes sense for me to be a paying customer. This afternoon I made an attempt to download Battlefield 4 via the EA Access app only to find I must pay $44.95 for the game. While I appreciate the 10% discount awarded to me as an active subscriber, I’m upset that the game is no longer free. I reached out to EA via Twitter hoping for a response.

The good news is Battlefield 4 was not removed from The Vault. Now we just have to wait until the issue is fixed before we can shoot each other in the face. Thank you EA for the quick response.
