What is EA Access?

Should you subscribe the EA Access program?

FIFA 20 EA Access Guide for FIFA Ultimate Team

EA Access is a subscription paid program exclusively for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners. With it, gamers can get exclusive offers for Electronic Arts video games.

The EA Access, released for the first time ever on August 2014, offers to subscribers three main advantages:

1 EARLY ACCESS TO THE FULL GAME
Subscribers can download FIFA 20 earlier and play it up to 10 hours. It is possible to carry forward the progress and achievements.

2 FREE ACCESS TO GAMES
EA Access holders have free access, any time and as long they keep being subscribers of the service, to a selection of games ‘The Vault’. At this moment, it includes FIFA 19 and other previous editions.

3 10% DISCOUNT ON EA DIGITAL PURCHASES
EA Access subscribers pay 10% less to buy FUT 20 packs and also get a 10% discount in the full FIFA 20 game, as well in any other EA digital content.


 
 
 

Early Access

How to play FIFA 20 first
 
• Try new EA games days before official release with EA Access Play First Trials – no purchase necessary.
• Love what you played? Buy the full game and your progress carries over.
• Want to know what the hype is about? Jump into a Play First Trial even after release day.

 

Early Access

 

What is included?
Subscribers can download FIFA 20 full game before the date release. But there is more. EA Access holders also get early access to other EA Sports titles.

What are the early access features?
Through FIFA 20 early access, subscribers may play the full game before the game hits the stores, including on line play and FIFA Ultimate Team features. However, there is a 10 hours total limit of game play. It is possible to play, trade, sell, buy cards and FIFA Points, which can be a huge advantage over the other players without early access. Saved games and achievements/trophies subscribers earn during Early Access, while connected to EA Servers, will unlock once they purchase and log into the EA Servers with the final version of the game.

Which ones are the early access dates?
FIFA 20 EA Access early access starts at September 19, which is eight days before the official FIFA 20 release date.

How to get the early access?
After buying this service, subscribers just need to download the game through the service’s dashboard.

EA Access Frequently Asked Questions

What else the community wants to know?
 

Q: When do I need to buy a subscription that works with FIFA 20?
A: At least before the game release, if you want to play in the early access. Discounts’ on packs are always valid.

Q: What happens when my subscription ends?
A: In order to keep working after this period, a renew is required. By default, it is made automatically.

Q: How do I cancel my subscription?
A: This can be done via the Xbox and PlayStation website or via console. You need to log into your EA account and locate ‘Account and Privacy‘ or the Subscriptions Column on the console’s website.

Q: What happens to DLC I’ve purchased if I cancel my EA Access membership?
A: You’ll keep any games or content you buy with your membership discount. However, you’ll lose access to The Vault if you cancel your membership. If you bought DLC specifically for a Vault game, you’ll need to either purchase the associated base game separately or renew your membership to access your DLC.

Q: Do I need to have an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus subscription to join EA Access?
A: Nope, you can join up with a free Xbox Live Silver account. That said, you’ll need an Xbox Live Gold / PlayStation Plus account to play any multiplayer games included in EA Access.

Q: Does my EA Access account work on multiple Xbox One / PlayStation 4 consoles?
A: Yes – your membership is attached to your gamertag / PSN ID, so you can use your account on any Xbox One / PlayStation 4 console where you’ve logged in.

Q: Can everyone in my house use my account?
A: If you’ve designated your Xbox/PlayStation as your home console, anyone with an account that uses that console can download, install, and play Vault games through your membership. Trials of new EA games and your 10% member discount will only be accessible through your specific Xbox Live / PlayStation account.

Q: Is FIFA 20 EA Access transferable?
A: No.

Q: If I have an EA Access subscription but don’t buy the game, how long I will be able to play FIFA 20 with the early access?
A: Usually until the full game release date or until you have played 10 hours, whichever comes sooner.

Q: What are pre-release trials? Will my progress carry over?
A: With an EA Access membership, you can download and play upcoming EA games before they’re released for a limited time. Because you’re playing the real game, not a demo, any progress you make will carry over, so you can pick up where you left off starting on launch day if you decide to purchase the game.

Q: Are games streamed or downloaded?
A: The games you want are downloaded straight to your system to ensure the best possible performance, and can stay there as long as you have your EA Access membership (or until it’s time to clear out your hard drive for more games).

Q: How do the trials of new EA games work?
A: As a part of your membership, you get exclusive access to EA’s newest games days before they’re released. Your progress even carries over to the full game if you decide to buy, so you can pick up where you left off.

Q: How long does each trial last?
A: Trials typically last up to 10 hours. Burn through all that playtime at once or spread it out over days – the timer only ticks down when the trial is running. The trial timer will continue to count down even when the game is running in the background, so make sure to quit your trial completely when you aren’t playing.

Q: What is the difference between the demo and the FIFA 20 EA Access trial?
A: Demos are stand-alone chunks of a game meant to give you a taste of what it offers. But with EA Access trials, you’re playing the real game for a limited time before its release date. And if you purchase FIFA 20 once it releases, you can pick up right where you left off – your progress and stats carry over.

Q: Can I buy FUT 20 packs during the early access?
A: Yes. This feature is active in FIFA 20 early access version.

Q: Will FIFA Points be for sale during early access period?
A: Yes. Players who have FIFA 20 EA Access for will be able to purchase FIFA Points during the early access trial.

Q: Can I transfer my FIFA 19 Points to FIFA 20 Points during the early access period?
A: Yes, you can. However, this is only between Xbox One and Xbox One and between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4. If players choose to not play the full version of FIFA 20, they will not be able to transfer their FIFA Points back to FIFA 19.

Q: Should I buy the EA Access? What do you think?
A: It depends on your profile. If you play more EA games besides FIFA, it may be a good decision.
