EA confirmed Wednesday that its upcoming subscription-based gaming service ‘EA Access‘ will cost £3.99 a month to UK subscribers.
Currently in beta for a limited number of Xbox One players, the new scheme will allow subscribers to download a range of titles and play them unlimited, as long as their recurring subscription is active.
Titles available during the beta include FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4 with more titles to be announced.
Members of EA Access will also receive 10% off most EA titles available to download on Xbox One.
FIFA 14 is at the top of the UK chart for a sixth week. Now available on two new formats, FIFA 14 has 21% more in sales compared to FIFA 13 against the same week last year, in which FIFA 13 was also first.
The top seven remain in place, including Call of Duty: Ghosts (-55%) at second, with just 4,000 copies separating it from Assassin’s Creed Black Flag (-50%) at third.
Grand Theft Auto V (-64%) is hanging around at fifth in the chart this week, and could go on to become the best selling game of all time in the UK within the next three months.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (-42%) is at eighth as it swaps places with Just Dance 2014 (-60%) at ninth. WWE 2k14 completes the top ten.
Microsoft’s Xbox One arrived last week claiming twice as many sales of the Xbox 360 in its launch week back in 2008. The console arrived with more than a dozen launch titles, including FIFA 14 and Forza Motorsport 5 bundles.
EA’s FIFA 14 (+328%) swaps with COD: Ghosts (-16%), from second to first.
Battlefield 4 (+134%) jumps from fifth to third as Assassin’s Creed IV (+123%) holds at fourth.
FIFA 14 is the best-selling game in the UK during the last week of September. Released on eight platforms, including the incoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the game takes a -24% cut in comparison to FIFA 13 week-one sales.
The record-breaking GTA V (-83%) drops to second, yet scores enough sales in it’s second week to rank eighteenth against all week-one releases to date.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (-2%) takes third, with a minor dip in sales pushing it up three places.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 (-46%) and The Last of Us (-41%) drop two places to fourth and fifth respectively.
Disney Infinity gains two places and Splinter Cell: Blacklist drops two, ahead of Saints Row IV and Diablo III at eighth and ninth.
Rayman Legends (+34%) turns positive sales into a top ten finish after price promotion from retailers.
