Mass Effect Andromeda Is Going To Be Free To Download Soon With EA Access

EA has announced that Mass Effect Andromeda and Dead Space 3 are now coming soon for the EA Access Vault. This means you will be able to download and play these games if you still have an active EA Access membership on the Xbox One. The same applies to PC with Origin Access although Dead Space 3 is already available there.

In addition to Mass Effect Andromeda, EA Access will also offer early trials for Need for Speed Payback, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and The Sims 4.

The official announcement can be read below courtesy of EA.

Coming to EA Access and Origin Access:

Mass Effect: Andromeda – You’re the Pathfinder, the leader of a squad of explorers, and it’s your job to find a home for humanity in the alien Andromeda Galaxy. Bring together a team of colorful characters, discover new worlds and unravel the ultimate secret at the heart of this strange new system.

Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II Play First Trial – Play a part in a gaming experience inspired by forty years of timeless Star Wars™ films: dominate in rich multiplayer battles across all three eras (prequel, classic and new trilogy) or rise as a new hero and discover an emotionally gripping single-player story. Blast into hyperspace before launch day.

Need for Speed™: Payback Play First Trial – Divided by betrayal and reunited by revenge, you and your crew join forces to take down The House, a nefarious cartel that controls the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. Craft unique rides, escape the heat in epic police chases, and go head-to-head with other racers on- or off-road – all before launch for a full 10 hours.

Also coming to EA Access (Xbox One):

The Sims™ 4 Play First Trial – The smash-hit life sim is on its way to Xbox One! Create unique Sims, build their perfect home and help them pursue their dreams. It’s up to you who your Sims will become and the direction their stories take, and you can start writing their stories before launch day.

Dead Space™ 3 – You awake on a space station to find yourself hunted by crazed cultists and deadly reanimated corpses – and it gets worse from there. Journey across the icy planet of Tau Volantis, overcoming the violent wilderness and an army of deadly enemies to save mankind from the impending apocalypse. Now the entire Dead Space collection is available on EA Access and Origin Access!

Mass Effect Andromeda was released this March for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game received plenty of criticism before its launch due to the broken animation system. It was a laughing stock for the gaming community even before the official release and ended up becoming the worst selling game in the series prompting EA to end any support for the upcoming DLC.
