EA has officially announced the next free Xbox One games coming to the EA Access program and it’s a very impressive offering. Star Wars Battlefront, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and EA Sports UFC 2 will be making their way to the platform along with six PopCap titles including Heavy Weapon, Bejeweled 2, Bejeweled 3, Feeding Frenzy, Feeding Frenzy 2, and Zuma.


If you’re not already aware, EA Access is a program made for Xbox One users, allowing them to play upcoming games before their official release and with a bunch of free titles ready to be played. You can kind of call it EA’s version of Netflix. You pay a monthly or yearly fee and you can play all of the games in the vault whenever you like along with being given early access and exclusive discounts  certain EA titles.

The service costs around €4 a month or €25 a year, but, if you’re a fan of EA and EA Sports titles, it’s definitely worth it. PC users can try Origin, a Windows Version of Access, but unfortunately PlayStation 4 don’t have the option to join as it may be seen as too much competition to their own offering, Playstation Now.

Also, if that wasn’t enough, a Battlefield 1 EA Access demo is coming on October 13 for the subscribers of the EA Access program.

The demo will have allow players to play the yet to be released game for upto 10 hours to get you used to the game’s new engine and gameplay.
