New Xbox One Bundle Features Madden NFL 16 and One-Year of EA Access
Get your game on before the season starts with this 1TB Xbox One bundle that features Madden NFL 16 and a full year subscription to EA Access.
The Xbox Wire has unveiled the newest Xbox One bundle, and it's all about the gridiron. This $399 set throws together a sleek Xbox One featuring a 1TB hard drive, a downloadable copy of Madden NFL 16 and a one-year subscription to EA Access (a $30 value). It's interesting to see EA Access being thrown into the mix, as it actually gives you early access to Madden NFL 16 before it launches. This subscription-based services lets you download and play EA Access' growing list of games as much as you'd like, as long as your subscription doesn't run out. Even if it does, your save data still remains on your system if you decide to buy the game for yourself.
Interesting enough, an early version Madden NFL 16 will be playable on EA Access starting on Aug. 20, despite the game launching for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Aug. 25. We should note that the bundle's download code for Madden NFL 16 won't go live until Aug. 25 as well, but it's still nice to be able to play the game prior to its release. EA Access has a variety of other games to play and it offers a 10 percent discount on the Xbox Games Store for all of EA's digital content (including DLC). There are some awesome games in EA Access' digital library, including Titanfall, Battlefield 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The Madden NFL 16 Xbox One bundle launches on Aug. 18 and will cost $399.
In related news, Xbox head Phil Spencer confirmed that EA Access will have Star Wars Battlefront when it launches on Nov. 17. Better yet, EA Access subscribers will be playing Battlefront before it hits store shelves.
