NHL 15 will be on of the first games eligible for a 10% discount on EA’s new service.

For just $5 a month (or $30 per year), Xbox One players who subscribe to EA Access will receive 10% discounts to new games and access to the EA Vault –  a collection of previous popular EA games.

You’ll be able to purchase EA Access straight from the Xbox One consoles, or a downloadable code that can be purchased at Gamestop. If you elect to cancel the service game progress and achievements will remain, but the game itself will be revoked.

The service itself is reminiscent of the EA Sports Season Ticket service, that gave players similar early access to games and discounts. Though EA Access just expands that past just sports games.

The service is currently in its beta stages, and those who are part of the beta will receive the first four games of the EA Vault  — Fifa 14, Madden 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4. While all games will be fully available, unfortunately it seems no DLC will be included with any of the titles. New games will be added in the future, but EA doesn’t give a specific time-frame of exactly when that will be.

You'll be able to view all the included services through an app available on the Xbox Store.

Those who subscribe will also receive free-trials of games up to five days before release, along with the 10% discount on the full game.
