The news comes by way of Microsoft marketing executive Aaron Greenberg, who wrote on Twitter: "Hot new @EAMaddenNFL 16 announced, play it early with @EAAccess, only on #XboxOne"
Madden NFL 16 launches this August. It's also coming to PlayStation 4, as well as last-generation consoles like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. EA Access, however, is available only on Xbox One.
The subscription service costs $5/month or $30/year. In addition to getting to play upcoming EA games ahead of everyone else, subscribers get access to free games in The Vault (there are currently eleven) and a 10 percent discount on all EA digital content.
