Microsoft Store is now selling subscriptions for EA Access gaming service

This week, Microsoft UK began offering a free 12-month subscription to EA Access with purchases of its Xbox One - a deal that, so far, hasn't made it Stateside. But Microsoft's relationship with EA Access in the US did just get a bit cozier.

As Major Nelson (also known as Microsoft's Larry Hryb, revealed today, the Microsoft Store has now begun selling EA Access subscriptions for the first time.

EA Access offers users unlimited access to a regularly updated library of games known as the 'Vault', and is available exclusively for Microsoft's Xbox One. Games currently available for unlimited play include FIFA 15, Battlefield 4, Peggle 2, Need for Speed Rivals, Titanfall, and others, all adding up to over £400 worth of titles.

The subscription also allows gamers to download upcoming games before they're generally released, and includes an additional 10% discount on all EA digital game downloads purchased for the Xbox One.

You can buy a 12-month subscription for EA Access from the Microsoft Store for $29.99, available now.
