Battlefield 5, A Way Out Poised To Join EA Access

EA Access isn't available on PlayStation 4 just yet, but EA is already teasing two games that could be waiting for PS4 owners when the service arrives.

In a trailer posted on YouTube, EA runs through all of the titles EA Access subscribers can enjoy currently, as well as two titles that aren't available right now. These two games – Battlefield 5 and A Way Out — have their logos shown in a brief blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment toward the start of the trailer before eventually getting longer clips later on. And call us crazy, but it would it be a bit odd to show these games off in an EA Access trailer if they weren't coming to the service at some point.


The big question is, when?

EA Access isn't set to launch on PlayStation 4 until sometime in July, which is about a month and a half away. It's entirely possible EA could hold the addition of these two titles for the PlayStation 4 until the service officially goes live on that platform, adding a little Emeril Lagasse "bam!" to the occasion. Then again, EA also has PC and Xbox One subscribers to consider, so seeing Battlefield 5 and A Way Out come to Access before the PS4 launch also seems within the realm of possibility.

Whatever the case, it'll be nice to see these games get a little more attention.

A Way Out was always going to be overlooked by many due to its forced co-op play, which required that you team up with someone to complete the campaign. While the game did try to address this issue by adding a free "friend pass" feature, it still meant having someone you could perfectly sync up with in terms of your gaming schedule and story progress. Hopefully A Way Out's arrival in EA Access gives more people a chance to experience it.


And wow, did Battlefield 5 ever have some bad luck. It came out in the second half of November 2018 while the world was still very much obsessed with Red Dead Redemption 2. It launched without its battle royale mode, which was a major selling point of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 the month prior. And then fellow EA developer Respawn Entertainment ate its battle royale lunch by releasing Apex Legends, burying any curiosity about how the Battlefield team might tackle the genre. Battlefield 5's saving grace is its campaign, so if you're worried about this trend of shooters doing away with their single player stories, you might want to show Battlefield 5 a little love when it hits EA Access.

We'll keep you up to speed should we learn more about when Battlefield 5 and A Way Out might drop into EA Access.
