EA's subscription service, that continues to grow with new titles added each month, adds one more to the list: the deliciously rogue Battlefield game that doesn't feel like Battlefield but is still wonderfully badass, Bad Company.

How EA Access works is players pay a monthly fee, $4.99 a month - 29.99 for the whole year, and instantly gain access to quite a few perks: Access to the EA Vault to play games instantly including brand new releases, exclusive early access to upcoming titles, free trial periods, 10% discount on games, and more.
