One of the best perks of an EA Access subscription is that you can play games from an ever-growing catalog–“The Vault,” as EA calls it–of free games. This catalog expands further this week with the launch of The Sims 4, which is now in the library.
The Sims 4 is not a new game, as it was originally released on PC back in 2014. The console edition is newer, having been released in November 2017. The life-simulation game was garnered mixed reviews, with GameSpot’s scoring it a 6/10 for PC.
Whatever the case, it’s a big-name franchise that console players may be happy to see added to the Vault to play for free on Xbox One. The Sims 4 was already released in the Origin Access vault of freebies. Additionally, all of The Sims 4’s expansions are 10 percent off.

In addition to free games, EA/Origin Access members can play some games (but not all) ahead of launch; most of the time, subscribers get a five-day headstart. Another benefit is that subscribers save 10 percent on all EA digital content, which knocks down the price of a $60 game to $54. The service costs $5/month or $30/year.
