EA Access for Xbox One adds six PopCap games, more titles coming by end of 2016

Electronic Arts has added the Throwback Pack to its EA Access service for the Xbox One console. Subscribers will be able to play six Xbox 360 games from its PopCap studio on the Xbox One, via its backwards compatibility feature, for free.

The games that are included in the pack are Heavy Weapon, Bejeweled 2, Bejeweled 3, Feeding Frenzy, Feeding Frenzy 2 and Zuma. With these new additions, EA Access now has 31 games in its Vault that can be played for free with a subscription of $4.99 a month or $29.99 for 12 months for Xbox One owners.

In a blog post, EA stated that it will be adding even more older Xbox One games to the Vault by the end of 2016, including EA Sports UFC 2, Mirror's Edge Catalyst and Star Wars Battlefront. On October 13, EA Access subscribers will also be able to play a free 10-hour trial for Battlefield 1 before the full version of that first-person shooter is released on October 18 for Early Enlister buyers and October 21 for all other players.
