Several other games have been added since, including the Dead Space and Mass Effect series.
EA Play subscribers get 10% off all games and DLC, access to a collection of games and get to try new games for 10 hours. In addition to all these remaining benefits, EA Play subscribers will start to get unique drops in different games. For example, players in Star Wars: Squadrons will get the Interceptor Elegance Helmet and the Ashen Monarch Starfighter Paint Job Set.
