Madden NFL 16 will kickoff on EA Access for Xbox One starting Feb. 2

Xbox One owners with an EA Access subscription will be able to play the full version of Madden NFL 16 starting on Feb. 2. This will be the 15th game that will be included in the EA Access Vault.

The addition of Madden NFL 16 will come just a few days before Super Bowl 50, which means EA Access subscribers will be able to simulate their own matches between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers before the real thing begins on Feb. 7.

EA says:

"Start your journey off the field in your own personal war room with the all-new Draft Champions mode. Choose which NFL stars and legends you want on your perfect team, and be the playmaker on the field with all-new controls that let you dominate in the battle for air supremacy. New QB mechanics including body-relative throws, plus touch and roll out passes provide you with unprecedented depth and control while under center. Combined with a new risk/reward catch and pass-defend system, get ready for the biggest WOW moments in franchise history.""Madden Ultimate Team puts you in control of your favorite NFL Legends as well as current stars. Compete in Online Head to Head Seasons, build your roster and control every aspect of your team, from team playbooks to uniforms you have the final word in every decision."

EA Access costs $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. It already has 14 games in the vault, including Dragon Age: Inquisition, Titanfall and more. Subscribers can also get 10% off the price of full EA digital games for the Xbox One, and also play trial versions of upcoming games like Unravel, Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 and UFC 2 several days before the full versions are released.

  • Lets release another sports game in the vault.....
  • Yes, lets. What game is Madden 16 keeping from the Vault? EA makes a lot of sports games - of course there are going to be a lot of them. In about six months time Battlefront will be in there too. What game isn't in there that you'd like to see?
  • What a baby. You must have figured out how these additions worked by now, right? No? Oh, then your ignorant crying is pretty easy to see.
  • We have a big boy over here.. Keep trash talking over the internet..
  • Do i need XBOX live membership to play this game
  • To play online yes. To get ea access and download the game to play offline? Nope.
  • I'm still waiting on Rory to get added, then I will sign up.
  • I'm waiting for Tiger too, in the mean time I'll play FIFA, Need for Speed and Battlefront.
  • Nothing really for me to play. Not a BF person, NFS has disappointed me for almost a decade now, and I'm not a soccer fan. I'd maybe play a few games on rare occasions, but nothing is as compelling as Rory, for me.
  • Have you played The Golf Club? Best golf sim in a long time, with thousands of courses.
  • Thank you Base God
  • I was waiting for this to get EA Access.
