If I play an EA Play early access game trial will my progress carry over?
EA Play members can download and try upcoming EA games before they’re released for a limited time. Yep – that’s right, you’ll be the first to play EA’s latest and greatest with an EA Play membership. And because you’re trying the real game, not a demo, your progress will carry over, so you can pick up where you left off if you decide to purchase the game.
Is EA Play available on other platforms?
Yes! EA Play is available for PC via Steam or Origin as well as on Xbox One and PlayStation®4. Please note: while EA Play is available on multiple platforms your membership is tied to the platform you joined on. If you joined on Steam, your Play List, member discount, and all other benefits will only be available here.
Can I play EA Play games on Mac?
EA Play is not available on Mac.
What if I want to cancel EA Play before my membership ends?
If you cancel your membership prior to your next monthly or annual billing date, you won't be charged for the following month or year. You'll be able to continue to play games, use your discount and jump into any available trials until your membership expires.
