Peter Moore Says EA Access Vault Will Be ‘Permanent’ and ‘Substantial’
EA Access launched last week for Xbox One, and while the games inside the Vault are pretty impressive, we're still waiting for more to be added to it. Speaking with CVG, Peter Moore assures us that the Vault will be worth the price of admission.
"The Vault will get its share of triple-A titles," Moore says in the CVG piece. "We haven't made any announcements to that extent about exactly when, where and how, but the Vault will be substantial." Right now the Vault only offers what's pictured above, so the sooner these games are released to the Vault, the better EA Access will be for it.
Moore says that there is no concrete strategy in place for implementing games into the Vault, explaining that "new game additions will be determined by franchise and timing. We have to make decisions along that way, so there's no template, like 30 days after a game ships it goes into the Vault."
The coolest piece of info he dropped is how long each game with stay in the vault: forever. "I think one of the key things is that once a game goes into the Vault it stays there," Moore said. "It's not going to be taken out, that's a commitment we've made."
EA Access could become one of the best ideas EA has ever had, but they better not take their sweet time building the service up, or the gaming majority will lose patience with it quickly. Basically, when will the old BioWare RPGs go in there? We want us some Jade Empire.
