Two Battlefield Games Officially Join EA Access’ Vault

by Robert Workman


It wasn’t too long ago that Electronic Arts and Microsoft made Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 backward compatible titles for the Xbox One. However, that wasn’t enough, as the team really wanted to go the extra mile for fans of the series – so now they’re available through a different program.

The Battlefield Twitter account revealed today that both Battlefield 3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 have been added to the EA Access Vault. Subscribers can find the games in their downloadable game libraries and add them any way they see fit. Those that aren’t EA Access subscribers can still enjoy the games via backward compatibility, but will still need to track down copies.

Battlefield 3 was a much-enjoyed chapter of the series, despite its flimsy storyline for the single player campaign. Fans enjoyed the multiplayer, and with servers still up, they’re still able to, even in the face of superior games like Battlefield 1.

Meanwhile, Bad Company 2 is the follow-up to the side series that originally debuted on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 a few years ago, following a rag-tag group of soldiers as they attempt to bankroll a little money for themselves while completing missions. While the sequel is a bit more serious in tone, it’s just as enjoyable as the original game, and also has multiplayer options.

EA Access fans, enjoy the additions!
