EA isn't very good at keeping a secret. Earlier this week, alert Xbox One gamers noticed some Xbox Live Arcade games they didn't own appearing in their Ready to Install section, namely Feeding Frenzy
and Heavy Weapon
. Later, an ad briefly appeared on the EA Access app showing a slew of PopCap games headed to the Vault. It was removed shortly after. Needless to say, what most of us forum hounds already knew has officially been announced — EA has added six backwards compatible PopCap titles to the EA Access library, which they're calling the "Throwback Pack."
I think we all remember these oldies-but-goodies from the XBLA days:
The six games are already available for members via the EA Access app.
In other news, EA has confirmed that we'll be seeing Mirror's Edge Catalyst
, EA SPORTS UFC 2
and the long-awaited Star Wars Battlefront
hit the Vault before the end of 2016. Battlefield 1
's Play First Trial is also scheduled to start in just a few days on October 13th. After that? We'll just have to wait and see.
