It added that EA Access will not only give gamers a "library of titles," but will enhance gaming experience with a number of rewards.

It has stated, "Get the red-carpet treatment with exclusive catalog-wide discounts, and in-game member benefits for some of our biggest franchises."

The games that have gone live on Steam include Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition, Need for Speed Heat, Need for Speed: Rivals, and Need for Speed (2016). Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and also a handful of games made by EA’s “indie development partners” including Unravel, Unravel II, Fe, and Sea of Solitude have also gone live on Steam.

According to a report in Slash Gear, many of Electronic Arts' PC games were earlier available on Steam. However, following the launch of EA's own storefront Origin, the games ceased to be available on the other platform.

However, last year EA announced that it had partnered with Valve to bring its games back to Steam. One of the first games released was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. At the time of its release, AEA said Apex Legends, FIFA 20 and Battlefield 5 will also be available on Steam in 2020.
