If you are one of the tens of people who are actually paying for EA Play, I have some bad news for you.

EA has announced that it will be increasing its subscription prices on both EA Play and Play Pro next month. First noticed by GamesIndustry.biz, emails went out to subscribers detailing the new prices. The changes go into effect on May 10.

If you are on the base tier of EA Play, your costs will go up $1/month, from $5 to $6. If you pay yearly, it went up from $30 to $40 a year. On this tier, you get to access pre-release trials of new titles along with a collection of older titles. Also, it bares mentioning that this tier is also included with PC Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate (not Xbox Game Pass).

If you chose the Pro tier, you’ll be paying $17/month or $120/year. This tier grants you access to premium editions of some of the newly released games before launch along with collection from the base tier.

GI.Biz pointed out that the changes in prices were attributed to reflect currency value and market value.

Honestly, I don’t know anybody who’s actually subscribed to EA Play outside of those of us who use Game Pass.

Do you sub to EA Play? Please let me know if you do.
