If you find yourself this week with an Xbox One and a lot of free time and hard drive space, EA may have the answer. The company's EA Access subscription service, which lets you play reasonably new games from a gradually expanding vault on Xbox One, is going free for a week on Microsoft's console for Xbox Live Gold members.

That means you can download games like Battlefield Hardline, Titanfall, and Dragon Age: Inquisition through the EA Access Hub app and play them in full for a week. EA Sports games like Madden NFL and FIFA are also in the vault, though the most recent versions haven't yet been added to the service — you'll have to make do with the 2015 editions.

The promotion runs from Tuesday through Sunday. EA Access normally costs $4.99 a month or $29.99 for a year, and also gives you a 10 percent discount on new EA games and lets you play them a week before the release date. The company launched a similar service for PC games this month called Origin Access.
