EA Access On PS4
Rocket Arena is now free for EA Access PS4 subscribers, it has been revealed. Less than three weeks after its release at a mid-range retail RRP, EA has confirmed that Rocket Arena is now free – assuming you subscribe to its EA Access service.
Just this past week, Rocket Arena was heavily discounted both at physical retail and on the PlayStation Store. As such, we probably shouldn’t be too surprised that EA have put Rocket Arena on its EA Access service.
Original Story: We did say in our review that Rocket Arena would fare much better as a free-to-play title and boy is it determined to reach that price point as quickly as possible. There are bombas and then there’s this one. Just 15 days after its release on PlayStation 4, you can save a whopping 83% and grab the base version of Rocket Arena for £4.24/$5.09.
This deal will stick around until 20th August 2020 so you’ve got plenty of time to take advantage, but then there’s also the Mythic Edition which has seen a significant price reduction. This one comes in at £8.74/$9.99 and packs in loads of digital goodies such as outfits, trails, and premium currency.
You can grab the basic version through the PlayStation Store here and the Mythic Edition via this link. We don’t think we’ve ever seen such a huge price drop this soon after launch so you might as well jump on board and see what’s what with Rocket Arena.

Making Rocket Arena free to EA Access subscribers and lowering the price for non-subscribers underlines a deeper strategy. With EA announcing that the online multiplayer title will be following a revolving season model. This means that new content is expected to be released on a monthly basis.
No doubt however for those early full price adopters, this surely leaves a sour taste in their mouths. A 3 vs 3 competitive arena shooter that is equally inspired by Overwatch and Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros, Rocket Arena is the latest title to come from EA’s indie label, EA Originals.
