Black is now Free on EA Access

Black is a very old Original Xbox game and it's now free on EA Access. That means any players that have the pass on Xbox One consoles can now hop into the game and enjoy the full experience. This is however a special release since I believe it's the first Original Xbox game added to the program, though not the first on one of the modern subscription services. It joins a long list of vault titles as a free game for unlimited play and enjoyment. Simply select the free with EA Access option to download the game from the store page on console or on the Xbox site and play it regularly. This removes the cost for the game granting full access to the entire core package. The download size is currently 2.09 GB so not too large of an install size. It should also be noted that this is a Xbox Backwards Compatible title.

Black is a classic EA title where players join a special tactical squad under the cloak of complete anonymity and deniability to protect the US from foreign as well as domestic threats. It answers to no one allowing it to carry out covert operations around the globe. It's a single player game featuring intense 5.1 surround sound. It's a very interesting addition to the EA Access vault and could possibly signal other classic titles arriving there in the future. There have already been a number of Xbox 360 games along with many Xbox One games with the value of this subscription only continuing to grow over time.
