Madden NFL 17 now in EA Access Vault (Xbox)

Posted 02-23-2017 by AmAmX at 07:40 PM
A lot of deals flying around for Madden NFL 17 - but if you have EA access - it was just added to the Vault and can be played for free.

If you don't have EA Access, it's 30$ a year, but there were quite a few deals lately at ~21$-23$.

A little off topic but quick question:

I bought a Madden 16 Xbox One bundle in Nov 2015 and it came with a 12 month EA Access code that I never had the urge to use. I tried to use it today and it's giving me random error codes and a "Something went wrong" message. Does anyone know if these codes expire? I searched every square inch of the card and it says nothing about expiration...

did you ever activate EA Access before? some people report that if the first activation was done through Microsoft, or through the console menu, than later on redeeming a code causes trouble.

Never redeemed a code for it, I just did a free weekend trial they had months ago.

I chatted with MS through their support page and they said there are issues redeeming codes right now and to try again later. Their status page says it is up though so I dunno what to think.

It seems like horrible timing if true but I'll give it another day.
Has anyone redeemed a code for anything in the last few hours?
What sucks is I had a Gwent Beta code I just gave away yesterday or else I would test it with that.

I've been quite "Anti-Madden" for a number of years now, but Madden 17 is pretty damn good. Passing is pretty cheese, as players will routinely get a mystery burst of speed to catch what should be overthrown balls if their movement was consistent prior to the ball nearing them and the leaping ability and one hand catches can be pretty ridiculous at times. Overall the game is pretty fun, especially with the relocation feature in franchise.

I would try to redeem it through your xbox.com account on your pc. most of the time it always works better for me. if it doesn't work you can always open a complaint with customer service to get it resolved.
