Streamer’s Guide to EA Play

calendar1 Last Updated

EA Play, which used to be known as EA Access, is Electronic Arts subscription-based games library. It currently has over 70 titles available instantly across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Though it may not be the best value for money, EA Play will be included in the Game Pass subscription as of November 10th, adding a lot more value to your existing subscription.

Let’s have a look at the top 4 games to stream on Twitch from EA Play, which is proven to help you grow your audience and engagements on stream!

Top Games on EA Play

  1. The Sims 4

    Sims 4

    The Sims 4 is a life simulation game with a sandbox twist. You’ll be able to design your own home, characters, and essentially an entire community. You progress through the game by completing tasks and basically just surviving! The replayability of The Sims is endless. Once you’ve done everything, you can possibly start again.

    Given the nature of the game, it can be quite tiresome to watch for people not devoted to this universe, so this category is very low in terms of saturation as the larger streamers will tend to stay away.

    However, for those of you trying to grow your presence on the platform, the community on Twitch (not just for this title but for the entire franchise) is a large and stable one. You’ll find yourself building your new family home alongside your Twitch community.

  2. Star Wars Battlefront 2

    Battlefront II

    There is no doubt you know more than an ounce about the Star Wars universe, but for those of you who do not know this game – this is an action shooter set within the Star Wars universe. You’ll find yourself playing through 12 different game modes in a massive online experience with up to 40 players.

    Though the title was released in 2017, the audience on Twitch is almost as strong as ‘The Force’ itself! This category is never heavily saturated, so it is easy for its following of over 1 million to browse. You’ll easily find yourself the highest-placed streamer if you have an established community and can average anywhere from 10-30 viewers.

  3. Skate 3

    Skate 3

    It only seems fitting to conclude this on a high, and Skate 3 is by far the best on there. As the title would suggest, this is a skateboarding game! You can play in single-player or online, progress in the campaign, and even go head-to-head in competitive battles.

    Since its release in 2010, it has become a new generation’s own THPS. The community around it may be small, but they are committed to this title and always looking for the next Skate streamer!

    Though the category may appear to be dead for those who have established their audience, Skate is still a great game to establish a community, especially if skateboarding sparks your interest.
