All of these have amassed a huge number of gamers eager to experience the year's new title and relive the glory of sports action.

It Takes Two, proved that co-op games can be as engaging and compelling as the best story-driven and action-adventure games out there. That's because It Takes Two combines all of these genres into one fantastic co-op title. Evidently, why it has received hundreds of awards across all facets of the game. So, if you haven't played this game with a friend yet, we highly recommend it. Because titles that are successful across the board, like this, do not come by very often.

Though it may have been released a couple of years ago, players can't rave enough about the love story in It Takes Two. Consequently, another reason to play it with a significant other who may or may not be into gaming. As It Takes Two will undoubtedly get you both interested in this game's narrative and fun mini-game and puzzle-style gameplay. Due to this fact, It Takes Two continues to be one of the best games on EA Play, still in December 2022.

2. GRID Legends

For those looking for some high-octane action, GRID Legends is where it's at on EA Play. Released in 2022, the game features over 120 cars, from big rigs, hypercars, to open-wheel racers. On top of that, the game is outfitted with some of the most beautiful tracks in racing, 130 of them to be precise. So you can take on the streets of London, Paris, and even Indianapolis Motor Speedway. All of which you get to experience in the epic and cinematic Career Mode.

Though, if racing against AI isn't your thing then it's worth considering online multiplayer. That includes cross-play functionality as well. What's more, is that you can use the Race Creator to custom-design tracks for you and your friends to race on. Allowing you to make the most daring jumps, drift on the edge of the world, or race at the speed of light at night. Without a doubt, GRID Legends is one of the best games on EA Play in December, and some of the most heart-pumping racing action you can have.

1. Battlefield 2042

The number one title that has seen gamers flooding to join EA Play in December 2022, is none other than Battlefield 2042. We know what you may be thinking, hasn't that game been long and forgotten? Well, quite the opposite in fact. Since arguably the worst launch of a AAA game we've seen since No Man's Sky, Battlefield 2042 has pretty much made a full recovery. A huge part of that is due to the fact that EA has been hard at work to improve their latest and most famous FPS to a playable and enjoyable state.

It may come as news to your ears, but Battlefield 2042 is running better than ever. Furthermore, now it's finally reached what it's always envisioned itself to be – pure battlefield chaos. The maps are massive and diverse, not to mention inflicted with an onslaught of weather. As a result, it's hands down one of the best games you can get on EA Play in December.
