The next iteration in the Battlefield franchise is going to arrive next month. If response from gamers during the beta period was any indication this game might do well once it is finally released. However before the title is released for everybody on March 17th, EA Access members will be able to get their hands on it a full five days early, on March 12th to be precise.
Electronic Arts announced today that EA Access subscribers will be able to play the full version of Battlefield Hardline for up to ten hours. That’s a generous time limit given that previously EA Access members have only been allowed up to six hours of gameplay.
During this period only the prologue and first chapter of the story will be accessible but all maps and modes in the multiplayer component will be available.
Battlefield Hardline joins titles like Dragon Age: Inquisition and Madden NFL 15 which were both offered to EA Access subscribers a few days early before their public release.
All progress made in the title during the trial period will carry over to the game once it launches. As an added incentive EA Access members will be able to purchase Battlefield Hardline at a 10 percent discount, $53.99 instead of $59.99, from the Xbox Games Store.
EA Access subscription costs $29.99 per year or $4.99 per month, it is only offered to Xbox One owners, and members can get trials of unreleased games, full EA titles in The Vault apart from discounts on digital content purchases.
