Electronic Arts announced today that a relatively new title has joined the list of titles that are free to play via the Xbox One service EA Access. Called Battlefield Hardline, the game provides a cops and robbers take on the infamous Battlefield franchise. The title was released earlier this year in March and merely seven months after it first emerged on the same, it’s going to enter the EA Access Vault.
For those who are unaware, EA Access Vault is a service that’s only available to Xbox One owners. For $4.99 per month members can access the vault and play any of the games contained in it without any extra charge, so even if you didn’t purchase a copy of Hardline when it launched, if you have an Xbox One you can now play it by simply paying $5.
The game earned a considerable amount of applause when it first arrived on the scene particularly for its rather unique take on the entire Battlefield franchise. Currently there are more than a dozen games included in the vault such as Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Members also get access to pre-release trials of selected games, the trial for new Need for Speed beings October 29th and for Star Wars Battlefront on November 12th, and they get a 10 percent discount on all purchases made through the EA store as well as add-on content in Xbox Games Store.
