Some players have been able to jump into the Battlefield 1 EA and Origin Access trials a full day early.
The trial, which was set to open up tomorrow on October 13th, allows EA Access subscribers on Xbox One and Origin Access subscribers on PC to play Battlefield 1 for up to 10 hours. That timer only counts down while the game is open, not in real time, so you can spread that 10 hours out over several days. Four modes and five maps of the game’s multiplayer are accessible, along with two campaign missions, “Storm of Steel” and “Through the Mud and Blood.”
The early download was first discovered by several Reddit users, and was later confirmed by Eurogamer. To play, you’ll have to have an active subscription, though you don’t need to have placed a pre-order for the game yet?it is a trial, after all. Then, you’ll likely need to clear up some space: Users are reporting that the trial’s roughly a 45GB download on the Xbox One and a 50GB download on PC.
Should you choose to purchase the full game afterwards, all progress made in the trial will carry over. You’ll also get a 10 percent discount on the game, since Access members get that by default.
Battlefield 1 launches in full on October 21st.
