Free EA Access Codes Apparently Being Sent Out By Microsoft To XBL Subscribers
While EA has a deal with Sony to promote Star Wars Battlefront on PlayStation 4, it seems like Microsoft is fully intent on doing its own promotion. After their stealth marketing stunt, some users on the Xbox One subreddit have apparently received free EA access codes for one month, giving them the opportunity to play DICE's game earlier: EA Access users will be able to start playing from November 12, albeit only for up to 10 hours.
The message is apparently sent to your Xbox Live account, so you might want to check out your inbox there.
EA Access (which is not available on PlayStation 4, with Sony repeatedly saying that it doesn't see the value in it) normally costs $4.99 per month, giving you unrestricted access to some older games like Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Titanfall, FIFA 15, Battlefield 4, Madden NFL 15, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, NHL 15, UFC, Need for Speed Rivals, NBA Live 15, Peggle 2, FIFA 14 and Madden 2014.
However, you can also play up to 10 hours of the latest games such as Star Wars Battlefront, the new Need for Speed, NBA Live 16, NFL 16, NHL 16, FIFA 16 and Rory Mc Ilroy PGA Tour, with progress carrying over if you decide to buy the full versions of these games. Moreover, subscribers get an additional 10% content on all purchases of Electronic Arts games via the Xbox One store; if you want to know more, head to the official site.
