With Battlefield 1's release coming up, EA has now provided more details on the game's Xbox One and PC Play First Trial for EA/Origin Access subscribers.

A 10-hour trial for the game comes to Xbox One and PC on October 13 for EA and Origin Access subscribers, more than a week before the game becomes available publicly. There will be five maps and four modes (of the full game's nine maps and six modes) featured in the trial version to start. The full list is below. You can also check out two campaign missions, Storm of Steel and Through Mud and Blood.

As with other Play First Trials, all progress--for multiplayer and single-player--carries forward. EA/Origin Access subscribers also save 10 percent on EA digital content, so they can buy the full game for $54 instead of $60.

Additionally, everyone who plays Battlefield 1 through its Play First Trial in the October 13-20 window will get a Trench Raider dog tag. You don't have to accomplish anything to get the dog tag, as all you need to do is log in. People who play for all 10 hours before October 20 will receive a Battlepack for the full game.

Battlefield 1's Early Enlister edition, which costs $80 and comes with other add-ons, unlocks on October 18. At this time, the remaining four maps and two modes will become available to Play First Trial players, though if you've already spent 10 hours in the game by then you're out of luck.

EA Access is offered for $5/month or $30 year, while Origin Access is only available at a $5 monthly rate. No version of the subscription service is available on PlayStation 4.
