EA Access will be free for 10 days for all Xbox Live Gold subscribers, according to reputable video game deal site Cheap Ass Gamer, which has published a message from EA on Twitter.

"Want to share EA Access with a friend who couldn't make it to EA Play? All Xbox Live Gold members can check it out free from June 12-22, 2016. All they have to do is download the EA Access app on Xbox to get started," it reads.

From its wording, it seems the message was intended to be for those attending EA's pre-E3 event. As previously announced, EA won't have booths at E3 2016, and will instead host EA Play events in London and LA.

EA Play will include a press conference, gameplay demos for media, and the opportunity for the public to come and play its latest titles. The full schedule can be found here.

Tickets will need to be reserved in advance due to limited space, but they will be free. Those interested should sign up to the mailing list on the EA Play website to stay informed on when they're available.

Subscribers are being given the opportunity to reserve tickets early as part of the Early Bird promotion. This early access period will end on May 19, when signups will be open to the public. Emails with the necessary details are being sent out to eligible members.

EA has confirmed that Titanfall 2 will be at the event, but it is unclear whether it will be playable. A Titanfall 2 teaser was released on Aprill 11, and confirms the sequel will be released for Xbox One, PC, and PS4.

EA Access, meanwhile, is currently available on Xbox One. A PC version called Origin Access arrived earlier this year. You can sign up for $5/month or $30/year, and in return get access to a library of free games, as well as a discount on all EA digital content. EA also gives members the opportunity to play new games five days before they are released publicly.
