The upcoming trial for adorable platformer Unravel on EA/Origin Access will let users play its first two levels, Electronic Arts has confirmed. Although only two levels are playable in the pre-release trial, you can play those levels as much as you want for a period of 10 hours, EA said in a message posted on Origin.

EA also confirmed on Twitter that, as with other EA Access trials, all of your progress in the pre-release version of Unravel will carry forward to the full game should you decide to buy it.

Plus, EA Access members can save 10 percent on Unravel (and all other EA digital content) meaning they can get the platformer for $18 instead of $20. The EA Access trial for Unravel begins February 4, a full five days before the game is released publicly on February 9 for Xbox One, PC, and PS4.

In other news about EA Access, EA this week announced that the service is now available on PC through Origin Access. It carries the same $5/month fee as the existing Xbox One package. EA Access, which also grants access to an expanding catalog of free games, is still missing on PlayStation 4.

"Gaming is a powerful platform, able to inspire players and touch their hearts," Unravel creative director Martin Sahlin said in a statement. With Unravel, we're hoping to do just that. Yarny's quest is to mend broken bonds and the yarn represents the love and connection between people. Along the way, we'll test your cleverness with environment-based puzzles inspired by our home in Northern Sweden."

In Unravel, you'll use Yarny's thread to do things like swing across a gap or rappel down a tree. Those are basic examples, but the game will also challenge you to use the thread in "clever and creative ways," according to EA.
