As with all other EA Access free games, this is the full version of Hardline with no time limits or other caps.

Hardline becomes the fourteenth game available in the EA Access "Vault," following the most recent addition, Dragon Age: Inquisition, which arrived in August.

EA Access is currently available only on Xbox One. You can sign up for $5/month or $30/year. Other subscription benefits include a 10-percent discount on all EA digital content and access to upcoming EA titles five days before they are released publicly.

Originally scheduled to launch at the end of 2014, Hardline--developed by Dead Space studio Visceral Games--was eventually released in March 2015 for consoles and PC. GameSpot's review scored it a 7/10.

In addition to ongoing support for Hardline, Visceral is working on a new Star Wars game, development of which is being led by former Uncharted director Amy Hennig.
