Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Lets You Play A Week Early With EA/Origin Access
You can play starting on November 9 if you're an EA/Origin Access subscriber.
One of the benefits of an EA Access subscription is that it lets you play at least a portion of upcoming games before they are released publicly. In many cases, the early access period begins five days before launch. But for Star Wars: Battlefront II, EA Access members can start even sooner.
A post on the Battlefront II pre-order website shows that EA/Origin Access subscribers can begin playing on November 9, which is eight days before the game's November 17 release date. Progress carries over to the full game for players who decide to pick it up.
The early access period for 2015's Battlefront started on November 12, five days before the game's official release date. The early play period had a time limit (10 hours) and it can be expected that Battlefront II's early access period will have a playtime cap of its own.
EA/Origin Access subscriptions are available for $5/month or $30/year. The latter is the more economical choice if you are sure you want to subscribe for an entire year.
In addition to early play, EA/Origin Access memberships provide access to a growing library of titles at no extra cost, while subscribers also save 10 percent on all EA digital content.
