Star Wars: Battlefront Now Free on Xbox One With EA Access

Play the game, then see the movie.

21 Comments

EA today added Star Wars: Battlefront to the EA Access free game vault on Xbox One. That means all subscribers can play the complete game as much as they want, though this is the standard edition, so it doesn't come with any add-ons.

Battlefront's arrival in the EA Access free game vault comes just days before Star Wars: Rogue One comes to theaters on December 16. The game's Rogue One tie-in DLC, Rogue One: Scarif, launched on December 6 for some players, adding content and characters from the movie.

Battlefront was confirmed to join the "Vault" of free games back in October.

There is no word on if Battlefront will be added to Origin Access, which is a version of EA Access for PC. No version of EA Access is available on PlayStation 4.

No Caption Provided

EA Access costs $5/month or $30/year. Benefits include access to expanding library of free games, as well as the ability to play EA-published games before their release. Members also save 10 percent on all EA digital content.

Battlefront is the 39th game in the EA Access free game vault. You can see all the EA Access and Origin Access games here.

A Battlefront sequel is coming out in 2017. It hasn't been formally announced, but EA has said it'll be "much bigger" than the first game and feature content from "the new movies."

I think that I must be very weird... I have no interest in this movie. None at all. I ought to since I generally like Star Wars movies... They were never my favorite (I am a Trek person who actually leans more towards Dr Who in terms of Sci Fi) but I certainly don't hate it. I even found some random good things to say about the prequels (And that took work). And I have to say - for what amounted to a soft reboot, the recent Star Wars movie actually wasn't bad - it was solid, I enjoyed my time in the theater and didn't curse the name of "Abrams" (Like I did with his trek movies). So it strikes me as really weird that I see stuff about this Rogue One movie and say "meh" to it... I know I am in the minority on this so take that for what it is worth. But for me, I pegged it as a amazon rental sometimes next year...

@Chaz456: I can also see the other argument though, it probably would be better to say a game joins EA access or something like that.

@sellingthings: Considering they released the Pro, they have to care a little. 1800p upscaled to 4k sure beats 720p upscaled to 4k.

@howthegodzkill: 1800p?

What games are 1800p on ps4 pro?

I've heard 1440p on most games. I know it's not too much of a difference but people constantly point out the 900p and 1080p difference between the ps4 and xb1.

@sellingthings: well we might get that with Scorpio if they don't try to force 4k all the time.
