You Can Play Battlefield 5 Early With EA Access
EA Access lives up to its name.
EA has detailed its plans for the EA Access service through October and November, including some special early access to Battlefield 5. The game is set to launch on November 20, but members of EA's subscription service can try it for up to 10 hours starting on November 9. As usual, once your time is up you can carry over progress to the full game if you choose to purchase it.
Meanwhile, the Vault is adding a few notable games over the next few weeks. Fight Night Champion and Burnout Paradise Remastered are coming on October 10. Army of Two will join them the week after, on October 17. The Vault is a large and growing library of games that you can play all-you-can-eat style as long as you maintain an EA Access subscription.
Similar to Battlefield 5, recent games like FIFA 19, NHL 19, NBA Live 19, and Madden NFL 19 have 10-hour trial periods on the service. Members also receive a 10% discount on digital purchases. It costs $5 per month or $30 per year.
Battlefield 5 was originally due in just a few weeks, on October 19. DICE and EA decided to delay it by a month, explaining that this would give the studio time to make final adjustments and give the attention needed to the new live service. It also gives the team time to respond to feedback from the open beta, and we recently heard about several quality-of-life changes that are coming as a result. This Battlefield will also offer an ambitious new Battle Royale mode called Firestorm, with a max player count of 64.
