Is anyone surprised by EA?
Last month, EA surprised games with the announcement of its new PlayStation Plus-esque digital game service, EA Access, which will not only provide gamers with the ability to access and download older EA titles from “the Vault,” but also get the chance to try out several of EA’s new releases prior to their official release. However, that time with those select new titles may be very limited, according to the latest developments.
EA Access’s Twitter account confirmed that when Madden NFL 15 is made available through the EA Access subscription service, players will be limited to “six gameplay hours” with the title, though the publisher did not clarify whether this means time spent actually playing the game, or gameplay time in total, whether the game is paused, players spend time with in-game menus, etc.
Madden NFL 15 releases for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 on August 26th, 2014 – stay tuned for more information on when to expect the EA Access demo for the title on Xbox One, which should (presumably) arrive by the end of this week.
