We’ve reported EA and Origin Access a few times ; But with Battlefield 1 , the news had little to do then. However, that’s changing now: DICE and EA have announced when to start their subscription service early in Battlefield 1 and what content is available for the 10-hour trial period. Incidentally, the short form is something like this: Five maps, four modes, all equipment and two single-player missions wait for a total of ten hours on the trial warriors.
The battlefields are St. Quentin Scar (aka the Alpha Map), Amiens, Sinai Desert (aka the Beta Map), Fao Fortress and Suez. The maps are all playable in four modes: Conquest, Rush, the multi-map operations and the Domination mode are included – from large vehicle battles to small infantry maps so everything should be there. You can try two singleplayer missions with Storm of Steel and Through Mud and Blood. All the progress made is taken over for the launch in the normal game. The launch for Battlefield 1 is on both EA Access and Origin Access on October 13th.
For those who do not know what hides behind EA Access and Origin Access: This is the “Xbox One” – or PC-exclusive subscription service from EA. For four euros a month you can play a steadily growing stack of mostly very up to date games in the so-called Vault, there is a 10 percent discount on all titles in the store (which applies to origin also for titles of other manufacturers …) and there are also the ten-hour trials, which usually start one to two weeks before release. In terms of content, both offers are considered very good and inexpensive – just who does not have all the games and would like to try one or two titles, drives here much cheaper than at key stores.
