Subscribers to EA Access will be limited to 10 hours of play with Star Wars Battlefront during the game's sneak preview period beginning Nov. 12, but all parts of the full release will be available to try out.
That's cool! I bet the 9+ million people who played it early in October during the beta gave plenty of feedback for them to tweak it a bit before launch. I'm sure we'll get more details and video on maps and content now since they'll be streaming it next week.
I think this sucks. They are giving you a 10 hour WINDOW. That means that when you start playing, you only have 10 hours from then........and then it's over. Couldn't they even have given you a 24 hour window? I'm not impressed with this at all.
READ the article, no not 10 hour WINDOW. 10 hours of play, friend.
@traumadisaster, You're right. Apparently I misunderstood what was being said......Mea culpa. Thank you for pointing that out to me.
Sweet , cant wait
Interesting. I have EA access. Got it for my ps4 though...oh well. I guess I can get used to it and smoke the new people online lol
He might want the better performance, or play it with friends on PS4. If he owns an XONE and has EA access, I see no reason to not play it early lol. You can still have both consoles and pick a different version for different reasons. I own a gaming PC and I'm still getting this on my PS4. As...you don't know my PC set up, my friends on PS4 etc. More might factor into why he is getting it on one platform then you might think.
Ea access isn't for ps4 though
I think he meant to say he has both a PS4 and an X1, has EA Access on X1 but ordered Battlefront for the PS4 instead... Doesn't mean he can't play a bit on the X1 early tho and then switch to the PS4 version when it actually releases...
On my x1 I have ea Access
Missed the beta so got access to try this out! Will be hard putting Fallout 4 down though.
Great opportunity given it is the final build. You will have a better first experience than any beta player. I liked the gameplay a lot. Just not feeling the absent content I believe should be in there. So I will wait for it to hit the vault.
But this is not a good service, right guys?
Indeed it's not! Thing is, this 10 hours of playing new games early is the only thing that would be of interest to me and it really is just a glorified demo then that you have to pay monthly for. All the other benefits are totally lost on me (not a sports game fan, the games in the library are either sports or games I already own or am interested in to owning), the discount which is only on digital games still makes the digital games more expensive than shopping around for a good deal on a physical copy, etc., etc. Plus I really do not like the idea of all the other big publishers wanting to do the same damn thing and pay for them too, afterall it's such a good deal apparently for many of people why wouldn't they find it a good deal when the other publishers do the same? In the end it's not gonna be just $5 a month, but $5 for each...
Can't wait to play the campaign...oh yeah. Forgot.
You can enjoy the MP like a lot of other people are doing.
Yep that is true. Thanks captain.
Well, there are mission which you can play.
Not realising that people who spend that full 10 hours on the game playing it to death (free is free) will have played most of what the game has to offer. After they are finished "Well I've played it...now what to buy now"
Exactly!! Seriously tho I'm still on the fence about this game so this is perfect for me.
You realize this is a multiplayer game right? You don't finish good multiplayer games in 10hrs.
I just wish we could get a straight answer about split-screen battles, instead of survival.
Man its good to have an xboxone and ea access
If you like 720/900 res. selling my xbox massive disappointment. buying for the pc.
I call bs . If you had one i doubt you would sell it ,as the amount of free games Msoft are handing out you would have to have shit for brains if you sold it . It only cost about 3 or 4 Aaa games to buy the thing. So yea go and sell the console you dont have for $100 buy a game for $60 or whatever it is where you live ..... dont make much sence to me ..... and its only afew days away from the update ..... so sell that console i doubt you own. And i dont give atoss about 720 p 900p 1080 9p . The game looks great. I have said this before , when someone else can give me a ping of 15ms i will buy there toy .... oh!!! Thay cant not enough servers, money ect ..... multiplayer games are useless with a huge amount of lag.
@Mrveryodd Most of those free games have been out for a while. You may not care about 720p (you know standard over 10 years ago) but many people do. Some people buy full HD tvs specifically for gaming and expect to put their investment to good use in regard to its image quality. Would you buy a 720p tv over a 1080p tv because you preferred the OS/Remote on the 720p model?
@mrveryold I do own a X box one thank you (not for much longer) I only recently bought a new gpu for my old Pc and was blown away with the difference(bought a 970 for my 4 year old Pc playing at 2k at 60 fps on ultra no aa). I upgraded my Pc because I was sick of aaa games always having the worst version on X box fact.Free games? They are all years old or indy games that don't interest me.I bought an Xbox one at launch and bought into the next gen nonsense.Silly me should have waited as the hardware is so weak in the Xbox. Servers on Pc are free and fine as is the voice chat.If your happy with what you have fine enjoy but I am not 720/900 sucks when you have a 1080 TV.
