Star Wars Battlefront & EA Access Combo is Brilliant

EA Access has been around for quite some time and until now we’ve never fully appreciated the benefits of paying £3.99 per month or £19.99 a year for a selection of older titles and the chance to demo some new ones and gain a 10% discount on digital purchases. That is, until today with the arrival of one of EA’s hotly anticipated games of 2015 Star Wars Battlefront – which if you didn’t know is available now to play for subscribers of EA Access – yes yours for 10 hours trial of the full game for £3.99. Previously we might have scoffed at the idea due to the low numbers of must-have titles being available, but as you would naturally expect, over time the service has become a lot more viable. There’s some big games on offer in the Vault which offers full games to play as long as you are subscribed such as TitanFall Dragon Age:Inquisition, Battlefield Hardline to name but a few. Then there’s the trials which also includes the latest Need For Speed game and the aforementioned Star Wars Battlefront. What’s excellent about the offer is you can get a lot done in 10 hours and if you’re on a budget £3.99 is not a bad investment considering once the 10 hours is up you’ve still got a month of other games to catch up on if desired. The cynical could look at it as paying for a demo if all you want to do is try Battlefront, except the trial is so much more than a demo and offers the full game complete with achievements and progress saves. The reality is, this is decent service in light of not only the 10 hour trial, discount and vault access games but the fact you’re able to play Star Wars Battlefront a week early. Take a look at the video to see what we’ve discussed here in action.
