Get ready for battle! Electronic Arts has released details regarding the early trial of Battlefield 1 for EA and Origin Access members.
Subscribers can begin playing Battlefield 1 as early as October 13. That’s an entire week before the game’s official launch.
The Access program dictates that members can only play a specific amount of hours during the early period. The publisher confirms that the Battlefield 1 trial gives players just 10 hours of gameplay time. This includes both the single-player campaign and multiplayer portion.
Just for clarification purposes, if you run through all 10 hours of allotted gameplay time in the very first day, you’ll lose access to the game until the official release later in the week.
In the online module, players can experience five maps (St. Quentin Scar, Amiens, Sinai Desert, Fao Fortress and Suez) and four game modes (Conquest, Rush, Operations, and Domination).
As for the single-player campaign, EA teases a “taste” of the storyline with two missions: “Storm of Steel” and “Through Mud and Blood”.
Note that any progress made during the early access carries over to the main game once the trial ends. That is of course if you choose to purchase the full game.
On a lasting note, EA is including a small incentive for players to try out the early access of Battlefield 1. Burning through 10 hours of gameplay time before October 20 unlocks a Battlepack in the full game.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled for a worldwide release on October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
