Battlefield Hardline

Xbox One owners who subscribe to the EA Access service will have something to look forward to on October 14. That's when Electronic Arts will add the recent crime-themed first-person shooter Battlefield Hardline to the vault of games that EA Access members can play for free.

The fact that the game would be included with EA Access in October was revealed a few weeks ago, but EA has now nailed down a specific date for its appearance. The shooter is a departure from the normal military-based Battlefield series, as it deals with battles between cops and criminals in a variety of locations and scenarios. Keep in mind that EA Access members will just get the base Battlefield Hardline game for free, and not any of its post-release content.

EA Access costs $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. It already has 13 games in the vault, including Dragon Age: Inquisition, Titanfall and more. Subscribers can also get 10% off the price of full EA digital games for the Xbox One, and also play trial versions of upcoming games like the Need for Speed reboot and Star Wars Battlefront several days before those games are released.
