Battlefield 1 free trial starts Oct. 13 for EA Access and Origin Access members

The free 10-hour trial for Electronic Arts' upcoming World War I shooter Battlefield 1 will be available on October 13 for EA Access members on the Xbox One and Origin Access subscribers for PC players.

In a post on the official Battlefield site, EA states:

Five maps and four modes will be available, including St. Quentin Scar, Amiens, Sinai Desert, Fao Fortress and Suez in the Conquest, Rush, Operations, and Domination modes. There's also a taste of the singleplayer campaign, with the missions Storm of Steel and Through Mud and Blood. Your progress carries over, too, if you decide to buy the full game after your Play First Trial ends. EA Access and Origin Access members will also unlock content by playing between October 13 and October 20. You'll be able to get an exclusive Trench Raider Dog Tag just for launching the game with the Play First Trial during that time – and if you play all ten hours before October 20, you'll have a Battlepack waiting for you in the full game.

If you have not used up all of your free play time by October 18, all of the game's maps and modes will unlock for EA Access and Origin Access trial members. The full version of Battlefield 1 will be available for people who pre-order the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition on the same day, and for everyone else who purchased the game on October 21.

  • 10 hours is about all I need on this type of game... I think I only did 9 hours of Battlefront before uninstalling. not saying the game is bad or anything, I actually really liked it, just becomes very repetitive, obviouly because that's all there is, 6 minute matches.. then again free time is great for campain, like with Halo 5, I got to play the whole game in that free game weekend :)
  • I was pretty underwhelmed by Battlefront, but really enjoyed BF1 during its beta. (Also a fan of most of the previous BF games). On that note, it's definitely 10x more fun playing with friends.  
  • You hit the nail on the head. BF1 beta was so repetitive and felt so much like Battlefront but in first person and no lasers. I'll try the trial and decide then. But up til then, I'm not buying "BattleFRONT1."
  • 10 hours trial is really good lenght for a game like bf1.I will definitely give it a a try
  • Enough to try the fill version and confirm it doesn't deserve my money like Battlefront
  • Damn, this its going to cut into my Gears 4 playing time.
