Battlefield V trial available early to EA Access members

Battlefield V is an upcoming first-person shooter set in World War II. The game features single-player campaign scenarios similar to Battlefield 1. For example, one of the main missions focuses on a female solider, her history, and her family. The developer said that Battlefield V tells the "untold stories of World War II", but it's unclear if they're works of fiction or interactive reenactments.

The game was supposed to get an EA Access trial tomorrow, but it looks like it's available a day early. If you go to the Battlefield V page on the Xbox Store, you can download the ten-hour trial right now.

Unlike Battlefield 1, it seems like the focus here is to merge all forms of gameplay — foot, vehicular, and aerial — into every map. There seems to be a lot of environmental variety too. Hopefully snipers won't run amok in this iteration of the game. There need to be better balancing this time around, especially when it comes to certain loadouts having unfair advantages.

Battlefield V was supposed to launch earlier this year, but was delayed to November 20, 2018 a few weeks ago. Hopefully the game will be a polished experience. The beta test was quite rough around the edges, especially when it came to performance on Xbox One. Even the Xbox One X performance wasn't that great.

  • Once upon a time demo or trial versions used to be free. Well done EA...
  • At work but installing it now via Xbox app
  • Already tried it a bit last night. The intro kinda chokes you up a bit at the end. The gameplay was great from the 3 Conquest matches I tried. Tonight I will try one of the Grand Operations
  • Finally got a chance to play the trial. But only single player is available to me. I receive the message that "This account is restricted from online access" and to contact support (no number given) if I feel I've received this in error" even though my online access and XBL and rep are all fine and I can play BF1, BF4, and other games online. Is the mp not a part of this latest 10 he trial?
