If you own a Xbox One, you may be getting a special message from Microsoft soon. The company is very quietly sending some owners of the console free codes for one month of EA Access, which are normally worth $4.99.
EA Access is Electronic Arts' service that offers subscribers access to over 10 older EA games for free. It also offers users a chance to play free trials of upcoming EA games. As it happens, these codes are being sent to Xbox One owners just a few days before EA Access will start a 10-hour free trial for the upcoming multiplayer shooter Star Wars: Battlefront on Thursday, November 12.
The trial will offer players a way to play the full game for a limited time, and their progress and saves can be carried over when Star Wars: Battlefront officially launches on November 17.
- Pre-order Star Wars Battlefront for the Xbox One on Amazon for $59.99
- Buy 12 months of EA Access for the Xbox One on the Microsoft Store for $29.99
