You can now play the Battlefield 1 trial on Xbox One and PC
Battlefield 1's early access trial is now playable on both Xbox One and PC, provided you have an active EA Access or Origin Access membership. While the trial was originally scheduled to go live tomorrow, subscribers of the services can now access the game on both platforms.
The Xbox One trial can be installed through the demos section of the Xbox Store, entailing a 45GB download. The PC version of Battlefield 1 can also be installed via the Origin desktop client, requiring 40.4GB of free space. Those who have pre-loaded the title can start playing straight away, provided you have an active EA Access subscription.
Playtime during the trial period is limited 10 hours, with only two of the game's six campaign missions available before launch. On the multiplayer side, five maps and four game modes are currently playable, with more arriving once the game's 'Early Enlister Deluxe Edition' releases on October 18.
If you enjoy the trial, remember that all progress made during the early access period will transfer through to the full version of Battlefield 1!

It opened on Australia time UTC+11 it is already Oct the 13th over there. I am not sure why the blogosphere is confused about that.
This "trial" you speak of, happened over a month ago. And was open to EVERYONE, regardless if you pre ordered the game, or not, or what level of pre order you purchased into.
Is this the future of gaming? This paying extra to receive extra perks, and/or premium treatment? Probably so. Just about every other industry went that way ages ago. Gaming has been the last hold out.
