You can now play the Mass Effect: Andromeda trial on Xbox One and PC

For those subscribed to Electronic Arts' EA Access and Origin Access services, a ten-hour free trial of the upcoming 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' is now available to download. Providing limited access to the full game, players will be able to get a feel for the title ahead of its official release on Tuesday, March 21.

For those wanting to gain access to the trial on Xbox One, simply launch the EA Access application with an active subscription and navigate over to the 'Game Trials' tab. On PC, you'll need to navigate to the 'Origin Access' tab of the Origin desktop client. The Xbox One and PC versions of the game come in at 43.9 GB and 43.7 GB respectively.

During your trial, you'll be allocated 10 hours with the full game, aside from some slight limitations to the single player story mode. While players are granted unlimited access to multiplayer, progression through single player content is blocked after a certain point. While you'll be getting access to a small taste of the narrative, you'll have to purchase the full game to continue your play-through. As with all Electronic Arts titles, you'll gain a 10 percent discount off the final game as an EA Access or Origin Access subscriber.
