Electronic Arts is giving out a free trial for Battlefield Hardline. The game's trial will contain 10 hours of gameplay access, exclusively for Xbox One gamers. The only catch is that you have to be signed up for EA Access. They let loose a new trailer to help pitch the promo to skeptical enthusiasts.
The 10 hour trial for Battlefield Hardline grants players access to all of Battlefield Hardline, not just a certain section or a few modes. You get to play on every single multiplayer map across every single multiplayer mode, in any way you see fit. The game's single-player campaign is completely available to play through, as well.
This means you can barter your time between single-player and multiplayer in whatever order that best fits your play-style. If you want to bounce back and forth between the two modes for your 10 hour free trial, you can do so.
Those registered with EA Access, the digital subscription service for the Xbox One, will have early access to the game before everyone else.
The YouTube comments for the offer are not complimentary or positive at all. In fact, check out the current ratings for the video with the image snapshot below.
I imagine those numbers will keep on doubling in a very negative way every few hours just until EA decides to step in and hide the rating.
I would quote the comments from the YouTube page but it's mostly just derogatory jabs at the Xbox One. Not that I can blame them.
This news about the 10 hour free trial for EA Access members comes just on the heels of Battlefield Hardline recently going gold. Visceral Games is done and finished with the development and they'll be prepping to have the game shipped and ready for launch by March 17th, 2015 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
EA wasn't done dropping news for EA Access subscribers, though. They also announced that a brand new game is available in their vault, which enables subscribers to pick it up and play whenever they feel like so long as they're putting the coins in EA's coffers.
The new game to join the vault? NBA Live 15. Over on the official EA website, they put up a news post letting people know that the game has joined seven other titles in the vault. They also took time to pepper audiences with a paragraph of praise for the popular sports title, stating...
“Members can experience the most photo-realistic visuals in franchise history with gameplay that delivers a truly fluid, fun, and authentic basketball gaming experience. You’ll never miss a beat during the NBA season with new content updated daily, all season long.”
They also remind gamers that if you subscribe with EA Access – exclusively available on the Xbox One because Sony didn't want it – you get 10% off EA published titles, as well as access to game trials before anyone else, as evidenced with the 10 free hours of gameplay from Battlefield Hardline.
