FIFA 15 Is Now Available on EA Access For Xbox One

There is a catch, though.

One of the things that EA promised would be available to people who subscribed to its EA Access subscription service was early access to unreleased EA games, and now, they seem to be making good on that promise as FIFA 15, which isn’t actually out until some time next week, is available to play for EA Access subscribers right this moment.

The catch? You can only play it for a total of six hours until the launch of the game, at which point the limit is removed. Your saved data and progress naturally carry over to the full game (should you choose to buy it), and you can either play those six hours all in one go, or spread them out over the next one week.

“You can play all of the trial at once or spread your gaming over several days. Either way, you’ll get regular updates letting you know how much time you have left,” EA said on its website. “Be sure to quit the game when you’re not playing in order to maximize your game time,” they add, since leaving it running in the background still counts towards game time.

Although the restrictions are a little disappointing, I guess EA Access is a work in progress. If people don’t like them, they should let EA know, who will hopefully take the feedback into account for their next release.

    Well I could see some people being disappointed, like my friend, about this “only six hours trial time” thing. Like Pramath said, speak out to EA if u no like. Lol. However, I had to remind my friend that EA Access isn’t the previous service EA was giving before. I forget what it’s called. Basically the trials before release lasted about 5 full days in play time. But this was only supported for EA Sports games (I believe) and it cost $25 (I think per year) just to play games early… Vault. Not sure about discounts.

    Point is, EA Access’ selling point is about the Vault, not trials. Discounts and trials are peripheral features tacked onto the Vault. And obviously their previous trials program didn’t catch on, as my friend dropped out of subscription too. My feelings are, if u have EA Access and feel slighted by them due to the 6 hour limitation, hit up their Twitter and complain. But they never did advertise Access as a trials program, but a cheap games (Vault) subscription service. I didn’t buy Need for Speed Rivals, but I’m bout to download it today from the Vault!
