Battlefield Hardline’s EA Access debut finally has a date.
Straight from the EA Twitter feed, it has been revealed that Xbox One owners with a subscription to EA Access can download Hardline on October 14th.
This news shouldn’t be a surprise to many as just last week it was announced that the game would come to subscribers some time this month. Like Battlefield 4, an Access subscription will give players a chance to play the full campaign along with all the free vanilla maps. For the full Hardline experience, players might still want to consider picking up the Premium for Hardline which grants access to all the map packs.
Current subscribers looking to play Hardline the second it goes free on the 14th can re-download the trial version of the game. From there, the game will only have to install a small patch instead of the full 43gig download.
Hardline joins an already jam-packed vault of EA games. At this point in time there are well over a dozen games available through Access, and subscribers also get 10% each EA purchase.
In addition to Hardline going free to subscribers next week, it has also been noted that EA Access subscribers can play DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront starting Nov. 12 – five full days before the game is playable on any other platform.
Will you be downloading Battlefield Hardline next week, or will you pass for now? Feel free to let me know in the comments below or on Twitter!
