Battlefield 1 Goes Free For EA And Origin Access


While Origin Access on PC and EA Access on Xbox have slightly different libraries, Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 will be heading to both.

For those interested, the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass can be obtained for $49.99. It gives you access to tons of games in the Vault, including Star Wars: Battlefront and all its respective DLC; Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and a handful of other favorites across both platforms. The only hitch is that players who don't own the DLC will not earn any experience. It is called In the Name of the Tsar and introduces the Russian army, alongside new maps and weaponry. Battlefield 1 is still priced at $59.99 on the Microsoft Store today, so it's now much cheaper to try the game by subscribing to EA Access.

Meanwhile, the multiplayer in Battlefield 1 is just as large as previous entries in the franchise with matches featuring up to 64 players.

EA Access costs £3.99 a month, or a full year costs £19.99. Currently, EA Access claims to bolster over 45 games whereas Origin Access has over 75 and counting.

Xbox 360 backward compatible titles, such as the original Mass Effect trilogy, are included as part of EA Access. On top of that, there's even access to old-school gems like Wing Commander and Ultima as well. The Titanfall 2 campaign was particularly well received, though unfortunately the game didn't sell too well during the crowded holiday season.

Neither EA Access nor Origin Access is available on the PlayStation 4.

EA Access and Origin Access are about to get a big push this week, as Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 have officially joined the vault.
