Random Xbox Live members are getting free EA Access codes


Just in time for Battlefront

Some Xbox Live users are finding that they suddenly have access to way more EA games than they own. That's the nature of the appropriately-named EA Access -- it's a service that allows unlimited playing of certain titles that are in the "Vault" and limited sessions with new games. EA is granting some free trials of the program in hopes that it'll convert into a few sales.

As reported on the Xbox One subreddit, some Xbox Live members are finding messages in their inbox with free month-long trials to EA Access. That's just in time for next week's release of Star Wars Battlefront. The trial comes with ten hours of playtime on Battlefront prior to the game's launch date. Those who like what they see will surely be prompted to purchase the full title.

Interestingly, there doesn't seem to be any sort of criteria as to who's getting this offer; it's just showing up in random inboxes. Consider yourself among the lucky if it shows up for you because free games (even if just for a month) is never a bad thing.
