Since its reveal at EA’s E3 2015 press conference, Mass Effect: Andromeda has been a highly anticipated title for fans of the series and newcomers alike. As the release date draws closer, EA has made an exciting announcement. On the official Mass Effect website, they confirmed that Mass Effect: Andromeda would be joining the EA Access program and getting an EA Access Trial.
EA Access is a service that allows Xbox One owners to try games from EA before release. It also gives subscribers access to special discounts and The Vault; a collection of games subscribers get for free. A PC version of the service, entitled Origin Access, is also available. While the vault of games is not the same list, otherwise it functions the same way. There is no version available on PlayStation 4, as Sony has currently declined the service.
Mass Effect: Andromeda’s trial period will become available five days before the release date. Players will get to explore the game for 10 hours, a fairly generous period of time. Any progress you make will also carry over to the full game. The game releases March 21 on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
