Star Wars: Battlefront Playable First on the Xbox One For EA Access Subscribers

Good news surfaced today for Xbox One owners, when Xbox Head Phil Spencer confirmed on Twitter that EA’s upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront will be available early for Xbox Live users subscribed to EA’s EA Access service.

For those not in the know, EA Access is a paid subscription plan exclusive to the Xbox One, allowing early access to EA’s titles for $4.99 a month or $29.99 per year. While the service is only available on Xbox, it’s not a matter of console favoritism on EA’s part. EA offered Sony the same deal for the Playstation 4, but Sony declined, feeling that it did not offer a good enough value for Playstation owners.

It is unknown when EA plans to make the game available to EA Access subscribers, but Star Wars: Battlefront launches for the general public November 17th, 2015. Xbox One users can expect their special early launch shortly before that.
