That makes the most sense. I'm sure sports games will get more time but they'd be insane to let you have 5 days of unlimited play time for something like mirrors edge which probably takes little time to beat.

Here's an FAQ, will update OP.

http://www.ea.com/eaaccess/faq.html

What will the pre-release trials include? Will my progress carry over?

Each game is different, so each game’s trial will be, too. In some titles you’ll be able to play one of the game's modes for a limited time, while other times you can jump right into the full game. And since you’ll always be playing the real game, any progress you make will carry over so you can pick up where you left off on launch day.

Are you serious with this comment? Sony users getting screwed? Lets see, you have the Last of us remastered that just came out, you have tons of free to play games, your subscription based service nets you what? 4 or 5 decent games a month, you have a more powerful system, a company that makes you feel like your money is being well spent. So yeah you Sony guys sure are getting screwed pretty good compared to us Microsoft guys. Get real and quit whining about the XB1 getting something compelling for sports gamers. Oh yeah and you get the Show all to yourself too, but man does Sony screw you guys.

"The Vault is an evolving selection of EA's Xbox One games that EA Access members can download and play while an active member. During the beta, gamers will have unlimited access to four great EA games: Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4, with more titles being added soon."

Wonder how the access will change once it is up and running. Access to those games for 2.50 a month would be ridiculous. Just curious about what will be in the vault and if there will be additional charges. Already sold on the rest of it

Sounds like sports games will have pretty open access then. Not saying they will but it's much different than games with story/story arc. So I'm going to hope for pretty open access to sports game.

I'm all in for this. I had the old EA Early Access for the PS3 and 360.

Play them early on X1 and purchase on PS4.

Andrew Reiner ‏@Andrew_Reiner

"...trials of new EA games up to five days before the release date..." Does this mean full games or demos?

Geoff Keighley ‏@geoffkeighley

@Andrew_Reiner I believe you get the full game 5 days early but then lose access on launch day.

That's correct, these trials are the final version of the game, and progress carries over if you choose to buy.
