The questions that can arise from that statement:

Does this mean that we can try the game for five full days leading up to release, similar to what the Season Ticket (ps3, 360) allowed for 3 days?

Or does it mean we can try a game once (or for a limited time) during the 5 days leading up to release?

I wish we had definitive answers to this, and it's confusing all of us as to why there are no answers. Maybe it's just black & white, you can play the game for a full 5 days, and EA need not explain it further. Or maybe it's something more disingenuous and they want as many people to subscribe before clarifying what exactly is going on. Obviously, we all hope it's the former.
I think everyone is over thinking it. You get the full game 5 days before. This is their way of eliminating people buying a game for 80-100 bucks to get it early. It's just like the EA Sports Season Ticket.

To handle that differently in this case would almost guarantee failure going forward based on the precedent set by Season Ticket coupled with the fact that it's more expensive.
While I also expect the sports game to be unlimited during the early access period, I think pointing at the higher price of EA Access and claiming that automatically means the early access period must be unlimited as well is overlooking the fact that EA Access offers other benefits that Season Ticket does not, namely the free games in the Vault and a 10% discount on the digital release of the full game.

Season Ticket was/is 3 days prior to release date. EA Access is 5 days prior.

Good point. I should have taken that into account.
