Star Wars Battlefront Playable First On Xbox One Via EA Access


Star Wars Battlefront Playable First On Xbox One Via EA Access

Speaking objectively, one of the more intriguing subplots of this generation is the way in which developers and publishers are striving to secure exclusive content and the like to get a foot up on their rivals. As much of a hinderance as it can be to the collective player, it’s a trend that looks set to continue unabated, particularly as the likes of EA Access evolve and develop.

In fact, Xbox Marketing manager Aaron Greenberg raised a lot of eyebrows just yesterday by revealing that DICE’s upcoming Star Wars Battlefront will be available to play first on Xbox One courtesy of EA’s subscription-based service. Taking to Twitter, here’s what Greenberg had to say when pressed for a release window.

What’s not clear at this time is how long Battlefront will be available on Access prior to its official, multi-platform debut later this year. Mind you, if EA adheres to a similar strategy as the recently-released Battlefield: Hardline, this early access may come packing a gameplay cap; that is, players will only be able to spend a limited amount of time with DICE’s third-person actioner.

As for the general development of Star Wars Battlefront, both EA and DICE have remained relatively quiet since the unveiling of the behind-the-scenes footage during last year’s E3 event. We know for a fact that the first gameplay trailer is in the can, with all signs pointing to a full reveal at Star Wars Celebration, which is due to take place between April 16-19 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

Stay tuned to We Got This Covered over the coming days when we’ll have a full breakdown for you.
