10 hour trial for EA Sports UFC 3 now available through EA Access

Posted January 24th, 2018 at 4:15 pm

EA Sports UFC 3 can now be downloaded as a timed trial with EA Access on Xbox One. Subscribers will get 10 hours of playtime with the trial. The timer is ticking down whenever the game is loaded regardless of whether it is being played, menus are being navigated through, or if there is any activity taking place at all. Because of that make sure to exit out and close the application completely when not in use.

The 10 hours are there to play immediately but can continue to be used beyond its release. Saves are stored on the hard drive so progress in any of the modes and online records and stats carry over if a full copy is purchased. The complete game is available during the trial period.

EA Access launched July 2014 and is available on Xbox One along with now Origin Access on PC. Sony has declined to offer the service through PlayStation 4 saying it doesn’t offer enough value – despite being arguably the best value in all of gaming. EA recently hinted the service may be expanding to the PS4 in 2018 however. EA Access includes the “Vault” which offers unlimited play with nearly every game from the company’s catalog this generation, 10% off all digital purchases, and the ability to play games up to five days before they release with a limited timed trial. EA Access is $30 for a full year or $5 month-to-month.

EA Sports UFC 3 is putting emphasis on rivalries and fight promotions in its career mode. The full fighter roster and ratings are out to view. Considerable improvements have already been made for the game’s release thanks to the early beta. UFC 3 is out January 30 for those who buy the $80 special edition and February 2 for the standard edition.
