10 hour trial for Madden NFL 20 now available through EA Access and Origin Access

Posted July 24th, 2019 at 8:00 am

Madden NFL 20 can now be downloaded as a timed trial with EA Access on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and for a trial or unlimited play (Premiere service) with Origin Access on PC.

Subscribers to the base service will get 10 hours of playtime after which it will expire requiring the purchased game to continue or a second EA Access account for 10 more hours. 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 from the respective home screens when not in use.

The 10 hours are there to play immediately but can continue to be used even beyond release. Any progress made in the various modes and online results will carry over if a full copy is purchased. The complete game is available during the trial period.

EA Access launched July 2014 on Xbox One and last year was joined by Origin Access on PC. After being prevented by Sony from releasing the service on PS4 it was finally cleared to launch on the system today. 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.

Madden NFL 20 officially releases on Tue. July 30 for the Superstar Edition which goes for $80 and includes bonus content. The standard edition is $60 and comes out Fri. Aug 2 but Amazon is selling that one for just $50.94.
