Want to play Battlefield 1 early? Prepare for October 13

Battlefield 1 fans will want to know that they can get in early, playing the game 5 days early

We're now less than 30 days away from the release of Battlefield 1, after its major debut during E3 this year, and you can get into the game early - if you want.




EA Access members get 10 hours of game time with Battlefield 1 starting on October 13, and have to use those 10 hours wisely until the official release 5 days later on October 18 for Early Enlister Deluxe Edition, and then October 21 for everyone else. There will be both single-player and multiplayer, five maps to play on with Conquest mode, with progress carrying onto the full game. If you play the 10 hours through, you'll receive a Battlepack when Battlefield 1 launches on October 18.


  • October 13 - EA Access w/Early Enlister Deluxe Edition (partial game/10 hours play)
  • October 18 - Early Enlister Deluxe Edition (full game)
  • October 21 - Battlefield 1 official release


The two missions included in the October 13 early release of Battlefield 1 are 'Storm of Steel' and 'Through Mud and Blood', but I think it'll be the multiplayer side of BF1 that has everyone talking. I played it as much as I could and fell in love with it, it was the only game that pulled me away from my Overwatch obsession.
