Battlefield Hardline is October's free EA Access game

EA's cops and robbers shooter breaks into the free game vault next month

The gritty cops and robbers shooter Battlefield Hardline will be the next entrant in the free vault of EA Access games, and will be made available sometime in October.




It appears that only the base game, which consists of Hardline's singleplayer campaign and default maps, will be offered and that the premium extras won't be included with the EA Access flavor. At just $5 a month or $30 a year, EA Access is a tremendous value that not only gives access to a growing archive of recent games but gives subscribers 10% off all digital content. The service also lets subscribers jump into select games five days early, including EA's new Star Wars: Battlefront.


EA Access is still exclusive to the Xbox One and shows no signs of coming over to the PlayStation 4 anytime soon. Below is a full list of the free games made available in the vault.


  • Battlefield 4
  • Titanfall
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Battlefield Hardline (coming October)
  • Madden NFL 15
  • Madden NFL 25
  • Need for Speed: Rivals
  • EA Sports UFC
  • FIFA 14
  • FIFA 15
  • NBA Live 15
  • NHL 15
  • Peggle 2
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
