Star Wars Battlefront II is now available in the EA Access vault, publisher EA has announced. That means EA / Origin Access members can play the game at no extra cost for as long as they’re subscribed.
The full game is included in the Vault version, though paid DLC is sold separately. Otherwise, you can play both the single-player campaign and the extensive multiplayer portion to your heart’s content.
Battlefront II’s launch was marred with microtransaction controversy after some fans labeled the game as “pay-to-win.” Developer DICE has since revamped the game’s progression system and continued to add more content.
We awarded the shooter a 6/10 at launch. Critic Alessandro Fillari wrote: “While its main narrative feels unresolved, and the general loop of the multiplayer carries a number of issues, Battlefront II still manages to evoke that same sense of joy and excitement found in the core of what the series is all about.” Read more in our full Star Wars Battlefront II review.
EA Access members can play a number of games for no extra cost, in addition to receiving discounts and free trials for other EA titles. The service costs $5 / £4 per month or $30 / £20 per year, and is exclusive to Xbox One and PC.
