Lucky Inquisitors subscribed to EA Access can plan to start dragon-slaying earlier than expected this month.
EA Access will be making Dragon Age: Inquisition available to all of its members on November 13th, five full days before the official release date.
Like previous early release trials, the service will grant players a six hour limit, giving them time to create their character, form an inquisition, and begin exploring the world of Thedas.
Pre-ordering the game is not necessary in order to take advantage of this opportunity. All progress made in the trial will be saved for continuation in the full version of the game. EA Access members who choose to purchase the full game through the Xbox One Game Store will also claim a 10% discount.
The full game version of Dragon Age: Inquisition launches November 18th in North America, November 20th in Australia, and November 21st in Europe. It will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
EA Access membership costs $4.99 a month, and is available to Xbox One gamers. It offers discounts on EA digital purchases, access to The Vault (a collection of EA’s Xbox One titles), a trials of new games.
I’ve got my copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition pre-ordered so that I can start binging on it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to take advantage of the EA Access opportunity, but I don’t fret too much. For a game that is reportedly incredibly expansive (clocking in at 200 hours), the trial’s six hour limit would only whet my tongue. Getting just a taste of the game five days prior to launch would be an irresistible temptation and the worst kind of joystick torture. The 10% discount seems nice, though.
