EA Access subscribers will be limited to just “six gameplay hours” with the pre-release copies of Madden NFL 15.
This information surfaced today on the official EA Access Twitter account. Responding to a query from another Twitter user, EA affirmed that subscribers will lose access to the promised pre-release copy of the game after this time period expires.
“EA Access members will have six gameplay hours with the full Madden NFL 15 game,” said the Tweet.
Many have been quick to note that this will, in fact, give gamers less time with the game than the company’s prior Season Ticket program which gave customers unlimited early access to sport’s games like Madden. This, coupled with the fact that EA will be restricting access of NFL 15’s demo to Access subscribers, could, in turn, lend more fuel to the fire of gamers expressing skepticism about the actual value of the service to gamers.
EA has yet to offer any further comment about the six hour limit but we’ve reached to the company and will share any new information as it becomes available.
