Battlefront Coming to the Xbox One First


May 4, 2013
Star Wars Battlefront, DICE's highly anticipated upcoming multiplayer shooter game based upon the beloved Star Wars film franchise, will be playable first to those who own an Xbox One. Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, confirmed that Xbox One owners will be receiving this title first as long as they have an active subscription to EA Access.

For those interested, EA Access costs $4.99 a month, or $29.99 for a full year. EA Access additionally provides players with a slate of upcoming titles several days prior to their release, and users will be able to play EA-published games for however long they wish without any hassle, which is actually quite the steal. I noticed several PlayStation 4 owners were quite disheartened by the news, however EA originally offered Sony the opportunity to have EA Access on the PlayStation 4. Sony politely declined their offer saying that it doesn't believe EA Access offers "good value."
