EA Access to get Dragon Age Inquisition five days early

dragon-age-inquisition-bannerHey, I’ve got two questions for you.  Do you have an Xbox One?  Are you an EA Access member?  Are you counting down the days to Dragon Age Inquisition?  Actually, that was three questions, but whatever.  If you answered yes to all of them, I’ve got some good news for you.  You’ll be able to play Inquisition five whole days before everyone else.  Read on for the details.

EA made the announcement earlier today in a blog post on the official EA access website.  Through EA Access, players will be able to download Dragon Age Inquisition on November 13th, five days before the game’s retail launch.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that this early release is only a trial.  You’ll be able to play the game for a total of six hours before you’ll have to go back to waiting for the 18th like the rest of us.

Honestly, six hours doesn’t feel like much time at all, especially when you consider that some of us (myself included) will likely spend an hour or two just in the character creation screens.  But I suppose a little Dragon Age is better than no Dragon Age at all.  And the early trial will save your character and progress for when the rest of the game downloads on the 18th.

In case you’ve never heard of EA Access, it’s a subscription service exclusive to Xbox One owners.  For $4.99 a month, EA Access gives players discounts on digital game purchases, and early access to demos and new releases.

Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
