Play Battlefield 1 and all EA vault games for free with the Origin Access Trial

You have until March 26 to explore all the PC titles of the Origin Access Vault for free. I am a big fan of Origin Access, and I highly recommend you try the service while its free. A Way Out releases on March 23, so I hope it becomes available in the Play First Trial during the free period as you'll be able to test the game for a good 10 hours to help you decide if you want to purchase it or not. According to the official announcement on Battlefield 1, "you can try out all the perks of Origin Access."

It could be a great way to try out A Way Out which is releasing on 23 March 2018. One month's Origin Access costs R48.50, while A Way Out costs R450. I played the EA First Trial when Mass Effect: Andromeda released, and it saved me from spending almost R1000 on a game that I would've regretted buying. It is very easy to cancel the service, you simply unsubscribe, and it cancels the next debit order run. One year's worth of Origin Access (R299) is cheaper than purchasing A Way Out. You can read more about the game in our breakdown of all the March 2018 new game releases.

But let's get back to the current free trial. There are currently over 60 games you can play for free during the trial, below is a list of my top five games you should play.

Top 5 Origin Access Games to play during the free trial

Up first I have  Battlefield 1, which is still currently the best military online shooter available. You'll be able to play the full base game, as well as the first two War Stories during the trial, and you'll get 10% discount on the game if you decide to continue the journey. Don't forget to join the South African Battlefield 1 community on the local servers. Up next is Titanfall II; our reviewer praised it for its fantastic campaign mode, and you can play through the first two levels right now. At third place is Unravel; one of the most beautiful and touching tales you'll ever play. The free trial allows you ten hours to play through the first level of the game.

Dead Space III should also be on your list. It is one of my all-time best co-op games ever, and while you're at it, grab the first game in the series for free via Origin's "On the House" offer and keep it forever. I am very excited about the game in my number five slot as it's the first series to enter the Vault that is not an EA title! Batman: Arkham Origins and other Warner Bros. games are now also available in the Vault. That's right; EA is expanding the service to include games from other publishers, which is fantastic news. Our reviewer described Origins as a "long, deep and interesting in multiple ways," and it's simply a must play. Arkham Knight is not yet available in the Vault, but some of the Batman LEGO series as well as Arkham City are already available.

I've wanted to try the Orwell series, so I'm grabbing the first game via the free trial. In closing, remember you can unsubscribe from the free trial at any moment; it will cost you R48.50 to join for one month, and R299 to get access for a year. You'll also get 10% discount on all EA Origin releases, as well as early access to upcoming games via the Play First Trial. If you don't want to subscribe, then just enjoy the free trial offer until March 26. If you miss it, then you can make use of the seven-day free trial at any time.
