Battlefield 1 Is Available for Free on Origin and EA Access

If you're a subscriber, Battlefield 1 is now yours.

Electronic Arts has quietly made Battlefield 1 free on its Origin Access and EA Access subscription services. The company has yet to announce the move, but players noticed the change over this morning.

If you're an Origin Access member, you can visit the Battlefield 1 page or on your Origin client. If you're an EA Access member, you can check out the Access client on Xbox One to find the game. In both cases, your subscription needs to be active to download the game for free.

The Access program at Electronic Arts costs $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. It gives you unlimited access to a catalog of over 75 EA games, and the program offers early trials and head starts on EA biggest games. The current selection of EA Access titles includes Titanfall 2, FIFA 17, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Need for Speed, Oxenfree, Unravel, and more.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
