Madden 19 Trial Now Available on EA Origin Access and Xbox One

Madden 19 Trial Now Available on EA Origin Access and Xbox One

Test out Madden 19 now, days before launch.

The trial for Madden 19 is now available on Xbox and Origin Early Access for players who want to experience EA's latest football sports sim. What's more, the full game is also available for subscribers to EA's new EA Origin Access Premier tier.

One of the benefits of EA's new Origin Access Premier tier is the chance to play new EA games in full days before the official launch. EA Origin Access Basic members are only allowed to play a trial version of new EA games like Madden 19 for a limited amount of time. The same for Xbox One's trial program.

Madden 19 is EA's newest football sim and features several new features. There are now Custom Drafts in Franchise Mode, better Zone Coverage AI, 'One Cut' features that give players more realistic steps, 'Hit the Home' which lets player AI find gaps in defense more easily, and 'Push the Pile' which should help players gain critical yards in tight situations.

Franchise mode also has a new progression system based on authentic positional archetypes, so you can better build a future for your franchise more efficiently.

EA Origin Access Premier is EA's new subscription tier and costs $14.99 a month of $99.99 a year. The new Premier tier gives players full, unlimited access to new EA games days before launch. It also includes rewards from the lower Basic tier such as discounts on EA games through the Origin store and access to EA's video game library.

We'll have a Madden 19 review up tomorrow, but in the meantime check out our Madden 19 guide for the latest news, info, and breakdowns. Madden 19 will be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on August 7.
