Battlefield Hardline is a departure from the classic military stylings for the franchise, so you may not have given it a try. If you own an Xbox One and are an EA Access member, you’ll have a reason to give it a go next month.
The game’s listing in the EA Access hub on Xbox One identifies it as being slated for inclusion in “the vault.” This is the section of the app that includes games that are free to play with an active membership.
EA Access offers a solid value at $ 5 per month, and that only increases as more games are added to the vault. I’ve not jumped in yet, but each time I see a game I haven’t played become available for free (with membership), I’m tempted.
