  • Battlefield 1 Screenshots

Battlefield 1 originally released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC back in October a year ago to a critical acclaim.

Amongst the trials and games they have released following their outline, the most notable is that Titanfall 2 became available on EA Access of Origin Access at the end of July, and now, Battlefield 1 is available.

Battlefield 1's explosive multiplayer action focuses on team play and unique combat roles on land, in the sky, and at sea. It is called In the Name of the Tsar and introduces the Russian army, alongside new maps and weaponry.

People on NeoGAF discovered that Battlefield 1 is now available on EA Access on Xbox One. The Xbox version does get the advantage of more EA Sports titles like Madden and Federation Internationale de Football Association, but Origin users can dive into any of the first three Mass Effect games as well as the Dragon Age titles and other EA IPs like Crysis and Dead Space. Currently, EA Access claims to bolster over 45 games whereas Origin Access has over 75 and counting. The WW1 shooter follows Titanfall 2, which was added to the EA Access vault last week. With both games now coming to the Access Vault, it opens the floodgates for new players to join. The Titanfall 2 campaign was particularly well received, though unfortunately the game didn't sell too well during the crowded holiday season. In addition, the service features pre-release access as well as a nifty discount on all digital purchases for games from the publisher.

Neither EA Access nor Origin Access is available on the PlayStation 4.
