EA announced that it plans to release a Mass Effect Andromeda 10-hour trial before launch.
The offer is available for all Access subscribers, who can play the highly anticipated sci-fi RPG on March 16, five days before the game comes out on March 21 – that is in NA territories, because the game will be released on March 23 in EU.
Basically, all subscribers of EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access on PC will get a free Mass Effect Andromeda 10-hour trial, with the noteworthy mention that the progress will carry over in the final game, if they decide to buy it – you can pick up right where you left off, bonus points here.
@N7Follower All of your progress during ME:A Play First Trial will carry over when the game launches.

If you don’t know already, EA Access is a subscription service that includes discounts when purchasing EA games, early access trials just like the one for Mass Effect: Andromeda, and a considerable number of free full EA games to download from the Vault – Battlefield 3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 were recently added to the collection.
Sorry PlayStation 4 users, the service is only available on Xbox One and PC, hence you won’t get the Mass Effect Andromeda 10-hour trial. However, there is still some hope, because you can sign up for the Multiplayer Beta right now.
BioWare confirmed that there won’t be any Season Pass available for Andromeda, though it hasn’t specified if there will be any story or multiplayer DLC. If previous Mass Effect games are an indication, we can rest assured there will be plenty of content available for Mass Effect: Andromeda too.
In other news, you can craft your own weapons in the game and then name them as you please. You can read more about craftable weapons here.
Do you have an EA Access / Origin Access subscription? What do you think about the Mass Effect: Andromeda 10-hour trial? Will you dedicate all that time to try the multiplayer or lose it to create the perfect RPG character?
