FIFA 15 through EA Access on Xbox One is now available to download as a timed trial. Subscribers to the service will get six hours of play time before it expires with the timer ticking down whenever the game is loaded regardless of whether it is being played, menus are being navigated through, or if there is any activity taking place at all. So make sure to exit out and close the application from the Xbox One home screen when not in use.
The trial will expire on Tuesday regardless of whether the six hours have been used when a full copy will be required to continue playing. Game saves are stored on the hard drive so records online and progress in Career, Ultimate Team or any other modes will carry over. The complete game is accessible during the trial period.
EA Access was announced in late July and is exclusive to the Xbox One only because Sony has declined to offer the service through PlayStation 4. It includes the “Vault” which offers unlimited play with some older games from the company’s catalog, 10% off all digital purchases, and the ability to play games up to five days before they release with a limited timed trial. EA Access is $30 for a full year or $5 month-to-month.

We are onto the Elimination Round, check below to see how the standings ended up after the Round Robin & who plays who in the Elimination Round.
The latest trailer for the Xbox One and PS4 version of FIFA 14 was released earlier today and puts the spotlight on the environments, atmosphere, and gameplay enhancements. At this point more specific details on all the features, demonstrations of the improvements, and direct feed gameplay video should be on the way for FIFA with just three weeks until the PS4 arrives. There is a good deal of gameplay footage out there but all having been captured off-screen from conventions which is not ideal for consumers seeking to evaluate a product.
As the release of FIFA 12, EA’s soccer powerhouse, just mere months away here are some trailers you may have missed. The first trailer is of Gameplay & Accolades with the second being an interview with Martin Tyler & Alan Smith.
