Both the picture and the link are linked to the image itself.

And just 10 hours? That's barely anything lol.

10 hours is pretty standard demo time, baring in mind that's exactly what it is. They did the same for BF1, 10 hours is plenty.

Well, it's a bonus demo for people that are paying for their game subscription service.

I don't normally (in fact ever) defend EA, but you get *a lot* for your money on Origin Access for PC...

Also remember that Origin Access gives PC gamers 10% off sales from the Origin storefront, so if you buy the full game there you essentially get all your money back in savings.

The price is pretty reasonable for what you get, especially if you play all the free games in one or two months and just end your sub after.

Yeah i get that, its not a bad service for the money, but to me this just sends the wrong message entirely, reason being, EA finally bothers to make a demo and then not release it to the wild and show they have huge confidence in their game, i mean, it would be the right thing to do after mass effect 3 for the mess that was, but nahhh subs only, its just edgy to me.

If it's anything like BF1, it's not really a demo. It's access to the full product, for 10 hours.

Fair play for a demo. Played Mirror's Edge catalyst for free and found out it totally wasn't worth £40. In the end I snagged it for about a tenner, great game for a tenner.

Not bought BF1 yet and tbh? I doubt I will now unless it comes free with a pack of cereal or something.
