    "UNITING FOR INCLUSION AND PLAY" Oh my, of all the gray, flavorless, corporate spunk these guys so often shoot out onto the public's largely gormless faces, this is among the more obviously formulaic and focus-tested sounding lines.

    2.4/10, not enough buzzword.:yay:

    Don't get me wrong, if EA gave money to charity, that's great, and the free games are bound to make some people happy; I'm just criticizing the shallow way they try and "subtly" manipulate people to feel all fuzzy-fuzzy about their corporation, and not just in this particular instance.

    2 questions:

    1.Does Origin Access cost money to use? for pc users?
    2. Is the original Star wars 2015 battlefront, one of the free to play games that is apart of this deal?

    The game you get on disc for not preordering or purchasing the requisite dlc, *is* the *paid* trial.

    Origin access already had a free 7 day trial offer. This is just an expiration date.
