EA Access and Origin Access subscribers can jump into Battlefield 1 right now — publisher Electronic Arts has set the trial live on the services one day early, according to reports on Twitter and Reddit.

The download requires 44.95 GB of free space on Xbox One. You may need to visit the demo section of the Xbox Games Store in order to download the trial, according to Eurogamer. EA began allowing Origin Access subscribers to preload the Windows PC version of the trial this morning — it weighs in at 40.39 GB — and the Origin Access trial is also live now.

Battlefield 1’s Play First Trial was set to go live tomorrow, Oct. 13, five days before the game launches for people who pre-order the $79.99 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition. (The public release is set for Oct. 21.)

Unlike typical EA Access trials, the one for Battlefield 1 does not offer the full game during the early-access period. Subscribers can play for a total of 10 hours across two campaign missions — “Storm of Steel” and “Through Mud and Blood” — and in multiplayer action, four modes (Conquest, Rush, Operations and Domination) on five maps (St. Quentin Scar, Amiens, Sinai Desert, Fao Fortress and Suez).

The trials are available to all EA Access and Origin Access subscribers, and players can carry progress forward to the full game if they buy it after the trial period.

Battlefield 1 is also launching simultaneously on PlayStation 4, but early access is not not available on that platform. For more on Battlefield 1, check out our interview with developer EA DICE from Gamescom.
