Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One will be able to try on-demand game service EA Access for free this week (starting 19 January). However, this will only grant them access to the service's back-catalogue and not the 10-hour trials available for recently released games.

EA announced last week that they would be making EA Access free for a brief period, but only confirmed the lack of trials earlier today (19 January) in response to a fan query on Twitter. "Play First Trials are not available through the Free Play Days that start [today]," read the EA Access account's tweet.

Gold subscribers will be able to try out Access from Tuesday 19 January until Sunday 24 January, after which they'll have to pay £3.99 for a one month sub or fork out a reasonable £19.99 for twelve months. The "Vault" portion of EA Access includes Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Titanfall, Fifa 15, Madden 15, Battlefield 4, Plants and Zombies: Garden Warfare and Peggle, among a few others.

As well as access to this, paying EA Access users also get early access for a timed period (typically 10 hours but not always) to all EA releases, including recent games like Star Wars Battlefront, Fifa 16 and future releases like EA Sports UFC 2, Garden Warfare 2 and platformer Unravel – which will instead offer the first two levels (likely because the entire game is less than or around 10 hours in length).
