UPDATE: EA Access subscribers will get early access to Battlefield Hardline, the game, not the beta, as the article originally stated. It has been amended to reflect that.
EA Access is a subscription-based program that offers gamers access to EA games at a monthly rate, including demos and early trial periods, and is currently only exclusive to Xbox One. As Battlefield’s Twitter states, subscribers will gain advanced entry to Hardline before its official March 17 launch.
@MaximumXtreme Yes, you will be able to get early access to Battlefield Hardline through EA Access.

The service was similarly offered to the PlayStation 4 audience, but, ultimately, Sony decided that “it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect”.
