Latest - Trial drops early
Due to start at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST, the EA Play Trial is already able to be downloaded.
There was a slight delay between it being available on PS4 compared to PS5, so if you saw some Tweets and thought it was a hoax then check again!
Make the most of the 10 hours
Make sure if you aren't playing the game to fully close down the application.
Any time of it running in the background will use up the 10-hour limit.
You will have to fully close the apps:
- Xbox users - you need to manually quit the game
- PlayStation users - close the application manually
- PC users - closing the window will be enough
