Play the Madden 22 Trial now with Xbox Game Pass

While Xbox Game Pass subscribers can't currently download and keep Madden 22 indefinitely, they do actually have a way to start playing right away.

Xbox Game Pass gets most EA titles through the service having EA Play included in their library, and as such Xbox Game Pass subscribers get the same perks that come with an EA Play subscription.


One of those happens to be a full access 10-hour EA Play Trial of most of their major titles, and that includes Madden 22.

The Madden 22 Trial includes full game access, but with the caveat that after 10 hours of play time you'll have to purchase it to keep playing.

If you do happen to snag the EA Play Trial to experience Madden 22, make sure to close the game out entirely and restart your console when you're done playing it.

There have been issues since launch with the title's 10-hour time limit decreasing when players hop back to the dashboard, so make sure it's closed out if you don't wanna lose any of that time.
