For a limited time, EA is giving away access to a seven-day trial of its Origin Access Basic program on PC and all you have to do is ask. Origin Access Basic gives players the ability to play over 100 games for free, as well as access to 10-hour trial access to EA’s newer titles.
To get your free trial, all you need to do is get on Twitter and send a direct message to the EA Help account using the #TRYBFV hashtag but you’ll need to do it soon. This offer closes at around 9 a.m. ET on December 1.
Haven’t had the chance to play #BattlefieldV yet? If you’re on PC, direct message us with the hashtag #TRYBFV in the next 24 hours and we’ll get you in the game for a limited time with a 7-day trial for Origin Access Basic.

You may also need to be patient as it seems EA is responding to messages manually rather than using some kind of automated system. It’s also worth having a look at the EA Help account before you message just in case something has caused the giveaway to stop or be postponed.
Once you have your code, you should just be able to enter it to get in on the Origin Access Basic program. What you do with it for the next seven days is up to you but the obvious intention here is to try out Battlefield 5.
Other new games you could try out include FIFA 19, A Way Out, Battlefront 2, and Unravel 2. If these don’t peak your interest you could always spend a week revisiting the Mass Effect Series or getting lost in The Sims 4.
The Origin Access basic tier usually costs $6.99 per month or $39.99 a year. There is also a Premier tier which comes in at $19.99 a month or $129.99 a year. The more expensive option gives you full access to EA’s newest games rather than just a free trial. It also gives extra content included with new EA games such as expansion packs and other forms of DLC.
