Even though BFV officially launches on November 20, there are several Battlefield V Early Access options available for those who want to enter the front lines sooner.
But, before we talk about all the options available to play early, don’t forget to make use of the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass giveaway that ends on October 31. You can download all four Battlefield 1 expansions for free; They Shall Not Pass, In the Name of the Tsar, Turning Tides, and Apocalypse. The offer is available on PS4, PC, and Xbox One. You need the Battlefield 1 base game to play the expansions, and it’s currently on sale for PS4 as Deal of the Week, and free to download for Origin and EA Access subscribers.
Battlefield V Standard Edition
- Battlefield V Standard Edition PS4 – R999
- Battlefield V Standard Edition Xbox One – R899 with EA Access / R999 without
- Battlefield V Standard Edition PC – R949
The Standard Edition of Battlefield V contains no early access to the game, however, it does contain the Enlister Pre-Order Bonus. These pre-order incentives include the following:
- The Firestorm Ranger Set
- Special Assignments
- Special Soldier Set that can be chosen from eight available Sets in Battlefield V.
- Immediate Access to Five Battlefield 1 Weapons Ready for use in Battlefield 1, five weapons that bridge the technological gap between the two world wars.
Battlefield V Early Access for PC
Origin Access Premier is your best option to get Battlefield V early access and to unlock the full game. If you don’t want to pay the R200 monthly subscription fee, then your second best option is Origin Access. You won’t unlock the full game, but instead, get a 10-hour free trial. Another important difference between the two subscription options is that with Origin Access you get to play only two of the four War Stories campaigns. You do, however, get access to all eight multiplayer maps and modes.
Another reason to choose Origin Access Premier is that it unlocks the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition which includes a lot of extra goodies. Origin Access unlocks the Battlefield V Standard Edition.
Both Origin Access and Origin Access Premier include additional benefits like 10% discount on all EA Origin games, access to all games in the Vault, and more.
- With Origin Access (R48.50 monthly) you can play the Battlefield V Standard Edition on November 9 for a maximum of 10 hours.
- With Origin Access Premier (R199.95 monthly) you unlock the full Battlefield V Deluxe Edition on November 9 with no limit on play time.
Lastly, keep in mind that you can cancel both subscriptions at any time with the click of a button.
Battlefield V Early Access for Xbox One
Xbox One owners also get a subscription benefit with EA Access – it is exactly the same as Origin Access. You unlock all multiplayer modes and maps, and two single-player War Stories; Prologue and Under No Flag.
- With EA Access (R48.50 monthly) you can play the Battlefield V Standard Edition on November 9 for a maximum of 10 hours.
Battlefield V Early Access: PS4 & Non-Subscription Offers
The only way to play BFV early for PS4 players and those on PC and Xbox One who don’t want to be tied to a subscription model is through purchasing the Deluxe Edition.
The Battlefield V Deluxe Edition includes the Enlister Offer and gives you early access from November 15. The Enlister Offer includes special assignments, the Firestorm Ranger Set, the Paratrooper Outfit, and most importantly, immediate access to five Battlefield 1 weapons.
Battlefield V Deluxe Edition – Digital Purchase Price List:
- Battlefield V Deluxe Edition for Xbox One: R1199
- Battlefield V Deluxe Edition for PS4: R1199
- Battlefield V Deluxe Edition for PC R1150
Battlefield V Deluxe Edition – Retail Purchase Price List:
- PS4: Raru R1149 / Loot R1129 / BT Games R1199 / CNA R1300
- Xbox One: Raru R1149 / Loot R1129 / BT Games R1199 / CNA R1300
Looking at the above prices I highly recommend that PC and Xbox One players rather choose one of the subscription models. If you don’t like Battlefield V, then you can simply cancel your subscription or choose not to purchase the game after you’ve tried it. Remember, you don’t own any games you unlock; you can purchase it at 10% discount, or play it as long as you are a subscriber on Origin Access Premier.
For everyone else, Battlefield V releases on November 20 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
