How do early trials work?

Download our early trials to get early access to our newest games. Play the full games for a limited time before launch.

You can play all of the trial straight through, or spread your gaming over several days. You'll get updates letting you know how much time you have left.

Here are some tips so you can get the most out of the trials.

  • Download the game completely before starting your trial.
  • Make sure to quit the game or switch apps when you’re not playing. Time keeps counting down if you leave the game open on your system and walk away to do something else.

We can’t reset or add more time to EA Play early trials, and neither can the Xbox Support team.

When your trial ends, buy the full game to keep playing. Your stats and progress will be waiting for you.

Games removed from The Play List

From time to time, we’ll remove games from The Play List to make room for newer ones.

How do I cancel?

  1. Log in to
  2. Click Services & subscriptions.
  3. Click Payment & billing under EA Play.

Things to note:

  • If you cancel your membership, you’ll keep your game progress (as long as you don’t manually delete your save files) and all earned Achievements. However, you can’t continue playing the games you’ve downloaded unless you buy them or reactivate your membership. When you reactivate your membership or buy the games, you can pick up right where you left off the next time you play.
  • Once you cancel your membership, you will keep your membership benefits until the end of your membership period.
  • You can ask Xbox Support to cancel your membership if you want to stop EA Play right away, but you won’t be eligible for a refund of any unused time.
  • If your membership expires, any purchases you made with your 10% member discount are yours to keep.
