With three days left before the launch, Madden NFL 22 is giving EA Play subscribers and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members more time to try out the game after the early access got riddled with issues related to individual countdown timers and accessing the game.
As announced before, the EA Play/ Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership was supposed to let you play the Madden NFL 22 trial version in early access but it is only a 10-hour long one, which means once the hour count is up, you’ll have to wait for the official launch. The game should appear available for download for EA Play subscribers on consoles. For PC players, the game’s Dynasty and MVP editions unlock three days before the official launch but they haven’t got the EA Play trial.
The trial had been opened for subscribers on August 12 only but reports regarding the playtime countdowns going on long after the players had exited the game created a problem that EA had to address which it did by giving the premium subscribers an unlimited amount of time to play the game until 11:59 PM ET on Tuesday, August 17. As mentioned above, Madden NFL 22’s early release date for the game’s MVP and Deluxe Edition pre-orders happens to be August 17 only.
For those struggling with the countdown-related issue, EA offered suggestions like rebooting the console using the Xbox menu after playing the game. With Madden NFL 21, there have been similar issues in the past.
