EA Wants to Avoid Spoilers

The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order EA Access bonuses are going to be a little different than usual. Unlike some other games offered up to members of Electronic Arts' subscription program, customers who own this game won't be able to play it early.

The announcement was made in a tweet on the official EA Access Twitter account. There will be a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order EA Access 10% discount off of the full price, so that's certainly a plus. However, Electronic Arts appears to be especially concerned about the game's plot being spoiled.

 

"We've opted not to have early/timed access (Play First Trial), in part to reduce the risk of spoilers," the tweet stated. "Instead, EA Access members get these exclusive cosmetics!"

The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order EA Access Cosmetics

Gamers who are members of EA Access and purchase Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order won't get the game early, but they will get a couple of neat unique cosmetics for the game.

A special skin for a ship and your companion robot will be made available to people who subscribe to EA Access. As noted in this Twitter reply, these are called "Vanguard" cosmetics and are based on the BT-7274 design. The cosmetics will be available for PS4 and Xbox One players through EA Access and PC players through Origin Access.

 

A fair few fans are sure to be disappointed at the lack of an opportunity to play the game early. It's certainly reflected in the Twitter replies, with some people speculating that the restriction is due to a poorly-written story, a short playtime of 10 hours or less, and other reasons. Whatever the reasoning may be, you won't be able to get in early, but you can at least get some pretty neat goodies (and 10% off the price, to boot). You'll be able to play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order when it launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 15, 2019.

What do you think of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order EA Access cosmetics? Do you think they're sufficient compensation to EA Access members in exchange for being unable to play the game early? Let us know in the comments below!
