Update: Many people have been wondering when they can play the EA Access trial for Madden 17. The trial was supposed to go live on August 18th in North America. That should be right now, but the Madden 17 EA Access Trial is not working for everyone.
If you go on Twitter, you can see a lot of comments of people having trouble trying to launch the Madden 17 trial via EA Access. Other social media sites are seeing similar complaints from users that can’t access the game.
If you are having trouble finding the trial itself, you have to visit Madden 17’s listing on the Xbox Live marketplace and then click on the “download trial” button. A small number of people have been able to play the trial already, although it appears most people will have to wait.
There are a lot of people getting messages that they are “too early” to play the game even though that they have an EA Access subscription. Hopefully those people can finally play the game once EA gets these issues sorted out.
Judging by review scores, this looks like a decent year for the Madden franchise.
