For those expecting to try EA’s Madden 15 before they commit to purchasing, you might want to take a seat. It has come about that EA will not offer a demo of the game as they have done for nearly the last decade. The demo has traditionally launched a few weeks before the full game and gave players a taste of what is to come.
In fact the only way to play the game before its August 26th release date is to subscribe to the EA Access program on Xbox One. Members will receive early access to trials of this game and others up to five days before their full launch.
Not having a demo of a sports game isn’t such a big deal since these games tend to not change dramatically between releases. What would be more of a concern is that if EA were to stop releasing demos of other types of games as well, thus severely limiting ones ability to test drive a game before buying.
