Seems like EA and Xbox may have something planned for E3, perhaps coinciding with more backwards compatible games joining the vault?

Mass effect 2 and 3 pal, possibly included with the new mass effect also.

Command and conquer is on its way too.

Those are the only ones I know for sure.

It's probably more to do with the fact that all EA Access users will be able to trial BF1 for free 5 days ahead of release.
I wonder if it will allow access to the trials too? I've got a 12 month sub but haven't redeemed yet due to backlog. Really fancy a go on the newer need for speed though

Why pay beta testers when players will pay you for the privilege?

Red Dead Redemption is rumoured after being released briefly a few months ago and various sources saying RDR 2 will be announced at E3. not verified but im hoping its true.
I'd be happy if they did make Red Dead Redemption a backwards compatible game but I still have the game and 360 if I really want to play it. Remasters aren't everyone's cup of tea but there's millions to be made out of a remaster that includes the Undead Game too. It baffles me that they remaster games like Metro (which was never that popular on the previous consoles) yet they haven't done RDR. Bully, yes, but not RDR. Strange.

No that's not what I mean at all. The point of that trial period would be to sell it to those who didn't already pre-order therefore it would be in nobody's interest for them to allow a 5-day trial on a broken build.

Considering Rockstar shunned E3 years ago and vowed never to bother with it again I doubt that will happen unless they do a platform-exclusive marketing deal like they did with the GTA V remaster.

They never released RDR on PC either. That was a missed opportunity

Red dead was added to the closed preview programme in January, it's buggy as hell so there still working on it.

You should of seen how bad black ops 1 when that was added, DLC maps didnt work correctly and zombies broke

last time i checked GTAV is on xbox one as well. I recon microsoft will have the deal due to the backward compatibility being tested for RDR then pulled. it will be put on the store when they announce RDR2 on xbox one during E3. Thats my thoughts on this. secondly, what happened with rockstar and sony exclusive Agent ? was looking forward to seeing what that would be but alas, nothing ever came of it.

to be fair though, RDR was buggy as hell anyway. Hope they can iron out the bugs though as dont have 360 anymore but still have the game.

It matters to the console manufacturer. It matters to them a lot.
Could be that Star Wars Battlefront and/or Need For Speed move into the vault around that time.
PGA Tour Golf went on last week and NBA 16 is added on 29th May.

Enough dinlows on here reckon Star Wars would not be in the vault till next year, even though nigh on every other EA game appears in there within 8 months of launch, not to mention the more people that have this game the more people to buy the map packs they're milking to the max.

Then again these invariably tend to be the very same types that reckon an apple a year for Access is a stripe up, I managed to get mine for 14 quid which was a no brainer (_;) even for a 100% hater of EA and FIFA like me #AMF

Even at full whack Access costs an apple a year, divide that by 365 days and you get something like five or six pennies.

This 'amazing' freebie deal is worth 60 PENCE max, please could everyone put that in to context eh (_;)

Edit: are those of us who are paid up Access members going to get these extra days put on our sub is something I'd like to know?
