Battlefield V will have a free week-long demo in case you manage to grab a key in time. The offer will stand for only 24 hours after the announcement, so act quickly if you want to get it. Bear in mind you will need a Twitter account.

Fallout 76 and Battlefield V are having a hard time these days, as both Bethesda and EA took abysmal steps in both series' directions. On the bright side for Battlefield V, at least the gameplay is not plagued with terrible AI and game-breaking bugs.

It doesn't seem to be doing well with sales though, as several outlets have reported terrible results and just like Fallout 76, Battlefield V is seeing discounts already. On top of that, EA have announced a day-long event that will let players play Battlefield V for free for a week.

Players will need Origin and Twitter accounts, and will need to directly message EA Help on Twitter, with #TRYBFV in the tweet. Following the procedure, EA Help should give them a key that will activate Origin Access Basic for seven days.

Technically, this should also add access to any other games that get unlock with the Origin Access service, so it is unclear whether EA did something that would only allow access to Battlefield V, since that's the game they specifically mentioned for the promotion.

Whatever turns out to be the case, this is not a good indicator for Battlefield V, since early discounts and free trials usually point to low player numbers, which are quite important in multiplayer games, as you may imagine.

The game has already suffered a lot of backlash for historical inaccuracies EA DICE forced into it with the infamous announcement trailer, and they continued via the War Story missions.

It looks like the fans took Patrick Soderlund's words to heart, and simply chose not to buy the game. If you're still on the fence whether you should buy the game, this may be the prime opportunity to try it out for free. The offer will end at about 15:00 CET / 06:00 PDT on 01 December 2018.
