If you want to play Madden 15 early you have along Madden 15 download waiting before you can start playing Madden 15 early. If you are an EA Access member on the Xbox One you can start the Madden 15 download using the official Smart Glass app.
The early Madden 15 release date is here and gamers who paid $5 a month or $30 a year can download Madden 15 right now so that they can start playing later.
We’ll show you how to download Madden 15 to your Xbox One from work or school so that you can play when you get home. Hopefully your Xbox One is connected to the Internet and on in low power mode so you can use this to start the Madden 15 download remotely.
The first thing you’ll need is the new Xbox One SmartGlass App. This is available for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows. With this app you can access cool companion apps for some games including Madden 15, but the real reason this is good news today is because you can use it to remote download Madden 15 to your Xbox One so it is ready to play when you get home tonight.
After you download the SmartGlass app sign in to your Xbox account. If you aren’t at home you won’t be able to connect to your Xbox One, but that isn’t a problem. You may be able to do this on the Xbox One Store, but we do not see an EA Access option yet.
Tap on the magnifying glass in the top right and type in Madden 15 . Hit search and wait for the results to load.
You will see two Madden 15 download options. The first one for us is the EA Access Madden 15 trial. You need to tap on this and then you will see a Get it Free EA Access message on the green checkout button. If you are not already signed up for EA Access this may not work.
On the next screen agree to buy Madden 15 for $0.00 and it should process the transaction and start the download. If you run into any errors you will see a message to search to understand what went wrong.
This is a new feature for the Xbox One Smart Glass app , that Microsoft just added. We were skeptical, but Marc Whitten, confirmed this as a feature last year.
Yes! Of course you can download while you are away. #xboxone – Always up to date, always your console. The beauty of low power mode!

After you confirm the purchase the Madden 15 download should start and if you have a few hours before you get home the 14.79GB download should complete in time for you to start playing.
Keep in mind there is a six hour limit to this Madden 15 trial. The timer is running any time you are in the game, so make sure you exit before you walk away. Downloading will not deduct from this time limit.
If you are on the Xbox One, you can open the EA Access App and go to the Games Screen. When sorting by release date you can scroll all the way to the right to see Madden 15. If you search for Madden 15 you should also see the EA Access Madden 15 download.
This is the same size as the official Madden 15 release date download and it is very likely that you will not need to install the full game when you pick up your disk or if you buy the digital version. The digital Xbox One Madden 15 download is the Madden 15 bundle and it is for the standard edition. The listing shows gamers can download it today with a purchase but it will not unlock for play until 12 AM Pacific/3AM Eastern on August 26th.
