Those who purchased the Electronic Arts EA Access subscription service - which costs £3.99 a month - can have early access to the hotly-anticipated title, while those who don't will have to wait until its November 17 drop date on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

However, should such news excite 'Star Wars' fans they should bear in mind the early access will only let gamers play the title for a maximum of 10 hours, and the EA Access doesn't work on PS4, only Xbox and PC through Origin Access.

What's more, because there are restrictions it won't be possible to play the entire campaign - even for speedy players.

But those who access the game prematurely will still be able to carry their save data over when the title drops next Friday.

If early users were able to go through the whole campaign then 10 hours should have been plenty of time as Motive Studios producer David Robillard recently revealed it is expected to last between five and eight hours.

He said: "We thought that around five to seven, maybe eight hours is probably a good amount of time ... we wanted to stay very driven towards the 'Star Wars' fantasy that the players are going to experience and not have it be drawn out."

While PS4, Xbox One and PC users only have to wait another week for release, there are no current plans to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch.

David previously said: "This is something we'll explore if we see opportunities there, but it is not something that's on the books right now."
