The "early access tutorial" is just the tutorial for playing the multiplayer.
Full game is 43GB but once it's "Ready to play" at about 12GB you can go right into multiplayer on the main menu.
Ready up and start, this will put you in to the tutorial.
You'll first have to shoot some stationary objects.
Next you'll have to stand in a capture point. Then you'll have to kill actual enemies.
Then you will need to revive a fallen ally.
Then go to another capture point.
You will unlock this and Apex (below). All in all this should take you less than ten minutes and then you can go do whatever you want for the next 6+ hours you have left with the trial.

Update:
One person has reported they weren't able to start multiplayer once the "Ready to play" notification popped. So I advise starting the download as soon as possible.
Thanks Spirochaete.

This also may be one of your last chances to unlock Challenge Accepted! in the TrueAchievement app if you still have access to snap functionality.

Thanks El Ninio GRE.
El Ninio GRESince this is an extremely easy challenge, don't forget that you can use it to win the "Challenge Accepted!" achievement from the TrueAchievements app.

Don't wait too long because Microsoft is considering to remove the snap functionality in the next Xbox update and the achievement may become discontinued...

WeezleramIs EA Access required to get early access?
Posted by Weezleram on 19 Mar 17 at 03:16
mcnichoj@Mobbingzone: Sorry to hear that. You should go report that issue on the EA forums or try contacting support. Hopefully you can get it resolved in time.

@Weezleram: That should be a given. It costs $5USD for one month, so you can start a membership and then cancel it before the month is done if you just want this challenge.

The Shepard SR2What time does this officially end? I know it says March 21st, but is that at 00:00AM or 23:59PM? Also, what time zone does this go by? Because MEA comes unlocks at 21:00PM PST on the 20th for me, and I suspect this might be when the challenge ends too, which would really suck!
Posted by The Shepard SR2 on 19 Mar 17 at 04:35
mcnichojThe challenge should end before it officially comes out anywhere.

Grimace221Can this be done in the play first trial? Or only if you have purchased the game through EA access?
Posted by Grimace221 on 19 Mar 17 at 17:45
mcnichojI'm not really sure. They seem to be the same thing.

OZRIC DUBCan only access single player at 12gb "ready to start" . Not fair for those in UK, game out 23rd, challenge ends 21st. May miss it as still downloading. I've played 1 hour of my trial does that mean I won't be able to play the remaining 9hrs tomorrow?
Posted by OZRIC DUB on 20 Mar 17 at 21:08
mcnichojMake sure to check back here as once the challenge has less than 24 hours left TA will update to semi-clock that gives a rough estimation about how many hours are left. It used to be the case that on the Xbox itself it would show in the achievement app a real time countdown clock but I haven't checked that in forever and people are on all on different firmwares.
So hopefully your game downloads the multiplayer and you have enough time to get it done.

Cpt Obvious1994@Sun Rei Shin Well, no one is getting it right now, since no one can sign in on Xbox.
