Earlier this month it was confirmed there would be some kind of early access to Mass Effect: Andromeda and today more details have been revealed.
Anyone who subscribes to EA Access (Origin Access for PC) will be able to play ten hours of the game starting 16 March. Any progress made in the game can also be carried over into the full release which is always a bonus.
All of your progress during ME:A Play First Trial will carry over when the game launches.

Be warned though, 10 hours is not a long time to get really stuck if you really want to mess with character customisation.
10 hours is barely enough time to make sure your character is looking exactly as you want them to look.

Mass Effect: Andromeda releases on 21 March and the early access kick off date applies to all regions.
