During its E3 2018 Press Conference, EA announced Origin Access Premier, a new subscription service that will allow access to every new EA game on PC. It allows players access to a library of games, as well as new EA PC titles like Battlefield V, Madden NFL 19 and Anthem, when they launch.
Of course, EA already runs a similar service on PC, called Origin Access. It’s similar to the EA Access programme on Xbox One, in that it offers pre-release trials of upcoming games, as well as an instant game collection of games. The difference is that Origin Access Premier will include new EA PC games as they release, similar to what Microsoft does with Xbox Game Pass. It will feature the full games, rather than the trial system used previously.
No further details were given as to what games the service will launch with, though it is likely that it will simply be an upgrade of the existing service. In the trailer, which you can watch below, you can see Batman: Arkham City, Titanfall, Need for Speed, Inside, Plants Vs. Zombies and more.
EA Origin Premier will launch later this summer, it will cost $15 a month or $100 a year. At launch, players will have access to over 100 Origin Access games.
