The service was revealed at E3 2018 as a new membership tier for the existing Origin Access offering, which lets you pay $5 per month or $30 per year to access select titles and play some games before they debut. Today the company confirmed that the program will begin next week. But with the $14.99 a month/$99 a year Origin Access Premiere, users get early access to new games like Anthem and Battlefield V a full five days ahead of release.
EA already offers a subscription service called Origin Access, which costs $29.99 per year and allows you to download games to your computer. "And we're continuing to work with more of the best creators across the industry to add more third-party games to our subscription services".
EA Origin Access Premier launches next week for $14.99 a month or $99.99 a year
EA is going all in on unlimited gaming.
EA's new Origin Access Premiere subscription folds perfectly into the company's digital-driven focus on live services. Premier subscribers also get a 10% discount and access to the ever-growing game library of older titles called The Vault. Hence, you must ask yourself if games like Anthem, Battlefield V, Madden NFL 19, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 are enticing for the price. What do you think of this new tier to Origin Access? It's not a bad deal, but it's limited in scope, which is why it'll become Origin Access Basic when Premier debuts.
