EA Origin Access Premier Subscription Service Starts Next Week

EA is launching Origin Access Premier - an unlimited PC gaming subscription service - next week, reported The Verge. Today the company confirmed that the program will begin next week.

The most premium part of the new offering is that Origin Access Premier subscribers will get early access to every new EA title.

EA Origin Access Premier Subscription Service Starts Next Week

Unveiled at this year's E3, the new Netflix-like service is superior to the existing Origin Access subscription service which will now become the basic membership tier. In return for your money, you gain access to 75 EA games with the service slowly opening up to also offer non-EA titles.

Of course, there are far more questions than answers right now on EA's Origin Access Premier. "And certainly from a gamer standpoint, the feedback was very, very positive in terms of the opportunity to access more great games at great value with reduced friction", Wilson said. The price of basic accounts will stay the same too, clocking in at $4.99 per month. People who are into sports games and first-person shooters might be more willing to play all those games if it costs $15 per month or $100 for the year instead of the full $60 at retail. If you're looking for a game that just launched, Origin (or EA Access, a similar plan for the Xbox One) isn't for you. The company has a lineup of flagship titles just waiting to debut: Madden NFL 19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V, and Anthem are all set to debut within the next six months. Play any games that have already been added, as much as you want. On top of that, you'll also get "10% discount in the Origin Store on full games, pre-orders, expansions, Federation Internationale de Football Association points, and more". It's a good offer, but the games don't include new titles. EA has launched a help page online, but it's anemic at the moment.
