EA has also announced that Origin Access Premier will be launching on July 30th. This comes with a 10% discount on games purchased through the Origin Store, as well as five-day early access to newly released titles and ten hours of play without purchase.
That's right, no more limited-time trials.
EA's new Origin Access Premiere subscription folds perfectly into the company's digital-driven focus on live services.
EA Origin Access Premier launches next week for $14.99 a month or $99.99 a year
For users who plan to play multiple EA titles each year, and are hesitant to buy games before thoroughly testing them, the new subscription service may prove to be an attractive offer. Its price is $99.99 per-year, or users can also pay $14.99 per month. 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. Play any games that have already been added, as much as you want.
Upgrading to a Premier account still grants that 10% discount and Vault access, but in a freshly-published FAQ, EA says that subscribers will get "full, unlimited access to our games, starting five days before they launch". The games generally weren't EA's latest and greatest but free is free, and dated or not a lot of the games it offered were really quite good.
Origin Access Premier does something more, anyway.
So, if you're looking forward to incoming titles like Battlefield V, Madden 19, or Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, but you don't like the idea of dropping $60 for each of them, it sounds like getting a Premier subscription might not be a bad way to play through them all. The company will likely update it as time goes on.
