Origin Access Premier will launch next week

Origin Access Premier will launch next week

The gaming company just announced that it will launch its Origin Access Premier to PC gamers starting on Monday (July 30). It's fairly realistic to imagine other big publishers and platform holders to soon offer their own subscription services.

It is priced at $14.99 a month, or $99.99 a year, and gives users access to the latest EA titles five days before their official release date. Similarly to Microsoft's Game Pass, Premier will give players day-one access to brand new games from EA's library, including the likes of Battlefield V, Federation Internationale de Football Association and Anthem. What do you think of this new tier to Origin Access?

Origin Access Premier will be significantly more expensive than regular Origin Access. While much of the details were not available upon initial announcement, the pricing, however, was shared on EA's FAQ page at that time. The service will function similar to Xbox Game Pass, with the added benefit of early access. Then in October, Premier subscribers will get access to Battlefield V and in February, they'll get access to Anthem. The price of basic accounts will stay the same too, clocking in at $4.99 per month. "You get access to the full game - yours to play whenever you want, for as long as you're a Premier member". In fact, EA is offering a five-day head start for every single new title to those with a subscription. That is, basic subscribers (which is now $5 per month or $30 per year) will have access to Electronic Art's growing library of older PC titles known as The Vault, and access to Play First Trials, thus enabling members to play new games for up to ten hours, starting five days before launch. And if you end up not liking the game, you can simply move on without worry of all the money you paid.
