EA announced its Origin Access PC games subscription service back in January 2016 (the similar EA Access service for Xbox One gamers started up in July 2014). 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. These aren't trials but the entire game for members to enjoy before the public can. "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".
Disappointing though it is that we won't be lifting any more free stuff out of EA's pockets, I'm not really surprised that On the House is going away.
Chief Executive Andrew Wilson said Thursday that the company plans to launch its Origin Access Premier subscription service next week.
A new help page has also gone live to tell people about the differences between Origin Access, which is set to be labelled as Origin Access Basic, and Origin Access Premier.
Access to The Vault, a library of games that keeps growing.
EA revealed more about its Origin Access Premier plans at the recent post earnings conference call.
With Access Premier, you can access a boatload of EA games and try them out without needing to dole out cash to buy each title - a major savings if you're someone who often buys games.
Of course, there are far more questions than answers right now on EA's Origin Access Premier.
Do you intend to play EA's latest releases?
The good news is that EA has confirmed that they know about the current outage and are working to fix it as soon as possible. It allows subscribers to play full games such as Battlefield 5, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Madden NFL 19, and Anthem at release or a few days prior. The company will likely update it as time goes on.
