Today during the EA Play press conference at E3, Electronic Arts announced a new subscription service. It’s called Origin Access Premier, and it will offer a full suite of games to members.
Origin Access Premier will allow members to play the newest EA games as they release, as well as a large vault of all their other Origin titles. These major new titles include Madden 19, which is coming to the PC platform for the first time in years.
Origin Access Premier members will also be able to play other upcoming new titles for the platform, including FIFA 19 and the upcoming shooter Battlefield V. In addition, players will even get to play the new upcoming BioWare title Anthem.
One of the benefits of Origin Access Premier is an early unlock of these titles. For Madden 19, Premier members will play the game on August 2nd, 8 days before its worldwide August 10th launch. For FIFA 19, the early play date is September 20th instead of September 28th.
Battlefield V players using Origin Access Premier will play the game 8 days early on October 11th. Finally, Anthem continues the trend of 8-day early access. Premier members can play the title on February 15th, 2019.
In addition to all of this, Premier members receive “unlimited access to The Sims 4, including content from the Digital Deluxe Update, Dine Out Game Pack and Kids Room Stuff Pack.”
Finally, the last major benefit of the new subscription service is storewide discounts. As a Premier member, all Origin purchases after subscribing will be 10% off.
Andrew Wilson stated that the new service launches later this summer. Origin Access Premier will be available for $14.99 per month, or a discounted price of $99 per year. You can learn more about the service on EA’s Origin website.
