Electronic Arts Announces Origin Access Premier Service Will Roll Out Next Week

Origin Access Premier is going to be a new, higher tier of subscription to EA's service.

EA is offering early access to new games for members, meaning Madden 19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V, and Anthem will all be playable on Premier five days before launch.

Origin Access Premier does something more, anyway.

During EA's call to investors yesterday discussing its Q1 2019 results, company CEO Andrew Wilson announced Origin Access Premier would launch next week on PC.


Origin Access Premier will complement EA's existing Origins Access on PC (and EA Access on Xbox One). In a market that was utterly dominated by Steam, EA needed a way to attract attention to its own platform, and nothing says "look over here" like the promise of free games.

Now is probably the best time EA will find to launch Origin Access Premier. Games are also only added after several months of being released.

That means the $14.99 a month subscription is a great way to check out EA's new titles, and if you finish them before the month is over, you'll save a fair whack of change compared to buying them new. The previous Origin Access sub has been renamed as Origin Access Basic and offers the same benefits while the premium tier will be called Origin Access Premier and promises full access to even the newest titles released under EA.

Full, unlimited access to our games, starting five days before they launch. In fact, EA is offering a five-day head start for every single new title to those with a subscription. That probably isn't an issue if you only play through a game once-or don't plan to cancel-but it's worth noting. Hence, you must ask yourself if games like Anthem, Battlefield V, Madden NFL 19, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 are enticing for the price.
