[H]ardOCP: EA Announces Origin Access Premier

During EA's E3 2018 conference, or EA Play 2018, the company broke the news surrounding their new service; Origin Access Premier.

The new subscription tier launches this summer for $15 per month or $100 per year, compared to $5 per month or $30 per year for Origin Access Basic.

Through Origin Access Premier, users will be able to enjoy full access to new Electronic Arts releases on PC before their official release dates, including Anthem, Battlefield V, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, and Madden NFL 19. This is bit costly compared to the regular service of Origin Access pricing only $4.99/month, and $29.99 per year. Plus, the full games will be available through the new subscription service before they are commercially released, Polygon has learned. For Madden 19, Premier members will play the game on August 2nd, 8 days before its worldwide August 10th launch.

Will Origin Access Premier be for you?

EA also confirmed the Battle Royale mode coming to the game.

Basically, this more or less seems like EA's version of Xbox Game Pass. In Origin Access Premier, this does not apply. Imagine paying one low monthly or annual fee and getting to play new EA PC titles before launch.

In addition to this all, EA is also working on a cloud-based gaming subscription service.

Full, unlimited access to EA games, starting five days before they release. As a Premium subscriber, you are able to access all of the benefits of the basic Origin package. They want more depth in their favorite games, and fresh content that can hold their attention year-round.
