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.
