  • grubb [11:24 AM] EA brings cloud gaming and day-one games to its subscription service

Basically, this more or less seems like EA's version of Xbox Game Pass.

The service acts as an expanded option on top of the Origin Access service now available on PC, though Premier will provide players access to full versions of EA's upcoming new titles, in a similar capacity to Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass. "Origin Access Premier" is a new game streaming service for PC gamers, as a premium extension of Origin Access.

Being a member also means games from other publishers such as Batman: Arkham Asylum, INSIDE, The Witness, and more are playable. With Origin Access you had a 10 hour trial period for new EA games. It's not happening. Producer Ben Haumiller told GameSpot today at the EA Play event ahead of E3 2018 that while Madden 19 isn't coming to Switch, future instalments could.

What's that mean? Origin Access Premier subscribers will get access to Madden NFL 19, which is making its PC comeback, as well as Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V, and Anthem when they come out.

To this day, Origin Access has existed to provide access to older games in the PC gaming vault from Electronic Arts. It costs $14.99 per month or $99.99 per year. The biggest addition will be instant access to new games as they release. People that pre-order the standard edition of the game will be able to play it starting August 10th.

For those who have already been participating in EA's Origin program, you'll know that Origin Access contains a huge backlog of games in itself.
