If you haven’t started to pay $10 per month to access the collection of movies from Netflix, Electronic Arts hopes you will be tempted to pay $5 per month to access its collection of games through EA Origin Access.
Two years have passed since Electronic Arts has released a subscription service for the Xbox owners. By its name, EA Access, the plan incorporated most of the titles from the company’s portfolio and if at that time you were jealous on the console users because you were a PC gamer, you’ll be pleased to hear that the same service was launched for the Windows platform. There are no differences between the two services except their names: EA Access vs EA Origin Access.
The bad news with the $5 fee is that you will only receive access to the older games created by EA and you will still be forced to pay in the event of the launch of a new Battlefield for example. The good part is that you can have access to all upcoming betas and 10% discount on any upcoming product.
For now, the following titles are available:
- Battlefield 3
- Battlefield 4
- Battlefield Hardline
- Dragon Age Origins
- Dragon Age 2
- Dragon Age Inquisition
- The Sims 3
- FIFA 15
- Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare
- Need for Speed Rivals
- Dead Space 1
- Dead Space 2
- Dead Space 3
- And for unknown reasons, This War of Mine
In any case, EA is one of the most profitable games publishers worldwide, and its collection of titles is very large. Currently, the service is only available in the US, Canada, United Kingdom and Germany, but it should not take too long before the rest of the countries are included.
If you live in one of the mentioned countries, you can set up a subscription here.
