EA Announces Origin Access Premier on PC; Coming Later This Summer

Origin Access Premier will be priced $14.99 per month or $99.99 per year, with users soon able to pre-register at the official Origin Access site. This functions the same as Xbox's Game Pass version that adds all first-party exclusives to the Game Pass for players to return to so long as they keep their subscription intact.

While Electronic Arts' E3 2018 premise lays with the games themselves, a surprise announcement also came from its EA Play press conference.

Similar to the Origin Access program on PC, which gives subscribers the option to play through pre-release trials of upcoming games and access to the Vault, with over 100 full games available to play through, the Origin Access Premier program will have "all" of the company's new PC games. In Origin Access Premier, this does not apply. For the first time in a subscription, you're getting new games like "Madden NFL 19, ' "FIFA 19, ' 'Battlefield V" and 'Anthem, ' and full access to more than 100 games from EA and other publishers with a single membership". For $4.99 a month - or $29.99 per year - it includes more than a hundred PC games, though they're not typically the very newest titles. He suggested that if the Switch's install base grows big enough, EA would more seriously consider bringing the game there. Along with a 10% discount on Origin purchases. It also features an attempt to broaden their reach by announcing a subscription platform for other studios and publishers that may not want to foot the bill for maintaining a subscription service like this. We have included a trailer for the game for you to check out.
