Do you trust EA with your money? Want to do so on a regular basis? Then you are set up and primed for the company’s new premium Origin Access subscription service.
This service, which is now live, adds a $15/month “premier” subscription tier on top of its previous $5/month basic service. The service promises a five-day head start access for titles, extra currency for games, and all of the access to current and upcoming games that are covered under the basic tier.
You’ll get some new titles with the service too, including The Sims 4 and Star Wars: Battlefront II. Origin Access is also going to be handling BioWare’s Anthem, giving players a head start date of February 15th, 2019.
What wasn’t sent out in EA’s press release, however, was the fact that the company has quietly discontinued its free “on the house” game giveaways that it used to hold on a regular basis.
