Everyone loves getting cheap games. EA Access/Origin Access is the way to go for getting those cheap games!
Both EA Access and Origin Access is a subscription based service, where you can:
- Play up coming EA titles on Xbox One/PC before they are launched. Normally a couple days prior for an average of 10 hours. These are also the full games you get to play.
- Save 10% on digital purchases of EA titles.
- Receive a gaming “Vault”. These are your full titles that you can play whenever you like, for however long you want to. As long as you are still a member, these are your games. EA promises to never get rid of any game or edition of said game inside of the Vault ever.
Now, EA Access(Xbox One) is $5 a month, or $30 for a year membership. On the EA Origin(PC) side…there is no year subscription, just the $5 a month. You can cancel your subscription at any time you’d like to without penalty, causing you to lose all of your Vault games.
There are currently 22 games in the Vault for EA Access, 28 games for Origin Access…and two new games being added to both services next week!-Need for Speed and Unravel
Within the titles inside of the Vault, you receive the “Premium” edition of these titles as well for all the DLC to go along. Some examples of this: Battlefield 4 Premium Edition, Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition, Dragon Age Inquisition Digital Deluxe Edition, and more!
Most of the games on Xbox One seem to be sports games since most of EA’s titles are of that genre, but I do see more backwards compatible games coming our way; the Dead Space series, Mass Effect series, etc. On the PC platform, expect PC exclusive titles such as Sim City, Torchlight 2, Trine 2, and more.
EA has already updated us with it’s plan for the coming months:
- Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 being added to the Vault August 30th!
- Early trial dates for FIFA 17, NHL 17, Madden 17…..and the best of all….BATTLEFIELD 1!!!!!!! Here’s the thing, EA Access/Origin Access members are allowed to play Battlefield 1 a whole 8 days before the actual release! For $5 for the month, I think everyone should take up this offer, especially with the amount of praise the Alpha of the game is currently getting.
Below I will leave the links for you to go check out the different games currently in the Vault and learn more about this amazing subscription service for Xbox One and PC. Playstation 4 users still do not have this service, but hopefully they do receive it at some point.
