But it's not only about new titles, as Origin Access Premier will also give users access to the Origin Vault, which comprises more than 100 games from Electronic Arts themselves and third-party developers.

During the EA Play event this year Electronic Arts revealed Origin Access Premier, a subscription service similar to that of the Xbox Game Pass, for PC games.

The service will launch this summer for $14.99 per month, or $99.99 a year.

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.

Anthem - February 15, 2019 for Origin Access Premier members, February 22 for everyone else. Mainly the technology that allows them to stream their games, which led mainly to believe that EA was working on their own cloud-based gaming. You can opt for vanilla Origin Access as well for $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. The current Origin Access system will run concurrently, it was today confirmed.

So that's EA's Origin Access Premier. You can also get a seven-day free trial for Origin Access from now until June 17.

Subscriptions are quite important to EA and have helped rake in billions in revenue as part of its Live Services segment.

Aside from game updates, EA also announced its new all-in-one subscription service.

10 percent discount in the Origin Store on full games, pre-orders, expansions, Federation Internationale de Football Association points, and more.

That's right, no more limited-time trials. As a Premium subscriber, you are able to access all of the benefits of the basic Origin package. "Plus, dive into over 100 PC titles whenever you want". This means unlimited playtime on the full versions of the games starting five days before the launch.
