EA’s $5 subscription service for PC games
Announced today, Electronic Arts’ new subscription plan ‘Origin Access’ allows users to play a “growing collection of great PC games” for just $4.99 per month. Users will also save 10% on Origin purchases.
Of course, the main prize of the subscription service is in access to what EA is calling, ‘The Vault.’ Inside this digital crypt you’ll find more than a dozen titles that are included with your Origin Access account.
As of today, there are 15 titles, with more planned in the near future. Inside, you’ll find: ‘Battlefield 4,’ ‘FIFA 15,’ ‘The Sims 3,’ ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ and others.
Aside from the games and discounts, one of the nicer features of ‘The Vault’ is that it won’t be limited to EA-published games. More third-party titles are planned, but for now, 11 bit Studios’ ‘This War of Mine’ is available at launch.
Currently, Origin Access is for Windows users only, sorry Apple.
