Electronic Arts debuts PC game streaming service at E3 2018

Origin Access Premier arrives on PC this summer.

EA has announced a new streaming subscription service for its games.

EA shared very few details about Origin Access Premier, but it will bring all-new PC games to players. This'll include its biggest releases, like Battlefield 5, the newly announced Madden 19 on PC and BioWare's Anthem.

Being a member also means games from other publishers such as Batman: Arkham Asylum, INSIDE, The Witness, and more are playable.

Amazon Prime Video to stream live Premier League matches and highlights
The only problem is that most of those companies failed to take the Premier League's bait. Fortunately Amazon Prime is considerably cheaper than both BT's or Sky's Sports packages.


That's a business model we've seen Microsoft have success with when it comes to its Xbox Game Pass service, and EA wants to leverage its roster of properties to do something similar.

Anthem, a social, connected Action-RPG with cooperative multiplayer at its heart. For the first time in a subscription, you're getting new games like Madden NFL 19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V and Anthem, and full access to more than 100 games from EA and other publishers with a single membership. The premium service will also include access to the full Origin Vault of previously-released titles for subscribers, as with the base Origin Access service.

For that, EA is charging $14.99 per month for EA Origin Access Premier. Along with a 10% discount on Origin purchases. New subscribers who aren't now a member of an Origin Access plan will be able to get a seven day trial.
