EA announces Origin Access for PC

The previously Xbox exclusive subscription service EA Access is coming to PC and is rebranded “Origin Access.”

Origin Access is a $5 a month/$30 a year subscription service for PC gamers that offers 10% discounts on EA games through the Origin store, 6-10 hour trials of upcoming EA titles ahead of release and access to the “Vault.” The Vault offers subscribers complete access to a substantial number of older PC titles.┬áBecause EA doesn’t offer many of its sports titles on PC, Origin Access does have a few different games compared to Xbox’s EA Access.

Both Unravel and Plants v. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will offer 6-10 free trials in February

Origin Access “Vault” titles

  • Battlefield 3
  • Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe
  • Battlefield: Hardline – Digital Deluxe
  • Dragon Age: Origins – Ultimate Edition
  • Dragon Age 2
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition – Digital Deluxe
  • Dead Space
  • Dead Space 2
  • Dead Space 3
  • Sim City
  • The Sims 3: Starter Pack
  • FIFA 15
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
  • Need for Speed: Rivals
  • This War of Mine

To help plug the new subscription service, EA even made this weird little promo with Bill Nye.

For more details on Origin Access and all it offers PC gamers, EA’s Origin site has all the details.
