EA Origin Access offers 15 older full Windows PC games for $4.99 a month

Electronic Arts is launching the PC version of EA Access, which is currently available for Xbox One owners. It's called EA Origin Access and it gives Windows PC gamers a chance to play a bunch of older titles for the price of $4.99 a month.

EA Origin Access currently has 15 games in its Vault for subscribers:

  • Battlefield 3
  • Battlefield 4
  • Battlefield Hardline
  • Dragon Age 2
  • Dragon Age Origins
  • Dragon Age Inquisition
  • SimCity
  • Need for Speed Rivals
  • FIFA 15
  • Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare
  • Dead Space
  • Dead Space 2
  • Dead Space 3
  • The Sims 3
  • This War of Mine

The last game on the list, This War of Mine, is not one that EA developed or published, which shows that EA Origin Access will include games that come from third-parties. EA says it will continue to add new games to the Vault.

In addition, subscribers will be able to get 10% discounts on full game purchases via the Origin service. Finally it will offer free trials of upcoming EA games, with the first being Unravel on Feb. 4. Unlike EA Access for the Xbox One, which also offers a 12-month subscription plan for $29.99, EA Origin Access is only available for the $4.99 a month plan.

  • Wish they consolidated these services to cover both thr XO and PC :(
  • Issue is one uses the Xbox One Store, one uses EA's own store. That and EA wants all your moneyz.
  • They should use the windows store :P
  • Except you are still using a origin id so it could work with a little co-operation with ea & MS
  • Yeah, I have it on the x1 and am not going to pay again for the PC version.
  • For $30/year I might pay a second time. For $50/year total for the two I almost certainly would. For $5/month ($60 per year) I don't expect to.
  • The Dead Spaces on their Xbox One subscription would be amazing
  • Sony missing the boat with their " EA access holds No value" :D
  • Agree agree agree. Every XO owners should buy live and access. If you buy any one of EA sports a year this is a better alternative.
  • Except you don't get FIFA 16... You get 15.
  • FIFA 16 will be available in a few months.
  • Any new sport game will be available 6-7 months after original release. That's why you already can download Fifa 14 or Fifa 15, in may probably Fifa 16.  I was buying yearly Fifa, but now I stopped and I prefer to pay only $30 a year for Fifa and some other games.
  • I wish they would give the season pass free with hardline so people would play again. The pc servers are empty.
  • PC BF4 is full. It's simply a much better game of the same exact system.
  • Say what you want, I think this is a step in the right direction.
  • You have to pay extra for DLC for a game you don't own.
  • >Requires Origin
    Lmao no.
  • What did you expect this would require? Uplay?
  • ugh. It's been what 6-7 years now. There is nothing wrong with Origin. Same as Uplay, rockstar, steam, GOG....
  • GOG is slow as hell.
  • GOG downloads full speed on my 50 Mbps connection... might be your internet...
  • Rockstar is horrid. Slow as heck. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • so where did you want it? Steam? why? you sound like those ignorant people complaining about Star Wars Battlefront not available on Steam and saying they wouldn't play it because of that. which is really dumb, like if steam added something amazing to the PC gaming. I like using Origin, and I am glad I don't have to deal with Steam.
  • Boohoo I don't like Software that you like. Get over it
  • You don't like Origin? What is there to no like? Do you still think it's the same Origin from all those years ago? Get with the times, Origin is just as good as steam, in some ways it's better such as moneyback guarentees although Steam Refund is similar it was only added because of Origin.
  • I wish you didn't need any software, just your PC like the old days. Theres really no reason for these companies to lock you into there service software other than more potential money for them.
  • Buy from GoG, nothing on there requires any software, other than the game itself and sometimes an emulator of some sorts for old games. There is a reason though, it facilitates their DRM as well as ensures they don't have to pay extra fees for distribution. I don't particularly love it, but companies are in business to make money.
  • ^^ What he said. I own games from GoG, Steam, and Origin. GoG is always my first choice when I have an option. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Ditto.
  • Man Dead Space 1 scared the shht outta me, even now after all these years, gives me the night terrors.
  • It's really creepy especially because it's older with worse graphics. I feel like older games are scarier because it's harder to know exactly what the monster looks like so it leaves more to your imagination.
  • Why is Battlefield 3 available for the Pc but not ea access subscribers on Xbox One?
  • Didn't get released on Xbox One.
  • EA Access is such an awesome deal. Sony are idiots for saying it was a rubbish idea.
  • Sony had their reasons, some arguably valid. I just think the of fear came because of how popular PS+ is (arguably again) over XBox live, and besides who would encourage competition - future PS Now subs? I prefer PS over XBox, and spent more with PS and don't have enough time play what I've bought... But I play the few Xbox exclusive titles, but get every one that comes out on PC as well only on PC (Titanfall 2?). Point is, EA access to me should've started on PC to compete with console, but X1 & PS4 release change that....Sony has PS Now, but EA access has X1 and soon PC in my mind
  • Its a shame Ive already bought rivals
  • Same here....but alas, I just tried dragon age inquisition trial, and was about to buy it, so now I can save and play :-)
  • How could you play the full version of the games with a monthly subscription? I mean a pc game needs full installation of the game setup file.... One time registration and then bang on.... Play it for whole life.... How this is connected to a monthly subscription plan?
  • Because the games won't launch if your account isn't active. Just like with EA Access on consoles.
  • You download the full game like normal and if you're still paying for ea access, the game will launch.
