Now Playing: The History Of E3

During EA's E3 2018 press conference, the publisher revealed Origin Access Premier, a new tier within the Origin Access subscription service. Among other things, it will give access to even more games in the EA online library. Origin Access Premier is slated to launch sometime this summer.

EA shared few details about Origin Access Premier, but the membership will give full access to EA's PC games. Among those specifically singled out during the press conference were FIFA 19, BioWare's Anthem, and Madden NFL 19, which will mark the series' return to PC for the first time in more than a decade. Additionally, a Premier membership grants unlimited access to The Sims 4.

A Premier membership unlocks all the benefits of Origin Access Basic, the subscription service that gives players unlimited access to more than 95 PC games as long as they have an active membership. EA didn't share a release date for Origin Access Premier, but the publisher did announce that fans will be able to sign up for a free trial of Origin Access Basic now through June 17.

Origin Access Premier will cost $15 US per month or $100 per year. The publisher also announced a separate streaming service but shared no additional details.

EA shared a lot of other announcements during its EA Play event, including a battle royale mode for the upcoming Battlefield V. You can follow along with all the news from the conference in our liveblog and on GameSpot's E3 2018 hub.

The idea of a streaming service is a wonderful one, but which planet has the fast data-cap-free ISPs that this would require to work well? It's not this planet. I think the only "streaming" I'm going to be able to do is over this 6 foot hdmi cord ;).

Take your "subscription" and "streaming" bull****, and shove it up your a**, EA.

@BassMan: 15$ A month and 99$ a Year. Gamespot tends to be slow on gaming news.

Looks like EA is really pushing the subscription thing. Wonder if we can add the term “subscription” to the plethora of other terms gamers are weary about now like “loot boxes, micro-transactions, season passes, etc…).
