50 Comments

The EA Access and Origin Access free game libraries expand today with new titles. As announced previously, the Xbox One free game Vault adds NBA Live 16 today, while the PC catalog welcomes eight new titles, including the Mass Effect trilogy and more.

No Caption Provided

New additions to the Origin Access Vault include the following: Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, Trine, Trine 2: Complete Story, Dungeons of Dredmor, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, and Peggle. Unlike Xbox One's EA Access, Origin Access' free game catalog includes games not made or published by EA.

In addition to the free games, other EA/Origin Access subscription benefits include a 10-percent discount on all EA digital content and access to upcoming EA titles five days before they are released publicly.

EA Access is offered for $5/month or $30/year, while Origin Access is only available at the $5 monthly rate.

You can see all of the free EA/Origin Access games in the lists below.

Gamepot! I expect better. This is at least the third article this month where you are simply copying and pasting that Xbox One EA Access list from an out dated source.

You've left off

NHL 16

Battlefield 4 Premium

Hardline Premium

*Premiums have only recently been added and give you all the DLC so they should be updated in your list instead of just listing the base game that doesn't have the DLC.

Ugh, I thought these games were on the "On-the-House" list. You know, the ACTUALLY FREE games list.All that was on that list today was Medal Assault.

This is for their subscription service, not free.

Come on EA let's get some more of those Origin games to Xboxone. I'd love to have both the dead space and mass effect trilogies. It would certainly solidify my decision to renew my subscription

This seems to be working. On the PC platform, no less. I wonder how long before Steam offers "Steam+"?

Either make a Mass Effect remaster bundle or get on making Mass Effect 2 and 3 backwards compatible.

"FREE," Games on EA Access. FREE would imply that you are getting something for free, not paying a subscription for and certainly not something that you don't get to keep, when you are done paying for it.

adverb: free

without cost or payment."ladies were admitted free of charge"

synonyms:without charge, free of charge, for nothing, at no cost, complementary etc.

So you are okay with the double think then, free games that are not free? If they are going to keep saying it then I'm sure people are going to keep pointing it out.

@punksterdaddy: sub- short for "subscription". For someone acting like they are well versed in the English language you clearly misread what he meant.

And seriously stop nitpicking. Every one knows that you need to be a member of the programs in order to receive the games.

@scottyp360: If somebody says to me "Cause we get it, you need a sub." To which I respond with "I don't need a sub either thanks all the same." Then what have I misread there? It is a direct response to what had been said. If I am wrong, then please do point out where? I don't want or need a sub, so there is nothing wrong with my response or what he said, as far as I can tell.

Well if claiming to be well versed in the English language is knowing the definition of "Free," Is free, then yes I suppose I must be... By your low standards. I'm not well versed in the English language and I never misread anything here either.

Have I upset you because you subscribe to EA Access or something, that's it isn't it?

You see, I am not having a go at EA Access, I am having a go at the repeated inappropriate use of a word, unless the definition of FREE has changed in America, then they are NOT free games? Playstation Plus and XBOX Live are perhaps slightly different, seeing as they require a subscription to play online anyway. Nobody really NEEDS this EA Access to play their games online.

That is also not necessarily true that "Every one knows that you need to be a member of the programs in order to receive the games." When a friend of mine on Steam tried to tell me a couple of months back that he saw that EA were giving away FREE games, I had to point out that no it wasn't free but was this new rather loose term of "FREE," so in other words, whoever is responsible for this usage of the word is wrong, I know it, they know it and so do you!

Where is the benefit of false advertising? It maybe gets a few extra clicks yes but in the end it is not accurate to what is being discussed and so why are YOU, also okay with this?

Such sad times we live in, when something is wrong and is clearly wrong, people will defend it as nitpicking and be quite happy in continuing which is at worst a lie or at best a continuing error.

Just Stop Defending It.

@punksterdaddy: "Cause we get it, you need a sub."

This here was misread. He wasn't specifically talking about YOU, punksterdaddy, he meant in general. Perhaps it should have been written this way "cause we get it, a subscription is needed in order to access these games."

In no way is this use of the word "free" deceptive. If people don't understand that a subscribtion is needed to take advantage of this offer, specifically when the article even states you need to have a membership to Origin or Access, then these people are oblivious.

By your logic I suppose we should be mad that Ihop, the international house of pancakes, isn't an actual house nor made out of pancakes. Or that the movie The Neverending Story does indeed have an ending.

You are upset about something that the majority of people are able to comprehend and understand.

@punksterdaddy: Pretty sure he is saying that most people knows that one would need a sub to get the "free" games, not that you would personally need one...

That being said, no they are not free games, but I guess there is value for ones that would use the full benefit. Most things in life aren't truly "free" anyways, but I do make use for the Xbox One's EA Access as it saves me money as I do buy quite a few EA titles per year and it pays for itself. To each their own.

In all fairness EA is not advertising it as Free on Origin. It's Gamespot's fault.

@joesguy: Actually, it is pointless negativity. Why is it so cool to hate on EA now? They're making some pretty good moves here. I don't see much of a reason to hate them.

And yes, every company on the face of the planet is looking for money. Your money, my money, everyone. It's nothing new. So just stop acting like EA is some horrible entity that is only out to make everyone's lives miserable.

@battlestreak: It's anything but pointless. The comment was someone appreciating a faceless corporation that cares nothing about the end user, so long as they've emptied their wallets. Someone pointed this out as a response to this blind adoration. It absolutely had a point.

It's clear that you have no idea of the scope of EA's poor customer service, hence you asked why it's trendy to despise EA. Allow my to educate you on the subject:

1. EA's monopolistic business practices harm other publishing companies. No more so than, say, Valve or Ubisoft, but EA is the biggest, and as such has a greater responsibility to gaming.

2. They've bought and dissolved many prolific development studios. The following well renowned studios have now been destroyed by EA: Westwood, Bioware, Popcap, Activision, Pandemic, Bullfrog, Origin, Maxis... and this list will go on, no doubt.

3. EA is clearly focused on the buy now-pay forever business model with regards to its newest releases. We have single player RPGs with pointlessly shoe-horned multiplayer and micro transactions (Mass Effect, Dragon Age Inquisition) and the aforementioned endless purchase schemes seen in recent Battlefield games as well as the debacle that was Star Wars Battlefront. While selling a game to you piecemeal over the course of a year isn't unique to EA, the franchises they own are littered with this crap.

I could go on, but at this point, it's crystal clear why scrutinizing EA as we do is not "pointless negativity." That's pussy talk. Stop buying their shit and conditions may improve.

@joesguy: I see your points, but I still don't hate EA. I like most of their games, so I'm not going to isolate myself from that just because it's fun to be negative.

And don't go "oh, see, you're buying into their shit and you're stupid". I don't give EA any more credit than they deserve, but I do enjoy their games. Is their something wrong with that? Is their something wrong with liking something you don't?

@battlestreak: You really didn't read anything I wrote, it seems. The reasons I listed for EA being cancerous to the gaming industry are objective and have zero to do with the quality of their titles. If you enjoy them, that's fine, but at least be honest with yourself on this - EA doesn't do anything for you out of good favor and actively harms the medium with their practices.

And, may I ask you a question? What publisher actively does something out of "good favor" for the gaming industry? Other than CD Projekt Red, some indie publishers, and a small handful of others?

@battlestreak: Aside from the ones you've mentioned, which are worthy of note, there are quite a few: Night Dive Studios (restores old games), Devolver Digital (all round great publisher that promotes indie titles), Blizzard (still supports their older titles with patches), Revolution Software (a publisher that actively works with developers to determine how to maximize the potential for a game, rather than poach gamers.)

There are others, of course, but what does this have to do with how consistently shitty EA is?

@joesguy: No, because I still enjoy their games. I played the hell out of Battlefield 4, enjoyed Star Wars Battlefront, am looking forward to Mirror's Edge Catalyst (although I'll be waiting for a cheaper price), I am looking forward to games like Battlefield 1 and the next Battlefront (assuming they included a good story). I enjoy and play EA games. Is there something wrong with that? Or do I have to be like everyone else on the internet and join the hate train?

The three reasons you listed, do hurt,I'll agree with you there. Those are some big downsides to EA. But I'm not going to just sit here, hating them. It does me no good, and they don't give a **** either.

@battlestreak: "enjoyed Star Wars Battlefront" LOL! Sorry, couldn't help myself.

The thing is, it does a world of good to acknowledge serious flaws in a corporation as large as EA. Should they not make money hand over fist selling you games you're paying for long after the "release" date of half the game, they have less incentive to do it. Hating on them is absolutely justified, as is not giving them your business. But hey, if you want to get ripped of over the course of EA's existence, that's not my problem.

@joesguy: People like you disgust me. What? Am I not allowed to enjoy a game like Battlefront? **** off.

I acknowledge that EA has some serious flaws, and they definitely need to improve in some areas, but I still enjoy their games. Playing games is all about having fun, right? More or less? So, why not just buy EA games cheaper, like I do? You don't have to block yourself from games, just because "oh I don't like the company". How would I get ripped off, if I get most of the EA games I play, below $30? I hardly ever buy DLC, and I enjoy the games. Anything wrong with that? Or does everybody have to be miserable like you?

@battlestreak: Oh please, spare your sanctimonious drivel. You can like whatever you wish, just as I'm free to mock you for it. You bought half a game that cost you an additional $50 for the other half. That is worthy of mockery.

"Playing games is all about having fun, right?"

Not to EA it's not, and that's the point. They don't care about anything but your money, and due to the corporate corruption surrounding such a massive enterprise, they get away with abhorrent business practices in this industry. I'm not miserable, though it sounds like you do have something of a axe to grind now that I've highlighted your questionable use of money.

@joesguy: Oh, yeah, sure, you're free to mock me, if you enjoy being an asshole.

"half a game" Haha, no. I'm not necessarily just trying to defend EA, but the game that is released for $60, is not only half a game. The base game, is the game. The DLC or season passes, are nothing more than add-ons. Seriously, what do the DLC and season passes contain? Multiplayer map packs, and weapons? Then don't buy them. I don't buy them.

No, of course it isn't all fun and games to EA. Welcome to every middle to large sized corporation on planet earth. It's all about money for them, but who can blame them? I don't care at all, until they start incorporating backhanded business practices, which they have to an extent. That's no good, but that's not going to stop me from enjoying a game that I would like to play.

Also, how would my use of money, be in any way questionable? It's of no concern to you, first of all, and second, I could see a question arise if I was purchasing EA or Ubisoft or whoever's games for $60, and then paying full price for the season pass, but I'm not. I'm getting these games a couple or few months after release, for around $30 on average. I don't buy any DLC or season passes. How is that questionable?

@battlestreak: Mockery isn't always in the guise of malice, you know.

So the game released with four maps, the rest were a part of the season pass or will be made available later as paid DLC and you think that's not half a game? I think you're pretty susceptible to videogame snake oil if that's okay with you.

"No, of course it isn't all fun and games to EA. Welcome to every middle to large sized corporation on planet earth. It's all about money for them, but who can blame them?"

I can, as I laid out a laundry list of only a handful of publishers that actively care about the delicate covenant between developer and end user. You seem to be of this impression that every studio is EA. Even if they were, why the hell should anyone accept that excuse? EA is toxic to this medium. Time and time again they've willfully destroyed some of the finest development studios the industry has had.

"Also, how would my use of money, be in any way questionable? It's of no concern to you"

So, say, if you were to donate to a chemical weapon research center, that's of no concern to me and isn't questionable? That may be an extreme example, but when one actively cares about an industry that is monopolized by horrendous business practices like this, then you've made your spending habits every gamer's business. Especially since no one ever forced you to disclose that information.

Then you say this curious statement:

"I don't care at all, until they start incorporating backhanded business practices, which they have to an extent."

And I rest my fucking case.

@joesguy: Like I said before, who says that's half a game or not? My God, if you don't think the game is worth it, don't buy it, or wait for a cheaper price, like I do. That's all I really have to say. If you don't like EA's games, then fine. That's your choice and opinion, and I hold no fault to you because I can see where you're coming from. But to go around and grief others and tell me I'm using my money poorly, is just stupid.

@joesguy: May I ask which game had four maps in the base game? Not out of skepticism, but just genuinely wondering.

Comparing a company that uses slave labor, to EA, is grossly overexaggerated and an extreme. My whole point is, that while I could sit around and not play their games, and not give them my money, they wouldn't care. What's the point? Why should I refuse to play and enjoy their games if I want to? It wouldn't make a difference whether I buy them or not.

@battlestreak: Four. Fucking. Maps. You tell me what's half a game or not, because I could use a good laugh. "My God, if you don't think the game is worth it, don't buy it" That's easy - Didn't.

"But to go around and grief others and tell me I'm using my money poorly, is just stupid."

Not quite. Were someone about to buy stocks in a company that uses slave labor, and the person in question is oblivious, not to mention probably against such a thing, I'd tell them they're about to make a poor choice in how they spend their time and money. You can do whatever you want, but the reality is you're feeding a machine that is cancerous to this industry.

And anyway, don't buy the DLC, like I do. It's not a big deal.
