For the unaware ones, Electronic Arts offers two gaming subscription services, namely, EA Access and Origin Access. They both are very similar to each other, they cost the same, give similar perks and you get more or less the same benefits. Except, both are made for different platforms, Origin Access is for PC and EA Access is for the consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One).
Electronic Arts is running a promotional offer for its gaming subscription services. Both EA Access and Origin Access are currently available for just Rs.79, but you have to take up this offer by June 29, 2020.
Now, let’s talk about what is so special about the Origin Access and EA Access. Firstly, let’s go over Origin Access, as mentioned above, it is the gaming subscription service by EA for PC. Now one thing to note is that there are 2 different types of Origin Access subscriptions, one is the Basic and another is the Premiere. You can choose to pay monthly or annually for this subscription.
Once subscribed, you get several interesting perks. The best perk, in our opinion, is the access to the Origin Access Vault. The Vault is an ever-evolving collection of games on Origin, right now it has over 200 games. There are Origin Access Basic Games available in the Access Basic Vault. These include games such as Anthem, Battlefield V, Need for Speed 2019, etc. Now, if you have Origin Access Premiere then the Vault will have the recent releases. Some of the Premier exclusive games are Darksiders III, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Command & Conquer Remastered Collection. Sadly though, the Origin Access Premiere is not having any promotion.
The other perks of Origin Access include a 10% off on Origin Store purchases and a 10 hour early trial for the upcoming games. The Premier version offers full access for the upcoming games, instead of a trial.
Now, talking of EA Access, as stated before it’s very similar to Origin Access, but for consoles. So, yes all of the aforementioned perks apply for EA Access too. The difference is that EA Access Vault only contains games made by EA, whereas Origin Access contains games that were not made by EA as well.
For a mere Rs.79, Origin Access Basic or the EA Access is a great choice for gamers. It provides access to lots of games and provides many perks as well. Definitely worth getting at this price.
