Summary (IA Generated)

EA will now call both EA Access and Origin Access’s Basic tier by the name EA Play.

The service formerly known as Origin Access Premier will now be EA Play Pro.

99 for a Play Pro subscription.

It’s worth noting this rebrand is coming shortly before the subscription service is due to arrive on Steam.

In fact, the phasing out of the “Origin” part of the name, combined with EA moving both its service and several of its previously-exclusive games to Steam, makes me worry for the fate of EA’s Origin PC client.

While EA‘s subscription service has never been as well-publicized as Xbox Game Pass, it operates in much the same way.

You pay a subscription fee in exchange for access to a selection of games.

A Play Pro/Premier subscription also gives you full access to new EA games — in fact, this was announced at the same time Microsoft revealed Xbox Game Pass subscribers would also get new games.

EA Play the subscription service will launch on August 18.
