Gamasutra is reporting that EA's subscription service, Origin Access, has gotten a new Premier tier that will cost you $100 a year, or $15 a month. While it seems steep at first, in addition to all the titles on, and being added to the Access list, you also get early, full access to new releases, such as Anthem and Battlefield 5.

Gotta say, this is a pretty good deal. I had Origin Access for a while, and while I was impressed with the titles on the list for "free," I didn't have too many I actually felt like playing that I hadn't already purchased before Access was a thing. Thanks to @cageymary for the story.

In the case of EA’s next four big releases (Madden NFL 19, FIFA 19, Battlefield 5, and Anthem), Origin Access Premier subscribers will be able to download and play the games on PC about 8 days before each of their full releases.
