The return of Electronic Arts or EA is a sign that games like Battlefield and several other games will enter Steam after being abandoned for a long time due to Origin. After the inaugural announcement of game subscription services coming to Steam, Electronic Arts has now also rebranded EA Access and Origin Access into EA Play with the appendix “Bringing you to the core of the experience.”
Then why? EA explained this rebranding as an important step to ensure EA Play Member is the best place to play. Regarding this rebranding, there are no price changes for customers, and there are also no significant changes for gamers who need this subscription service.
EA hopes that this change will make it easier for people to buy these games by combining EA Access and Origin Access. EA Access and Origin Access Basic will become EA Play, and Origin Access Premier will become EA Play Pro.
Besides providing more than 100 Electronic Arts games to download and play, subscribers also get a free trial for 5 days with the latest games just before release. They also added a 10% discount for all games they buy from EA, including the full game, DLC, and expansion.
As you know, last June, EA Play was in the E3 event as EA Play Live, and this name will continue to exist as a subscription service.
This brand change will take effect from 18 August. This service will later be available via Steam. It’s also available for PC via Origin, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. EA Access currently costs around $ 4.99 for a month and $ 29.99 for Origin Access choosing the same prices as Origin Access Premier $ 19.99 and $ 129.99 per year.
Using this service, you can enjoy almost all EA games that are released with some pretty attractive prizes and discounts.
