Publisher Electronic Arts is launching its own PC video game subscription service called Origin Access Premier, it announced Saturday during its E3 2018 press conference.

EA's new Origin Access Premiere subscription will give instant access to the publishers newest games, similar to Microsoft's popular Game Pass service.

EA has quite the lineup coming, in terms of new blockbuster games: Battlefield V, Anthem, FIFA 19, and plenty more are around the corner, to name a few. It will launch later in Summer 2018, though a free trial will arrive this weekend. They will also get access to over 100 older games, like "Need For Speed Payback", Mad Max", and the "Batman: "Arkham" series, along with a 10% discount on Origin purchases. There is also the option of paying a one-off annual fee of US$99.99 (or just a little less than the price of two new titles).

While EA may not have the console platform, it certainly has the games, and this new initiative should help pull kick off the company's bigger focus on cloud-based streaming and more in-depth subscription services.

Subscribers can play over 100 PC titles whenever they like as long as a Premier member is maintained. Comparatively, a standard Origin Access membership is Rs. 315 a month and Rs. 1,990 per year. Play the full game starting five days before launch without purchasing it separately, until you cancel your Premier membership.
