A Parent’s Guide to EA Origins Access

It seems like everyone is starting their own premium gaming service these days. It can be tough for parents to be able to tell the difference between Xbox Live, PlayStation Plus, and all the others. We can’t let that stand here at EFG so we wrote up a big ol’ guide for all of the premium services so our readers can tell them all apart and understand the costs and benefits of each one.

Take a look below for our guide to Origins Access!

The Pitch

Origins Access is a PC subscription service run by Electronic Arts that gives subscribers early access to EA games, discounts on digital purchases, and access to the “Origins Vault.”

How Does it Work?

Subscribers gain three benefits from their Origins Access membership.

  • Early Access to EA games – This usually amounts to a 3-4 day early access period where you can play the game for free prior to its launch date. Your game progress carries over to the full version if you choose to purchase the game after it comes out.
  • Discounts – Subscribers get a 10% discount (at least) on the digital purchase of games on Origin (An EA PC gaming platform that is similar to Steam). Games purchases using the discount remain yours without restriction after your subscription lapses.
  • Origins Vault – Subscribers get access to the Origins Vault. This is a list of older PC titles that is regularly updated. Most EA titles end up on the services 6-9 months after release. As of right now EA has stated that they don’t intend to remove older games from the Vault, but the terms of service do indicate that they reserve the right to do so.

How Much Does it Cost?

You can pay for your Origins Access subscription monthly for $4.99 or Annually for $29.99.

EA Access vs Origins Access

A lot of people get confused by these two services considering they have similar names and are both operated by Electronic Arts.

Origins Access is a PC gaming service. All of the benefits are for PC games only.

On the other hand, EA Access is a console service. In fact, it is limited to the Xbox One. All the benefits of THAT service are limited to subscribers on that console.

Advice

Origins Access is a valuable service for people who regularly play Electronic Arts games on their PC. It’s appeal is pretty limited beyond that though. It also requires that the games be downloaded using the EA Origins platform.

Other Guides

There are a ton of other premium video game services out there so we wrote guides for all of them.  Take a look below:

Advice

EA Access is a great value for Xbox One owners who play a lot of EA games every year. Hardcore Madden or FIFA fans might think the extra 3-4 days of early access to their favorite game might be worth the price of admission all by itself.

It isn’t a streaming service though. This means that any games that you choose to download will need to be downloaded in full to your Xbox One hard drive. If you are planning to make full use of the service it may be a good idea to purchase an external hard drive.
