EA Adds Two New PC Games to Origin Access, Eight More Coming Soon

If you're an EA Origin Access subscriber, you can look forward to checking out lots of new titles on the service this year.

EA is expanding the games offered on their Origin Access program. If you aren't familiar with it, Origin Access is a subscription service that runs users $4.99 a month. For that price, you can access a number of PC games in their entirety, including the Mass Effect series, the Dead Space series, and more.

The service currently offers a selection of 29 titles, but then EA added last year's Need for Speed reboot and indie platform title Unraveled. The company also announced that eight more games are headed to the service this summer. That list includes all of the following:

  • Crysis, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2
  • Jade Empire
  • Sim City 2000
  • Mini Metro

Of that list, only Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has a firm release date, as it will be coming August 30. Details on the other release dates will be shared through EA's social channels in the coming weeks.

Once all these games are added, Origin Access will offer subscribers 37 titles for their monthly fee. It's not a bad deal if you've never played any (or most) of those games and want to burn through them with having to buy them all.

thats the problem for me as well. most of them i have or do not want. i have done it to get early access to catalyst and i was happy about it. since i got it a bit cheaper as well. but that was pretty much it for me since no other title i was very interest in. i have canceled it a few weeks later but it was still valid till the end of june. i have tried only 2 titles out i thought may be interesting and thats about it.

Meanwhile, I got Jade Empire on GoG for ca 3 EUR. Permanently, no DRM.

Having looked through the games currently offered - not a bad deal, though I own all the games I'm interested in. But then EA still rubs me the wrong way so much that I haven't bought a single EA game (sans Jade Empire) since DA Inquisition.
