EA Announces EA Access Coming To Steam, But It Still Requires Origin

Electronic Arts is bringing its subscription service known as EA Access from Origin, PS4, and Xbox One to Steam sometime “soon.” In other words, the company that hosts waifu witch hunts and the infamous taste police will allow EA to bolster Origin in its new sneaky ploy.

If you don’t know, although I don’t promote this, it’s better to buy an EA game on Origin instead of Steam since you need to use Origin no matter what to run any EA game on Valve’s client.

Moreover, the average EA game on Steam incorporates 3rd-party DRM and calls for EA online activation, Origin client software installation, and background use when playing the publisher’s games.

With that said, folks looking to snag a month or year’s worth of EA Access to buy EA games on Steam, know that you’ll still need Origin to launch and play said titles.

Moreover, if you are thinking, “Well, what does EA Access have to offer? Is it any good?” The answer to that question sits on the subscription’s newly posted announcement page describing what EA Access has in store:

  • Reward your dedication: Unlock exclusive rewards and member-only content.
  • Try something new: Play select new-release EA games for up to 10 hours.
  • There’s always more to play: Get instant access to a collection of EA’s best-loved games.
  • Get more for less: Save 10% on EA digital purchases from full games to DLC.

In other words, folks looking to sign up must pay $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year to gain access to “a ton of awesome games,” receive exclusive early access to trials, and gain a 10% off discount on EA digital purchases.

Lastly, EA is “bringing” as many of its games over to Steam, which happens to include Mirror’s Edge and Star Wars: Battlefront 2 to upcoming titles like FIFA 21 and Star Wars: Squadrons to help bolster EA Access and Origin.
