Electronic Arts debuts PC game streaming service at E3 2018

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. It will launch later in Summer 2018, though a free trial will arrive this weekend. In Origin Access Premier, this does not apply.

Fans of EA's games have a new way to enjoy the whole library. This shares similar offerings to Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass, which provides access to over 100 titles and all future first-party releases on Xbox One. Origin Access Premier unlocks unprecedented levels of choice and value for players who love PC games.

The other major feature unique to Access Premier is being able to stream games instead of needing to download them.

From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Set To Come Out 2019

Expedition 56-57 launched to ISS with three astronauts
They joined Expedition 56 Commander Drew Feustel and Flight Engineers Ricky Arnold of NASA and Oleg Artemyev of Roscosmos aboard the orbiting laboratory.

According to EA, this is a "new tier" of its PC gaming membership where subscribers can play full games such as Battlefield 5, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Madden NFL 19, and Anthem before launch. We won't be surprised however, to see it out the same time as Madden NFL 19 which is debuting on August 10, if not earlier.

So, how does EA Origin Access Premier (and yes, it really is that clunkily-worded, and yes, the lack of an "E" at the end of "premier" is definitely making my eye twitch a little) differ from the base version? Play the full game starting five days before launch without purchasing it separately, until you cancel your Premier membership.
