The EA subscription service that brings new games, discounts, trials will be available via Steam.
The news matches with the release of a bunch of new EA-published games on the EA Access, although some of its massive titles – Apex Legends, Battlefield V, FIFA 20 – are still Origin-only on PC. Here are the latest details.
EA Access via Steam: Available Game Titles
EA’s subscription service, EA Access, will be available via Steam. Notably, the service will still be called EA Access, copying the naming trend utilized for the PS5 and Xbox one variants. On PC, the service is dubbed Origin Access, which runs via the EA-run Origin store.
Origin Access has changed since its initial release to provide two variants: Basic and Premier. Basic runs similar to EA Access on consoles, bringing 10-hour trials to new games, discounts on Origin purchases, and unlimited access to a variety of games in the Vault. Premier, on the other hand, offers full access to the latest game titles.
News about EA Access’ release on Steam first appeared by way of a poster on the store website for the most recent released EA games on the store. The image indicates that EA Access on Steam will be similar to Origin Access Basic. The Premier variant would likely need that all EA games launch right away on Steam.
The publisher didn’t choose to do such a thing with many of its launches since the arrival of Origin, although there are a few exceptions – 2019 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order arrived on Steam.
EA has launched a bunch of new games on Steam today, including:
- Unravel 2;
