Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Now Part of Origin Access, Star Wars Battlefront Joining Soon

In Gaming, News by Anthony Spark0 Comments

Haven’t played Mirror’s Edge Catalyst yet? No problem, because EA has just added the game to the Origin Access Vault, which means that you can now play it for just $5 a month, along with a plethora of other games. In fact, the original Mirror’s Edge was also added to the Vault so you may want to check that one as well and see how it compares to its successor. Most would say that the original is the better game, but Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is a pretty decent title in its own right and definitely a nice addition to the Origin Access program.

In addition to the two Mirror’s Edge games, it looks like EA is planning to expand the Origin Access library even further by the end of the year. The company recently confirmed on Twitter that the next game to join the Vault will be none other than Star Wars Battlefront. There’s no release date just yet, but the game will definitely show up sometime before the end of the year. As I’m sure many of you are already aware by now, a lot of gamers have mixed feelings about Star Wars Battlefront, so I won’t blame you if you don’t find this news particularly exciting. That said, this would also be the perfect opportunity to check out the game if you haven’t already and decide for yourself if all the hate was justified or not.

When we first discussed Origin Access almost one year ago it seemed like an okay service for PC gamers, but nothing to write home about. More recently, however, the service is becoming more and more easier to recommend thanks to its constantly growing library of good games. Aside from the titles discussed above, Origin Access also offers games like Titanfall, Battlefield 4, Torchlight II, Need For Speed Rivals, This War of Mine, and FIFA 16, among others. More importantly, though, the Vault also includes several trilogies, such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Crysis, and Dead Space, all of which are very good series.

Becoming an Origin Access member costs $5 a month and gives full access to all the games in the library, along with some other benefits. Choosing to cancel the subscription at any time will not remove the games from your personal library, however, it will make them inaccessible, just in case you decide to come back later. As for the extra benefits, Origin Access members get 10% off all games purchased from the marketplace and can also play trial versions of some of the biggest games published by EA before they come out. At the moment, the only trial featured is for FIFA 17, but more will likely be added at some point in the future.
