More than one year has passed since we first spoke about Origin Access. Even though it’s probably still not as popular as EA would like it to be, there’s no denying that the service grew tremendously since its inception. At launch, the service only offered 15 games and was perhaps a bit hard to recommend. Now, however, the Origin Access Vault contains more than 60 titles. all of which can be played for free as long as you have an active subscription. Even better, EA is currently offering a free 7-day trial, so you can check out the service for yourself and see what all the fuss is about.
If you’re interested in the offer simply head over to the official website and follow the instructions to get started. The gist here is that you actually have to first sign up for either a monthly or yearly plan, which are priced at $5 and $30, respectively. Once you pick your preferred plan, you can start playing anything and everything found on Origin Access for free as part of the trial. The service only starts charging you after your free week has ended, so don’t worry about paying anything upfront. The subscription can be canceled at any time, including right before the trial has ended. Doing so will allow you to try out Origin Access for free and not be charged for a full month or year afterward. You will need to sign up before March 7 to benefit from this offer, though, so hurry up.
Assuming you want to give the service a try, you can look forward to more than 60 games, including both obscure indies and AAA titles. A few of the highlights come in the form of Star Wars Battlefront, Unravel, Titanfall, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Battlefield 4, Torchlight 2, and The Banner Saga, to name just a few. In addition, the Origin Access Vault also features a number of highly acclaimed trilogies, such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Crysis, and Dead Space.
Aside from full access to its constantly expanding library, subscribers can also look forward to 10% off all Origin purchases. In addition, Origin Access members can also try out some of the newest EA titles for free before committing to a purchase. Currently, subscribers can play Battlefield 1 for free for up to 10 hours and continue where they left off if they decide to buy the game further down the road. Even more interesting, however, EA has announced that Origin Access members will be also able to play Mass Effect Andromeda five days before the game officially launches on March 21st.
In other news, Mass Effect 2 is still free as part of EA’s “On the House” program so make sure to grab it if you haven’t already.
