For that, EA is charging $14.99 per month for EA Origin Access Premier.

It all sounds very similar to Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass, which offers access to many of that consoles' titles for $9.99/month.

Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson took the stage at EA Play 2018 to announce Origin Access Premier. Today at EA Play 2018, Electronic Arts executive vice president in charge of Worldwide Studios, Patrick Soderlund, announced the arrival of Origin Access Premiere. It sounds like a great deal if you're planning on picking these titles up anyway, and a viable option for users to save a little money on all the new games coming their way soon.

The standard edition of Madden 19 is set be released on August 10, but those who pre-order the Hall-of-Fame edition with Owens on the cover will be able to get the game early on August 7. For the first time in a subscription, you're getting new games like "Madden NFL 19, ' "FIFA 19, ' 'Battlefield V" and 'Anthem, ' and full access to more than 100 games from EA and other publishers with a single membership".

Being a member also means games from other publishers such as Batman: Arkham Asylum, INSIDE, The Witness, and more are playable. It also comes with perks for trying and buying new games. Along with a 10% discount on Origin purchases.

For those who have already been participating in EA's Origin program, you'll know that Origin Access contains a huge backlog of games in itself.
