EA Access on Steam Will Lack Premiere Option

Basic Access.

Electronic Arts, the developer and publisher of games such as Anthem, Titanfall 2, and the Battlefield series, has fully unveiled their subscription service EA Access that will be coming soon to Steam, who are one of their competitors in the online game store space.

Based on the recently released Steam page, those who subscribe to EA Access will receive rewards for their dedication, different ways to play, the ability to try new games because of their subscription, and a 10% discount on EA digital purchases, which range from full games to DLC.

The games that are included (or at least included on the Steam page) are games such asTitanfall 2, NFS Heat Deluxe Edition, Star Wars Battlefront II Celebration Edition, Battlefield V, The Sims 4, the Dragon Ageseries, the Dead Spaceseries, and more. Interestingly, Anthem is not included on this page, despite being a very high-profile recent EA release, albeit one that is essentially being rebooted.

Perhaps even more interestingly EA Access Premier is not included on the Steam page, which means that it's seemingly exclusive to EA's Origin storefront. EA Origin Access Premier costs $19.99 per month compared to the 'Basic' variant, and includes full access to upcoming games (as opposed to 10-hour trials), access to the 'Premier Vault' which has more games then the Basic version, and extra content that's included with new EA games, which means microtransactions and expansion packs are included with your Premier subscription.

Basically, it seems that EA is treating the Steam release of EA Access just like how they treated the console releases of EA Access, where only EA games are included in the subscription. Fair enough, I guess, but it does mean you may want to consider buying the subscription on Origin instead where you will get a larger number of games, and through which your EA games will launch anyways.

What do you think of this news? Do you think it makes sense for EA to limit access (heh) to EA Access Premier? Let us know in the comments!
