Origin Access first launched back in 2016, as a PC version of the original EA Access subscription scheme for Xbox One. That has been a constant complaint by gamers, in fact, and something Electronic Arts has made a decision to address today.

Origin Access Premier arrives on PC this summer. It'll bring release and pre-release access to its new games, and not just its archive of games. The news comes alongside the reveal of Origin Access Premier, which will give access to even more games in the EA online library.

The basic Origin Access provides gamers with a trove of over a hundred past games from EA and other publishers.

According to EA, this is a "new tier" of its PC gaming membership where subscribers can play full games such as Battlefield 5, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Madden NFL 19, and Anthem before launch. Battlefield V follows on October 11, while the new social Action-RPG Anthem isn't expected until February 15, 2019. Like the regular Origin membership, users can take 10% on other Origin digital purchases.

EA shared few details on the service and its capabilities, though hopes to distribute all "new PC games" through the service going forward.

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