The first day of E3 and the Electronic Arts E3 conference is behind us, and at the conference there was a lot of news surrounding the highly anticipated Bioware IP game, Anthem. At E3, many details such as the Anthem release date, a gameplay video, the javelin classes, pre-order bonuses, and customizations, to name only a few, have been revealed. Recently, it has also been revealed that the new Electronic Arts subscription service, called, Origin Access Premier, will allow subscribers to get an entire week of early access to Anthem.
As was confirmed at E3, Anthem will release on February 22nd, 2019, but Origin Access Premier members can be the first to play the full game with unlimited access on PC starting February 15th already. Additionally, EA Access and Origin Access Basic members can enjoy up to 10 hours of play time as part of the Play First Trial of Anthem.
Origin Access Premier was announced as part of Electronic Arts’s panel, and will give players early access to new releases, as well as access to the EA Vault, which contains over 100 Electronic Arts games. Pricing for Origin Access Premier is $14.99 per month, or $99.99 for a full year. This new service that Electronic Arts introduced at E3 seems to be a similar Xbox Games Pass for Xbox owners, as it allows players to access a variety of games that are changed every now and then for a subscription fee. Origin Access Premier will also give 10% discount to subscribers on full games in the Origin Store.
Anthem is a social, connected action-RPG with cooperative multiplayer at its heart, and was certainly one of the fan-favorites and most talked about games at Electronic Arts’s E3 conference this year. Fans that will be playing Anthem on early PC next year that can’t wait to get their hands on this game will certainly be happy to be able to do so a week before the release date.
Origin Access Premiere is scheduled to launch Summer 2018.
