The EA Play subscription service (which replaces EA Access and Origin Access) will arrive on Steam at the end of the month. This will be the fourth platform to receive the service of Electronic Arts, which has already been launched for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the online store Origin (from EA itself) on PC.
Although the subscription page is already available on the platform, the price has not yet been revealed. On consoles, EA Access costs R $ 19.90 per month, or R $ 109.90 per year. In the United States, the base price is $ 4.99 per month or $ 29.99 per year, while the premium option – which includes early access to all new EA titles – $ 14.99 per month, or US $ 99.99 annually.
EA Play gives subscribers the ability to freely play some of the publisher’s biggest titles, including “The Sims 4”, “NFS Heat”, “Star Wars Battlefront 2”, “Battlefield” and “Titanfall 2” at the same time offers other benefits such as early access to new releases and discounts on selected EA games.
EA announced the service’s launch on Steam in October of last year. However, in June, the company stated that the subscription service would not reach the online store in the first half as planned. The reason for the postponement has not been explained, but the Covid-19 pandemic is thought to have influenced it.
The wait, however, was short. With the launch of the service on August 31st on the platform of its rivals from Valve, EA consolidates its expansion strategy. Previously, almost all of the company’s games were available exclusively on its own platform, Origin. However, over the years, the company has expanded to other digital retailers, launching EA Access for Xbox One in 2014 and for PlayStation 4 in July 2019.
