This is an upgrade to the previous Origin Access subscription, which allowed subscribers to access the Vault of EA’s titles. This upgrade allows players to access newly released games and upcoming games, including Anthem, Battlefield V, and FIFA 19. One of the big ticket games coming to Origin Access Premier is The Sims 4, which will also include the Digital Deluxe, Dine Out, and Kids Room packs. In the press release, they announced that the service will be $14.99 per month, or $99.99 per year.

If you are not familiar with the Origin Access program, it allows players to access over 100 games from the Origin Vault. Premier members will be able to access games as soon as a week prior to their release.
