Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson took the stage at EA Play 2018 to announce Origin Access Premier.

EA just announced EA Origin Access Premier, a new version of its Origin Access subscription service that's launching this summer.

"For the first time in a subscription, you're getting new games like Madden NFL 19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V and Anthem", Andrew Wilson, chief executive officer at the company, says of the subscription plan, "and full access to more than 100 games from EA and other publishers with a single membership". Origin Access Premiere bringing new games to subscribers completes that offering in a compelling and disruptive way.

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

The research, published today in the journal Nature , measured cyclones from 1949 to 2016 and found that the speed at which they move has slowed by 10 percent.

The other major feature unique to Access Premier is being able to stream games instead of needing to download them.

Anthem, a social, connected Action-RPG with cooperative multiplayer at its heart. It also comes with perks for trying and buying new games.

In the meantime, players can try out the standard Origin Access for free this weekend. We're thrilled to be opening up this new way for players to access great games, with the freedom to play what they want, whenever they want.

Pre-registration for Origin Access Premier will open today, Electronic Arts says.
