On the first day of E3 2018, Electronic Arts did not just introduce its upcoming games, it also unveiled a new PC subscription service called Origin Access Premier. It will be available this summer for $14.99 per month or $99.99 per year.

The Origin Access Premier service will begin later with its first title, Madden NFL 19, and will also include EA's titles such as Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V, and Anthem as the company announced on stage at E3. Premier members will be able to access games as soon as a week prior to their release.

The service is still a little ways off right now, but there's already confirmed Australian pricing set at $19.99 AUD monthly or $119.95 for a full 12 month sub. It will give access to far more games along with other things, in the online library of EA.

Yo dawg, EA heard you like all-you-can-play games subscriptions. Well, aside from the one requiring you to use Origin Access Premier.
