EA Play 2018: New Origin Access Premiere plan announced

grubb [11:24 AM] EA brings cloud gaming and day-one games to its subscription service

The new subscription will allow you the ability to play games as they launch. It's not happening. Producer Ben Haumiller told GameSpot today at the EA Play event ahead of E3 2018 that while Madden 19 isn't coming to Switch, future instalments could.

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.

Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson took the stage at EA Play 2018 to announce Origin Access Premier. Dive into the action starting February 15, 2019 for Origin Access Premier members.

Alexa and Amazon Echo Now Available in France
With Alexa built-in, you no longer need to summon the assistant using a remote, like you had to with previous Fire TV devices. The Fire TV Cube has dual-band Wi-Fi built in but also comes with an Ethernet adapter for a wired internet connection.

"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".

EA didn't provide any specifics on how much the service will cost, and only mentioned that it will be launching later this summer.

2017's Madden 18 also skipped Nintendo Switch, but another EA Sports game-FIFA 18-came to the hybrid console that year. Alternatively, there'll be the option to pay for a full year's access, priced at $99.99. The trailer above features games from publishers like Warner Bros. and also feature indie games like Inside and Abzu. That'll help keep your hard drive from getting too cluttered, or needing to set aside a night purely for downloading and installing EA's ever-more-massive games.
