  • In-game rewards.
  • Exclusive content.
  • 10% discounts on purchases from Origin.

This is the standard version that comes with access to a growing library of games. This also comes with games that are in early access and beta versions.

Upcoming games that are published by EA are also available up until 10 days before launch. There will be 10 hours of playtime available which you don’t have to finish in one go. This comes with single-player and multiplayer game modes too!

The subscription comes with unlockables, rewards, DLCs, and free trials.

Members-only promotions are also available like the exclusive 10% discount on available games.


Where Can You Purchase EA Play

EA Play is available on the EA website, Origin, and some online stores like the Microsoft Store, and PlayStation Store.


What Platforms Is EA Play Available For?

EA Play is accessible on Steam, Origin, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and eventually for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.


What is EA Play Pro?

This is the subscription’s premium version that is more expensive but comes with a lot of perks.

  • Get to play new game releases with up to 10 days before it launches. (unlimited)
  • Get to access the latest games of EA. (unlimited)
  • Exclusive in-game rewards.
  • Members-only content.

There are two major differences between EA Play and EA Play Pro.

Just like the standard edition, upcoming Electronic arts games can be played 10 days before it launches. But this time around it won’t be limited to 10 hours. The Pro subscription offers unlimited playtime up until the game launches.

Also, Pro subscribers have access to all the EA published games with unlimited playtime as long as the subscription is active.

Pro subscribers also get to enjoy premier rewards and discounts.

What are EA Gift Cards?


EA Gift Cards allows anybody to give someone funds to purchase what they want on the EA Desktop and Origin.

The amount on the gift card gets transferred to the person’s EA Wallet when redeemed. This can be used to purchase in-game items, games, DLC, or EA Play membership.

This is available to be used on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.


Where Did Origin Access Basic and Origin Access Premier Go?

EA Access Premier

Nowhere! It seems that a simple name change happened to it. EA Acess is now EA Play and EA Access Premier is now EA Play Pro. Even though the name is different, it still comes with amazing games, benefits and rewards.

If you are already subscribed to EA Access, it will automatically be upgraded to EA Play for free.
