Electronic Arts (EA) has released a selection of games on Steam and announced that its EA Access subscription service will be “coming soon” to the platform.
A total of 13 EA-published games and their DLC have been released on the Steam Store today (June 4th). The games added include Burnout Paradise Remastered, Crysis 3, Dragon Age Inquisition, Dragon Age 2, Fe, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Need For Speed, Need For Speed Heat, Need For Speed Rivals, Plants Vs Zombies: Battle For Neighborville, Sea Of Solitude, Unravel, and Unravel 2.
All 13 games are available on the platform with a discount of at least 50% or more between now and July 9th. They’ve launched on the store after EA announced last year that it would begin selling its games on the platform after removing numerous titles in 2011 following the launch of its EA Origin store service.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was the first game to launch on Steam Store when it released on November 15th, 2019. Today’s selection of 13 games is thought to be the first wave of EA-published content to launch on Steam, with more to come in the future. The upcoming Command and Conquer Remastered Collection will release on the platform tomorrow (June 5th).
Several key titles from EA’s game catalogue are still missing including Mass Effect 3 and Andromeda, The Sims 4 and its DLC packs, FIFA 20, Battlefield V, Apex Legends, Star Wars: Battlefront, and many more.
EA Access Coming Soon
As mentioned, subscription service EA Access is also coming to Steam. The service, which is already available on the Xbox One and PS4 consoles, provides users with unlimited access to a catalogue of over 50 games for a monthly price.
The EA Access service is priced at £3.99 per month or £19.99 annually and offers subscribers the added benefits of 10% off all digital content and access to trials of new titles before launch.
The PS4, Xbox, and Steam versions are similar to the PC-only Origin Access, a similar subscription service which is available through EA’s Origin online store and offers players two tiers; Basic and Premier.
Both offer unlimited access to a selection of games as well as discounts on digital games. The Basic tier offers trials for upcoming games ahead of launch while the Premier tier offers full access to new games.
No release date for EA access has been announced but it will reportedly launch this summer. A Steam banner advertising the service states that it’s “coming soon” but offers no more clarification.
Meanwhile, EA is set to host its EA Play showcase which will take place on June 11th and showcase announce new games, show off gameplay footage, and so much more. Check back for the latest news on EA and all things gaming.
