E3 2018 – Cloud Gaming & Origin Access Premium
Confirmed by the EA main man himself Andrew Wilson is that EA is moving into the cloud based business. Last month they acquired Gamefly’s cloud streaming tech which they will be integrating into their Origin Access service expanding it to many more devices. It was only an inevitable transition after its efforts in expanding its services and moving away from depending only on the main 3 platforms.
Cloud streaming isn’t the only thing they’re expanding the Origin Access service with. Andrew also announced Origin Access Premium which will act much like GamePass and bring their new games to the service at launch. Origin Access Premium of course comes with a premium price of $99 a year.
