Origin recently launched its own subscription service, Origin Access. The service allows you to play some of the latest EA games, for the price of €3.99 a month. Origin Access now made its way to India, where it allows users to play EA’s latest titles for the price of ₹315 a month.

Origin Access in India is for now limited to 14 EA titles, mainly released during past couple of years. All users who subscribe to Origin Access in India will also receive a 10% discount when buying EA games that are not included in the Origin Access Package.

Here’s the list of games currently available to play with Origin Access in India:

  • Battlefield 3
  • Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe
  • Battlefield Hardline Digital Deluxe
  • Dead Space
  • Dead Space 2
  • Dead Space 3
  • Dragon Age II
  • Dragon Age: Origins – Ultimate Edition
  • FIFA 15
  • Need for Speed Rivals: Complete Edition
  • Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare
  • SimCity
  • The Sims 3 Starter Pack
  • This War of Mine

The package now consists of only 14 games, but EA will certainly include some more titles eventually.

Single purchase vs subscription

By launching Origin Access, EA introduced something that other game distribution platforms still don’t have, a subscription service. A lot of gamers, especially in less-developed countries, are not willing to give $50-60 for every game they play, so the subscription service might be the right thing for them.

On the other hand, with a subscription service, you’re not allowed to play any game you want, as you’re limited to the service’s offer, at least that’s the case with Origin Access. Microsoft is also making some radical changes when it comes to distributing games via Xbox, so we’ll see how these new ways of buying games will be accepted by users.

What do you prefer more, to buy the game you want and pay more, or pay less for a monthly subscription? Tell us in the comments.
