Origin Access Premier membership, like the standard service, allows users to take 10% off digital purchases.

Players now subscribed to EA Origin Access will maintain all the benefits of the service; it shall simply be renamed "Basic" tier.

Israel to declare Gaza protest killings ‘operational mishaps’

What's the difference between Origin Access Premier and Basic tiers?

Origin Access Premier will complement EA's existing Origins Access on PC (and EA Access on Xbox One). That basic membership costs $4.99 monthly or $29.99 per year. That probably isn't an issue if you only play through a game once-or don't plan to cancel-but it's worth noting. You could play the new Battlefield V single player, and run through Anthem in a month for $14.99 while checking out the service as a whole, it suggests. On top of that, you'll also get "10% discount in the Origin Store on full games, pre-orders, expansions, Federation Internationale de Football Association points, and more". People who are into sports games and first-person shooters might be more willing to play all those games if it costs $15 per month or $100 for the year instead of the full $60 at retail.
