What is EA Play? EA Play is a paid subscription service that was created as a result of EA Access and Origin Access merger into one service, that is dedicated to the fans of Electronic Arts’ games.

Thanks to EA Play, the user can access many discounts, exclusive trial periods on various new releases, and full access to EA’s game library.

Free trial on new games

One of EA Play’s best features is the option to play up to ten hours of newly released titles. The player can try out the game before deciding whether or not they want to make a purchase. What makes it different from simply playing a free demo version is that within the 10-hour trial period, the player can play a complete game, not an out-of-context fragment prepared for marketing purposes.

Discounts on Electronic Arts’ titles

Thanks to being the EA Play member, the player doesn’t have to pay full price for EA Games’ releases. EA Play subscription grants the user access to very attractive discounts, including 10% off on games and DLCs.
