EA and Origin Access vault additions

+6 Deal Score
5,699 Views
Was over at Cheapassgamer and saw word of new incoming vault games just announced. Link to the announcement, but no word on how soon is soon.
https://www.ea.com/news/coming-so...9444705220

To sum up

EA Access now has ALL SW Battlefront expansions
EA Access will soon be getting the following:
Battlefield 1
Titanfall 2

Origin Access will soon be getting the following:
The Sims 4 Deluxe Edition
Oxenfree
Rebel Galaxy


For EA Access, if you've been on the fence about BF and TF2 deluxe combo in the Ultimate Sale then know that EA Access for 1 year is cheaper by $10. Of course this only gets you the base game, but if BF4 and SW:BF show anything, the extra content likely will come eventually.

Pretty surprised Titanfall 2 will be on EA Access considering they didn't do discounts for it or said it would be on there.

Indeed! In truth you can sometimes get a year cheaper then $25 or you can use Bing rewards on gift cards and pay for it that way.

This news saved me from the dilemma of getting either game on the Ultimate Sale. I actually purchased BF4 full game+Premium on sale about a month before the full Premium went to the vault. I don't regret the decision, but at the same time, had i known i would have just saved the $20. This will also be a nice boon for playing SW BF again as the season pass content should have a lot more people playing.

I have a ton of bing points sitting around... that would only be good for the xbox version right? I am a PC gamer so I would need the origin access.

Also this includes the full games too, not just the DLC? Can you download the games infinite times? I have a few PCs and switch my computers up all the time. (probably about 6 a year). I am sure most of this can be answered from reading the FAQ but I figure I'd just ask you. TY!

The gift cards are actually good at Microsoft.com and Windows store as well. Also it doesn't matter which version you buy as they all tie to your Microsoft account.

As for the games, as long as you keep Origin Access up, you can play the full game and redownload as many times as you like. The games also generally enter the vault as the base game with no DLC(unless like TF1 they made it all free). Depending on the game, they seem willing to add some or all DLC at a fortune point. Dragon Age Inquisition is an example of one they have yet to give any DLC for on EA Access that I've seen. Yet SW Battlefront now has all DLC after about 18 months since release. Course Origin Access has a slightly different vault and i think DA Inquisition for example is the deluxe edition instead.

No, you must buy both seperately.

Is there even a way to use bing points to get either EA Access/Origin? I couldn't figure out a way to use my MS Credit before or the Bing Credit. When I tried to use my credit either online or in the XBox it wouldn't let me choose credit...and none of the rewards are EA Access.

If anyone from EA Origin happens to find this thread I just want to give a big THANK YOU for bringing back all the maps to Battlefield Bad Company 2 to the PS3 and XBox 360.

Microsoft doesn't let you pay for subscriptions with gift cards, they want you to use a credit card so they can auto-renew. You could use a Amazon gift card but they are practically the same as cash so it would better to wait for a sale like CDKeys often has.
