EA announced the new service earlier this week as the PC answer to EA Access on Xbox One.

Like the console version, it requires a subscription which will run you $4.99/£3.99 per month. An annual price has yet to be announced.

Users will also be handed a 10% discount on full games and sales, DLC, and more and at launch there will be 15 games made available in the Vault.

More will be added over time and it will also include some third-party titles which EA also offers for sale through Origin.

Subscribers will also be able to try out new releases for 10 hours days before anyone else, such as the upcoming platformer Unravel. Plus, all playtime transfers over to the full game once purchased.

The new service initially launches in the US, UK, Germany and Canada. At present, no further details have been provided for other territories.
