Electronic Arts (EA) has officially launched EA Play on Valve’s Steam platform, thus making it the first non-EA digital market to be available for the PC. Formerly known as EA Access or Origin Access, the subscription service is basically a combination of the two services that have also been renamed and revamped.
Players can subscribe to EA Play on Steam either monthly or annually. Much like its two predecessors, having a subscription to EA Play will give players access to EA’s relatively extensive game library. Additionally, you’ll also get a 10% discount on any digital purchases made on EA Play via Steam, including a full game and its expansions and special packs.
As mentioned earlier, you can subscribe to EA Play in one of two subscription plans: pay a monthly fee of RM17 or an annual lump sum of RM99 annually.
EA began relaunching several of its titles on Steam earlier this year after the two platforms came to an agreement, with Valve promising to help EA move both its subscription service and several of its major titles back to the platform. It’s also the fourth platform to launch on, with Origin, Sony’s PlayStation 4 (PS4), and Xbox One having already been given access.
For the uninitiated, there was a time when EA published all of its titles on Steam many years ago. Sadly, due to some security issues on Steam then, EA made the decision to break away from the digital platform and distribute them on its own platform, Origin.
