Starting today, your subscription will also include, erm, access to titles from Warner Bros.
Typically, Origin Access only hosts games published by Electronic Arts and, in some cases, independent developers but the inclusion of six Batman games marks the first time games released by another major publisher have been brought into the fold.
Given that Origin itself has sold games from other publishers for a long time, it makes sense that the subscription service would similarly expand, especially if EA wants to compete with other services that are cropping up. The Lego Batman games are also being added, with more WB published titles coming at a later date.
Effective immediately, Origin Access members can now play the Batman Arkham and LEGO Batman trilogy.
The Lego Batman games are on offer today as well, and soon Bulletstorm - Lite, The Witness and Wasteland 2 will be added. Each of these games can be downloaded and played free of charge, providing - naturally - that the player continues to pay the monthly subscription fee.
"For players who are not a member of Origin Access, they can try some of these games and the full line-up of titles in The Vault for free during a seven-day trial from now through March 26, 2018". Other games now available through the Vault are "Titanfall 2", "Mirror's Edge Catalyst", "Mass Effect" and "Mass Effect: Andromeda", "Battlefield 3", "Battlefield 4" and "Battlefield 1", "Star Wars: Battlefront", "The Sims 4", "Simcity" and many more. If you are unaware of Origin Access, it is a PC-exclusive gaming service.
