Tis' the season for rebranding as several companies look to rebrand themselves to fit the mold for streaming services. EA is no different in the rebranding of EA Access and Origin Access to EA Play starting today, August 18th.
Electronic Arts took to a blog post on their official website to announce the restructuring of EA Access and Original Access becoming EA Play and Origin Access Premier rebranded as EA Play Pro. Users of the platform will not be hit with any additional charges in the rebranding. EA will keep the now dubbed EA Play formerly EA Access set at $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year, and the previously named Origin Access Premier now EA Play Pro priced at $14.99 a month or $99.99 a year.
