"You'll need to turn it on before the end of October. The free month will begin on or about November 1 (it might take a few days for the wheels to start turning) as long as you've got 2FA enabled on Origin before the end of October. If you're already an Origin Access Basic subscriber, you won't be billed for November, and if you're an Access Premier subscriber you'll get a free month of that instead. And if you've already got 2FA enabled? Free month for you too."
Pretty great stuff. A Way Out, Anthem, bunch of Need For Speed games, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Vampyr are just a few of the good titles in there. For people wondering, here are the differences between Access Basic and Premiere:
What you get with EA Origin Basic ($3.99 per month or $24.99 per year)
What you get with EA Origin Premiere ($14.99 per month or $99.99 per year)
So, Basic has what matters, which is all the games. Here's the full list.

I hope they get it worked out pretty soon. I'm finished up with my Halloween playlist, have some drive space freed up, and am looking to start something new. I'd sooner fill that space with Vampyr than anything in my Steam backlog.
They are waiting for Red Dead 2 release so people have less time to play all Origin Access games in that free month and stay subscribed.
I played Vampyr with the MS Xbox PC game pass.
holly shit really ? EA with their diabolic thinking lol X)
Was it good? I wasn't completely sold on it from some of the vids I've seen, but on the basic plan we'll be getting it's honestly the only thing I'm at all interested in playing.
Free Origin Access month is live.
yes i get the mail!!!
still nothing for me :/
Whoever havent played it already,you should try a way out if you have good company. Its really underated and for me its by far the best local coop game.
this is one i would look forward to, if i'll get the free month someday
Nothing for me yet. Emails seem to be coming out in batches. However, some people here may like to know that the code activates an entire month of Access. Meaning no one "lost" these four days of the month. You get 30 days of Access.
Do you know the activation deadline ?
No. But people who got the email could answer that.
I got it today
I received an email a hour ago and got it.
I'm downloading BFV now!
So thank you "SomeoneTookMyUsernam".
Now it seems to be working. Have a nice Origin month everyone! :D
Thanks for the info about them sending an email when it goes live for your account, and getting a code to start it off. If it lets me (and i actually get the email), maybe i'll wait until Friday to activate it. That way it'll cover all my holiday weeks coming up for sure. :)
I got the email and it does not send you a code, it activates the month auto.
I never got an e-mail, but it shows my free Origin Access was activated automatically and is good until December 4th.
still nothing, i was already using 2FA so didnt do anything extra. maybe i was supposed to turn it off and on lol
No, the FAQ said you'd get it if you already had 2FA turned on.
I'm still waiting too.
same :/ and still nothing
Yep, it's happening :D
got an email today saying that my subscription is on
Please if i update a game i already owned before (to origin access version),
when Origin Access will end, it won't remove the game ?
nope , they will only remove the dlcs or the expansions
Thank you very much for your answer !
You mean base game still exist after Origin Access end and after that, we still can play ?
He was talking about a base game that he own before Origin Access, what you own (marked as "Purchased" in the Vault) will ofc stay, what you don't own will be removed after the subscription duration ends.
no i mean if you already have a base game but get the dlc with the origin access , after 30 days you will still have the base game ( since you did but it) but the dlcs are gone ( since you did get them from origin access )
But I added to library when Origin Access still open , and after end , the standard game still exist or buying ?? That's a question , not about dlc
it is simple, if you don't buy it, the game won't stay.
and rumour is it, that that doesn't even happen.
If you have the game installed with DLC, rumour has it that you can continue to play the DLC.
well nope i tried that :p and when my origin access ended the dlc where gone
so your savegames are broken then? can't see how they can remove something like a sims dlc w/o something goes wrong.
Got it, nice, thank you.
it's on ;)
and it is really one month :)
After Origin Access end in November, the game still exist or need to buying???
Still not active for me though :(
Same. I hope this makes the wait more bearable.
+1 algeria :/
Also waiting for it here in Ireland :(
Got the mail 3h ago.Activated 2fa late on 31.10, so i assume the order has nothing to do with that. First acc letter is a G, so maybe it's alphabetical, since it looks like a lot of ppl are still missing.
Mine is Z so it does't seem they go by alphabet. Unless they use some obscure, ancient one :)
k ;P how about account age? /me offering late 2010
Joined 2013, no email yet.
Same here. XD
mine start from d, still nothing... (2fa was already activated, and special for this event reactivated and activated again)
Hey guys, how it works the UPGRADES, i mean i have ME2, Dragon Age Origin and Tiberium Wars, all base games. I upgrade it all and now i have access to the addons and dlcs, Tiberium Wars also granted me more games like Renegade, Generals,etc, etc (all the C&C saga if im not wrong), what happen with the addons and dlc after the 30 days period expired? If i keep installed i will be able to keep playing them?
BTW, there's any backup tool on Origina, like on Steam (my internet connection is awful, so i usually use a laptop to download games in my sister house, made backup and install them later on my desktop pc).
install the game on your pc and let it download about 150mb.
then you close origin and delete the folder of the game, then paste the full game from your sisters laptop and open origin again.
the game should have just a small update and it's ready.
After Origin Access subscription is over the add-ons/dlcs will not be accessible and it actually can miss up your saves (ME games for example saves won't load because you will be missing content used in the save)
Andromeda is an exception because it only has skins. You can continue your save if you buy the standard edition later.
Even ME:A has a -uncommon or even rare- case of Origin Access could miss up the online features if you own standard edition
"MISSING ONLINE ACCESS you are not allowed to access the online features of this game"
Though this actually could happen with other games with MP too.
Yes, I guess you are right, but single player works like a charm (same as AC Odyssey, Ultimate savegame works with the gold edition, without the "unnecessary" deluxe skins). Never tried multiplayer.
Good to know, still for ACOD might also face save not working issue if owned is standard edition instead of gold (or season pass)
Subscriptions everywhere now.. maybe Ubi would follow EA footsteps yet again and come back to Steam... even bringing their Uplay+ to Steam too.
Yes, I can confirm that too. Somebody had bought the standard after the Uplay+ free month, and the game required the DLCs.
By the way, my Origin Access subscription is still inactive. I don't have any payment option added, maybe someone could confirm that it is working without it?
Still nothing for me :'(
Checking it every hour and still nothing.
Go on email go to other scroll down find Origin maybe u will find it i got it and im from bosnia so u should get it as well :)
Still waiting. I've seen various theories thrown around - that it's by region, or account name, or time of activation of 2FA, but there doesn't seem to be any consistency between who has it and who hasn't.
EA probably has one person doing this in their free time between developing fifa 21, 22 and 23. Nothing here, either.
