"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)

  • the chance to try out EA’s new games for up to ten hours, starting five days before release, with Play First Trials
  • access to The Vault, a library of games that grows in time.
  • the 10% discount in the Origin Store on full games, pre-orders, expansions, FIFA points

What you get with EA Origin Premiere ($14.99 per month or $99.99 per year)

  • full, unlimited access to EA’s games, starting five days before they release. Play the full game starting five days before launch without purchasing it separately, until you cancel your Premier membership.
  • access to The Vault, a library of games that grows in time.
  • the same 10% discount in the Origin Store on full games, pre-orders, expansions, FIFA points

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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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 )

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.

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.

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?
Thx!

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.

Comment has been collapsed.

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 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.
