    I am big fan of the standard Origin Access for £20 a month. Will have to see if this is worth the extra £60 in a few months time.

    Does it mean you can play new releases like fifa 19 without having to buy them??
    Or is it for the older games?

    Premier is for the new games (£90 a year). The basic version for £20 a year currently has 100+ games, but they are not new, they tend to be 1+ year old.

    So for £90 a year you can play any of the new EA games like BF,FIFA,Athem etc on release day and for as long as you have an active subscription??

    Good deal if that's right

    Correct. It is a great deal if you want to play more than one their big releases, and are not that worried about losing access after the year ends (or whenever you end it). You also get access to all DLC as well.

    I'm tempted to update from Access to this but I wouldnt mind to see a few more upcoming releases added to it. For the price, if there were only 2 games you wanted then youve pretty much broken even tbh.

    I do fancy Anthem but thats about it really so will just get that on a cheaper code instead. Seems decent though, especially if you love the annual sports games.

    The game is very good on Pc. I'm playing at 4k on ultra and it runs beautifully. It's a good looking game with excellent hdr 10
    I really don't understand the tactics of am football but I like the video game. Ea have done a brilliant job with really responsive commentary.
    I'll also be playing fifa 19 plus thees plenty of other games in the vault that are essentialy.
    What does £15 buy these days?
    For 50p a you get so much to do
    Fifa 18 career mode is broken on pc so I've switched to the pro which doesn't look as good but it's way better game than pc
    Ill try it on pc and see if Ea have done a better job
    Premier is a good deal for Ea gamers

    I've paid the £15 to try it out before deciding on the yearly pass.
    But as im interested in fifa, battlefield and anthem i think I'll go for it

    curious why fifa 18 career mode is broken on pc? I've stuck a few hundred hours into it and never had any issues except at first release with a little transfer bug that was patched

    The cpu ai is broken. Dig deep into the coding and it's there to be seen There are inconsistencies in the coding that cause issues
    Theres also the problem of scripting. It's the worst I've ever seen in fifa 18 on pc For the first time the scripting is hard coded into the. Exe and cannot be removed. In previous years the scripting could be removed Scripting is another word for match fixing.
    I've found fifa 18 career mode to be frustrating due to its coding errors and scripting. Ea are aware of the errors but have no intention of fixing them.
    On the pro fifa 18 career mode gameplay is vastly superior. The scripting is barely an issue. Yes the graphics are inferior but the gane is vastly superior
    I'm an avid fifa fan but I'm tired of Ea game of cat and mouse with the modders. Every time the mods improve the gameplay and fix the errors Ea patch them back to their previous state.
    If you use frosty editor the errors in the cpu ai coding are easily visiable. Ea could fix them but choose not to.
    And they have scripted the gameplay in fut in such a way to manipulate results in such a way that requires players to spend more money
    Sadly this scripting is also in career mode.
    Its impossible to analyse the coding on the pro so I can't compare the cpu ai coding between pro and pc.
    I will say that the wc add on vastly improved things on pc but this did not extend to career mode.
    I shall try fifa 19 out on pc via the origin premium If its still a broken gane then I shall play on the pro.

    Not surprising, it is a remaster of a 10 year old game, not a remake.
