In Origin Access Premier, this does not apply. It's not happening. Producer Ben Haumiller told GameSpot today at the EA Play event ahead of E3 2018 that while Madden 19 isn't coming to Switch, future instalments could.

Subscribers can play over 100 PC titles whenever they like as long as a Premier member is maintained.

The other major feature unique to Access Premier is being able to stream games instead of needing to download them.

Through Origin Access Premier, users will be able to enjoy full access to new Electronic Arts releases on PC before their official release dates, including Anthem, Battlefield V, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, and Madden NFL 19.

It's about that time of the year for Madden fanatics to start pre-ordering the next installation of their favorite game, if they haven't already.

EA didn't provide any specifics on how much the service will cost, and only mentioned that it will be launching later this summer.

Another big announcement as a part of this is that Electronic Arts is offering more than merely their own published games. Like the regular Origin membership, users can take 10% on other Origin digital purchases.

Last month, EA acquired a cloud-streaming technology from GameFly, and it looks like that will serve as the new backbone for the companies expanded Origin Access efforts.

"You never rule out getting you game in front of players. you want to go where everyone is".
