EA's subscription service, which The Next Web says is of “decent value” was often off gamers' radar because it was “confusing”. The PC version of the service was called Origin Access and the console version was called EA Access. EA is now going to call both EA Access and Origin Access' Basic tier by the same name - EA Play and the service that was known as Origin Access Premier will now be called EA Play Pro.

The price for these subscription services remains the same - $4.99 ( 373 approx) for EA Play and $14.99 ( 1,122 approx) for EA Play Pro.

EA has rolled out these new names just before the subscription service is headed to Steam. The phasing out of the ‘Origin' part of the name, combined with EA moving both its service and several exclusive games to Steam has left people wondering about the fate od EA's Origin PC client.
