Titanfall 2 goes ridiculously cheap thanks to EA and Origin Access
A measly $6.99 will let you destroy all the Titans you want for a full month.
The Netflix model of subscription entertainment is steadily making its way into video games, and if Electronic Arts' approach is anything to go by, this is fantastic news. The publisher's own subscription service (called EA Access on consoles and Origin Access on PC) boasts an impressive library of games in its Vault, free for all subscribers to play as much as they want. And as of today, that library has gotten dramatically more impressive with the addition of the outstanding sci-fi first-person shooter Titanfall 2.
If you haven't read our review of Titanfall 2, let's just say this: its single-player campaign is one of the most creative of any FPS in years, and its multiplayer easily holds its own against the best Call of Duty and Battlefield have to offer. Better yet, developer Respawn Entertainment has just released a new update for the game adding in Frontier Defence, a co-operative mode that challenges players with defeating wave after wave of enemy troops and Titans for ever-greater rewards.
For those unfamiliar with EA/Origin Access, the service works much the same as Netflix. You can sign up for $6.99 a month and cancel any time, or pay $39.99 for a full year's subscription. This gets you access to any of the 60+ games in the EA Vault, there for you to download and play as much as you like. You'll also have the chance to play free trials of new EA games before they're released, plus you'll score 10% off all purchases made through EA's Origin Store.
