EA's Origin Access subscription service is running a limited time free trial

Try EA's Origin client before committing.

After undergoing a fairly significant overhaul last year, EA's oft-maligned Origin subscription service became easier, and thus more enjoyable, to use. For a limited time, it's now offering a free seven-day trial which grants users access to its full catalogue of games. 

Normally set at £3.99/$4.99 per month and £19.99/$29.99 per year, the service provides access to its free The Vault collection of games, limited-time early access to pre-release games (which includes save transfers should you decide to  buy the game at launch), and 10 percent off games in the Origin store.
