    Electronic Arts continues to bring their games and services to Steam, following the publisher making an announcement last year where they said select titles would no longer be exclusive to their own Origin launcher on PC. Certain EA games on Steam are showing a banner advertising that EA Access, the company's subscription service, would be headed to Steam soon. Currently, EA Access' base tier costs $4.99 a month and gives players access to a vault of games that includes titles such as Need for Speed Rivals, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Unravel, Fe, and more. The service will launch later this summer, and will have more details announced during EA Play Live, which will take place on June 11th.

    Glad EA is back on Steam for the sake of convenience, couldn't care less about another subscription service though.

    Titanfall 2 on Steam when?

    EDIT: Just checked. They fucking brought over Peggle but not Titanfall. EA is beyond stupid.

    This feels like the ultimate capitulation but I'm not sure by who

    What's next, Gamepass on Steam? Or Steam on the Windows Store?

    Good for the people who like it! I will never like the subscription model myself, though, because it gives me that feeling that, if I'm not playing, I'm wasting money.

    Please come to switch! I would love to play this on the lite

    Also does anyone know if EA Pass is cross play (I have a PS4/Xbox 1) I don't remember if I used my login for the subscription or I made a login all I remember I spent $30 for the year and that was it

    I Like ^THIS^.

    Mostly just filler though, to pad out and justify the subscription cost, god that the option of Steam store is there now though.

    Just what I always wanted. Another place to NOT get an EA Access Subscription. I have no plans on playing Anthem 0.0.3a.5H1T or Surprise Mechanic Simulator, aka Any EA Game made in the past 5 years.

    ea is most likely testing the waters, and see if it's worth porting more games to steam

    It's dumb they're abandoning one of their best games :/
    Also, no offense, but name 3 people you know who play Peggle.

    May be some technical behind-the-curtains reasons, especially considering multiplayer-oriented nature of the franchise. May be testing the waters for now. May be just some business decisions (EA is usually good at those, unethical as they are - that's why they're so stinkin' rich in the first place). Besides, they brought over a ton of other games besides Peggle, so it's not like they actively chose Peggle over Titanfall or something.
