Respawn’s upcoming Titanfall sequel, Titanfall 2, is excluded from the benefits of EA/Origin Access. This was confirmed to GameReactor (via IGN) and the exclusion is also mentioned on the official EA Access FAQ.
What this means is that EA/Origin Access members won’t get to play Titanfall 2 early. Playing games five days early is one of the best benefits of the subscription service. EA/Origin Access members also save 10 percent on all EA digital content, but not for Titanfall 2, since it’s excluded from the program.
Respawn told GameReactor that Titanfall 2 could become part of EA/Origin Access in the future, but not at launch. There is no word on why Titanfall 2 is being excluded from the program, but we’ll bring you more news as it becomes available.
Two Titanfall 2 multiplayer betas were held in August. The full game launches on October 28 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The 2014 original Titanfall only came to Xbox consoles and PC.
Another benefit of EA/Origin Access is that subscribers get access to an ever-growing, never-decreasing library of free games. The newest of these is Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, which was added last week. Subscriptions go for $5/month or $30/year on Xbox One and $5/month only on PC.
EA Access is not offered on PS4.
