  • EA signs Warner Bros. up to Origin Access

Origin Access has always been a solid value, and now that we know that Warner Bros.is throwing their weight behind it, it's a no-brainer.

The addition of these titles also marks the first time that the company is allowing games from other publishers on its platform. It's a subscription service tied to the Origin platform, and provides a number of games that can be played without directly paying for them through something called The Vault. Other games will be added soon, including The Witness, Out of the Park Baseball 19, Lost Castle, Bulletstorm - Lite, and Wasteland 2.

Additionally, if you are not subscribed to Origin Access, there is a free seven-day trial available until March 26.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is notably also one of the few non-EA publishers to have games hosted on Origin's digital game store as well, and each of the six games added on Origin Access today also join the publisher's other titles on the standard storefront.

While younger players might enjoy the Lego series, older players should enjoy the Batman: Arkham series, as it was a big hit with both fans and critics. It's a bit confusing, but for the time being, EA Access and Origin Access are separate services, and separate subscriptions. Other games now available through the Vault are "Titanfall 2", "Mirror's Edge Catalyst", "Mass Effect" and "Mass Effect: Andromeda", "Battlefield 3", "Battlefield 4" and "Battlefield 1", "Star Wars: Battlefront", "The Sims 4", "Simcity" and many more.

As an EA service, it's only natural that Origin Access has thus far concentrated on EA's catalogue of games.

If you haven't played a lot of the games in the Vault, the monthly price-tag is very affordable.
