Andromeda is headed to Origin Access


Andromeda is headed to Origin Access

While the game did not receive the warm reception that previous Mass Effect games reaped, it may still be worth checking out for longtime fans.

Dead Space 3's arrival, meanwhile, is notable largely because it means that the entire Dead Space trilogy is finally available on-demand, giving you the flawless opportunity to witness the series' disappointing decline, from sterling horror to bland action, first-hand. You'll be able to do all of this - as well as play every other game now available to Access members - as long as you're spending the $5 a month. No exact dates were given. Issues regarding the game's facial animations and overall performance made for quite a lot of meme-worthy content when the game was first released earlier this year. Since then the game has changed its developer and plans for the franchise.

Subscribers will also be getting "Play first" trials for Need for Speed Payback and Star Wars Battlefront II, giving them a chance to give these games a go before dropping full price on them. The Battlefront 2 blurb isn't specific about whether the number of trial hours are limited, while Payback says it'll be restricted to 10 hours ahead of launch.

Owners of Xbox One will receive two more treats these coming next months. Now the entire Dead Space collection is available on EA Access and Origin Access. The company has announced that Mass Effect: Andromeda will be joining both services soon, along with Dead Space 3 for EA Access on Xbox One. To benefit from these options, users need to have a subscription.
